FirstEnergy, YSU to donate, plant trees in Mill Creek MetroParks

While the white snow may be coming in soon, that’s not stopping Youngstown State University and FirstEnergy from planting some green trees before then.

FirstEnergy is partnering with the school to plant 1,600 trees to expand the university’s Legacy Forest at Mill Creek MetroPark’s Collier Reserve in Canfield, which recognizes the university’s first-year students.

According to a news release from FirstEnergy, a variety of hardwood trees will be planted across the 300-acre preserve on Thursday, Nov. 16.

Since 2021, FirstEnergy has donated and planted more than 60,000 trees throughout its six-state service territory, including more than 5,000 trees here in the Mahoning Valley.
