Why Plant Urban Trees?
America's cities need trees. Trees in cities provide countless benefits for local communities — including reducing urban heat, increasing access to urban green spaces, protecting clean air & water, and more.
Unfortunately, trees are not distributed equally: communities of color and low-income communities are disproportionately affected by climate change, and need urban trees now more than ever.
