ReLeaf Cedar Rapids is the plan developed through the collaboration of the City of Cedar Rapids, Trees Forever, Jeff Speck & Associates, and Confluence, Inc. to replant trees following the August 2020 derecho. The plan was created to guide the City, institutions, non-profit organizations and private landowners in replanting the urban canopy in Cedar Rapids. The public and multiple other partners participated in the plan including the Monarch Research Project.
The Re Leaf Cedar Rapids plan was designed so that tree plantings address climate concerns, preserve neighborhood character, and balance equity across neighborhoods. The plan includes yard planting information and tree recommendations for residents. The Re Leaf Cedar Rapids Plan also includes planting more than 42,000 trees along Cedar Rapids streets and in city parks. It includes detailed designs for 38 parks and a prioritization plan for planting all parks.
