This online forum will make the case that trees are a public good and discuss steps that local organizations and communities can take to protect our tree canopies.

Mature trees sequester substantial amounts of carbon, something that saplings cannot accomplish for decades. The loss of even a single tree impacts air quality, heat levels and storm water drainage. So every loss of a mature tree contributes to the climate crisis and impacts public health.
