Landscapers spruce up highway embankments

Posted: Updated:
(WJBK) - If you're like FOX 2's Jason Carr, you wonder how things get the way they are.

Like, what's the story with highway landscaping?

Does someone plan it, plant it?

Yep.

Fahmi shows Carr his diagram of how an MDOT designer envisions all these trees being planted between Interstate 696 and Northwestern Highway.

I guess the trick is to make it look randomly natural?

Armando is planting a tree and wrapping it with special bug paper and tape. That's 'TLC' considering the size of the job.

Armando says he puts about 50 to 60 trees out a day.
