DETROIT - The nonprofit group The Greening of Detroit is kicking off an effort to plant 1,100 trees in the city this fall.

The organization is working with neighborhood groups and corporate partners on the effort, which begins Saturday in the city's Warrendale neighborhood.

Volunteers are being sought to help. They'll also be working in that and other parts of Detroit on Saturdays this fall through Nov. 3.

The fall work is part of an effort to plant 7,000 trees in Detroit this year. Additional information and volunteer sign-up are available on The Greening of Detroit's website.

Work begins at 9 a.m.  Volunteers this Saturday will meet near 7250 Brace St.
