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.
