A total of 761 trees were planted in early 2019 in order to beautify the Mars Hill Corridor. Fifty different tree species and cultivars, including elms, cedars, dogwoods, redbuds, oaks, and maples were planted. Major trees are spaced 50 feet apart throughout the length of the corridor, with secondary trees interspersed to provide color and seasonal interest. The trees, which were chosen with an emphasis on native species that will grow well in local soil, will provide color and foliage throughout the year and will become well-established with greater size and stature over a ten-year timeline.
