As one of our core focus areas, we are committed to planting trees to grow a vibrant and resilient urban forest. Our urban and community forests provide a multitude of benefits to both humans and our environment. Trees clean the air, mitigate storm water runoff to our lakes and rivers, sequester carbon, shade our homes, cool our cities, and provide more and more of these benefits as they increase in age. Trees keep us healthy, improve livability, reduce stress and crime, increase property values and increase business traffic.
In the end, the real question is, what can’t trees do?
