TREE CONSERVATION

Benefits of Protecting Trees :
As important as trees are, their survival is often threatened by development. Millions of trees are needlessly destroyed in this way each year, because many communities do not have strong tree preservation ordinances.

For instance, developers commonly clear-cut building sites to make construction faster and easier. Tree conservation can have positive environmental, economic and health benefits for all communities.
