MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury will be the recipient of 50 new trees to be planted in 2021, courtesy of a grant through the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, in cooperation with the St. Joseph River Basin Commission, the U.S. Forest Service, ReLeaf Michigan, the Michigan and Indiana Departments of Natural Resources, and the Davey Resource Group Inc.

Six communities were chosen for the tree program: Buchanan, Coldwater and Sturgis in Michigan, and Angola, Syracuse and Middlebury in Indiana.
