Benefits of planting trees

Not only will it create more natural beauty, but increasing the number and quality of trees can also have a positive impact on the environment. Climate change is caused in large part by deforestation.

The following quote is from a climate scientist. It makes the point that deforestation can be reversed and that creating a greener community can help protect the environment.

Science and data speak for their own sake. There is no shortage of data showing that climate change has affected our natural environment, weather patterns and economy. It is time for us to act. We must make greener, more sustainable and more environmentally-friendly choices. We need to reduce deforestation, create more green space, trap solar energy, wind and waves, and make electric vehicles. This will help us slow down climate change and leave a better world for future generations.

About the Marietta Tree Keepers

The Marietta Tree Keepers describes themselves as follows on their web page at the City of Marietta website.

Marietta Tree Keepers, a 501(c),(3)non-profit volunteer organization, is dedicated to planting, conserving and protecting trees in and around Marietta, Georgia. Marietta is a city rich and diverse in history, but it is also experiencing tremendous growth.

Our main goal is to educate people about trees and how to plant them, as well as how to water them. We help them to appreciate the great trees that we have in our 180-year-old community. These trees were once used for agriculture, but are now being destroyed by road construction and development. We stress the many benefits trees have for our community. They reduce air and noise pollution and cool the air. They also help to conserve energy and manage our precious water resources. Trees can also improve property values by reducing soil erosion, wildlife habitat, and greenspace.
