Trees and Climate

Do trees help moderate climate?  According to the Arbor Day Foundation, yes.  See the article "How Trees Fight Climate Change".

The Arbor Foundation states "Whether you plant trees around your home and property, in your community, or in our national forests, they help fight climate change. Through the natural process of photosynthesis, trees absorb CO2 and other pollutant particulates, then store the carbon and emit pure oxygen."

If that inspires you, go out and save some trees (like the many mature, beautiful ones at Minto Brown Park, pictured here) and plant more trees!
