Plant a Tree

Tree canopy is important because trees provide shade, reduce stormwater runoff, and shield structures from the wind. Additionally, trees are aesthetically pleasing and they help communities develop their identities.

We should all take the time to plant a tree because new trees would improve the physical landscape, increase the sense of place in our communities, and boost citizen morale. Many citizens feel powerless and incapable of fighting global climate change, and the act of planting trees would make community members active participants in the fight to build a greener tomorrow.
