Volunteers in the QCA are kicking off part of the "Million Trees" project with Living Lands and Waters.

The ultimate goal is to plant a million plus trees along the Mississippi corridor.

The volunteers are planting more than 300-thousand oak trees near the Eastern Avenue Library. When the trees start growing more, they will be dug up and then given away at events for Living Lands and Waters, headed by CNN's Hero of the Year, Chad Pregracke.

The trees are planted on city property.

"Living Lands and Waters is actually leasing the property from us for a dollar a year," Davenport city arborist Chris Johnson said. "We just felt this was a really good opportunity to put this open wide green space to use."

He adds, the land was empty before and people would come out there to walk their dogs. He still encourages people to go out there and enjoy the trees.
