OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) - The first phase of a new landscaping project is underway in Ocean Springs. Trees are currently being planted along Front Beach Drive.

Trees for the project were purchased under the Tree Planting Grant Program, administered by the MS Forestry Commission as part of the MDOT Transportation Enhancement program. The City received $15,000 in grant money with a $5,000 match.

Part of the match will be met with in-kind labor from the Department of Community Development and Planning with the City of Ocean Springs.
