Community Cultivation Campaign
Keep High Point Beautiful and the High Point Urban Forestry Committee took inventory of the trees lost to accidental damage or disease along Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and found that many need to be replaced. Through the efforts of the Community Cultivation Campaign we endeavor to partner with the community to raise the necessary funds to replant trees and restore the landscape.
Keep High Point Beautiful and the City of High Point would like to offer our tremendous appreciation to everyone who supported and donated towards the Community Cultivation Campaign. While this campaign has come to a close, we look forward to continuing on with the important work of planting trees throughout our community.
We continue to be in awe of the giving heart of this community and we are honored to partner with so many wonderful residents, business, organizations and community partners. Please be on the lookout for more information on future plantings!
