"Healthy Forests = Healthy Communities"
Trees are a big part of the resources we use every day. Trees and plants give us clean air and water. Trees and their roots help keep soil where it belongs. Trees give us wood to build our homes. We depend upon trees every day. Forests are one of the most vital ecosystems to human life. They are alive and working 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. We aren’t the only ones that need trees. Animals need trees too. Arboreal animals are animals that spend most of their time in trees, such as squirrels, bats, birds, monkeys, snakes and frogs. Native wildlife is becoming decimated by lack of food, plant species are disappearing and local industry has been impacted due to declining tree populations. Providing accurate information is essential. Find out what trees grow in your area, and see what your community is doing to help them. You will find a variety of opinions from a variety of sources about how to best care for our trees.
