Help Preserve and Renourish Meggett's Tree Canopy
Trees play a critical role in creating healthier, safer, and more connected communities. They clean our air, filter our water, and even decrease storm surge, flooding, and hurricane impacts; trees also provide shade and cool our denser residential areas by up to 10 degrees, which can help reduce electrical usage. Trees support wildlife and aquatic life by providing habitats and helping to keep waterways healthy. This ensures that ecosystem balance can be maintained, and biodiversity can thrive. Even as social and economic issues arise in our nation, trees continue to connect communities, cultures, and generations. Neighborhood trees have shown the ability to reduce stress, improve overall health and development in children, and encourage physical activity. And a healthy communitywide tree canopy fosters economic advantages as well as an increase in civic pride among residents. Every tree planted is a step in the right direction- can you imagine the beneficial impacts we could see if every Meggett resident planted even just one new tree?
