Trees play a critical role in any ecosystem: their leaves provide shade and cooler temperatures in the summer; their roots prevent or decrease erosion; they absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen into the air. After observing many older well- established trees being clear-cut, we facilitated passage of tree protection and anti-clear cutting legislation. Click here to see the "Tree Legislation".

Our goal is to educate the public about the value of older indigenous trees. In addition to providing shade, replacing carbon dioxide with oxygen and minimizing erosion with their root system, they are often resistant to local diseases and thrive in our particular environment.
