Tree Planting Programs
It’s no secret that planting a tree is one of the best actions that you can take to improve and protect the environment. What you may not know, however, is that there are already hundreds of programs and efforts dedicated towards planting trees! By planting trees, we can improve air quality, harbor wildlife, and reduce carbon emissions that affect our climate. Along with the environmental benefits, the outcome has many social advantages, including the enrichment of our cities and towns.
Above is an interactive map of “tree planting” programs and efforts in the United States.
