Why Trees?

Imagine your community without trees.  Would it make a difference?  Would anybody notice?  Unfortunately, human nature often causes us to take for granted those things which are essential until they are gone - including our urban trees. 

You can help change the way people think and appreciate the value of our urban forests.  It begins with educating yourself.  Be a student of how trees work and how they make a real difference in people's lives.  Be a part of your community's tree program and help others understand the importance of our urban forest. Then we won't have to worry about living in a world without trees.
