Environment Tree Planting Projects

In the United States every year we lose an estimated 36 million trees in cities and urban areas and rural towns.  By clearing out forests to make land usable for development, including houses, roads, parking lots, stores, and commercial and industrial buildings, we think that we are improving the everyday life of people.  In fact, the opposite may be true.

Trees play a very important part in cleaning the air, preventing erosion and subsequently waterway contamination, and have the ability to reverse the effects of climate change.
