Trees need to be protected

“Protect what we already have” is a project designed to present to the general public an additional closeup view of why it’s so important to protect, preserve and respect the overall value trees actually possess.

Trees are a source of shade. They cool our homes, attract songbirds and mark the changing seasons.

Additionally, trees conserve energy, reduce soil erosion, clean the air we breathe, as well as protect rivers and streams.

In order for them to benefit us, we must care for those already standing and regularly plant even more. By doing so, we can improve our community and environment.

Bringing reminders such as this to the attention of the general public is the mission of “protect what we already have.” Hopefully, these efforts will underscore the necessity of everyone to recognize the tremendous worth of what has been initially gifted to us all.
