Building Stronger Communities
Community trees are a critical element of urban life. In addition to providing natural beauty, these trees reduce air pollution, lower urban temperatures, help to manage stormwater runoff, improve the health and well-being of residents, reduce crime, and bolster community pride.
But between urbanization and increasingly destructive natural disasters, many cities and towns no longer have the trees they need. We must act to green communities worldwide and ensure that everyone has access to the benefits trees provide.
