A grant from Consumers Energy will help make Morenci a little greener with 13 trees planted in various locations around the city.
Morenci received a $1,300 grant from Consumers Energy that was administered by the Michigan Forestry and Parks Association. This marks the third year in a row that the city received a tree grant from Consumers.
City workers planted the trees last week.
“We appreciate this money to help keep our town green,” said deputy city clerk Leasa Slocum.
