Planting Native Trees to Support Local Food Webs
Native trees offer countless benefits beyond their four-season beauty––purifying air, shading and cooling in hot weather, storing atmospheric carbon, minimizing flooding and stormwater runoff and helping to sustain vital pollinators, birds and other wildlife. It is important to consider trees as part of a forest-like system, even when planted around homes and businesses, in parks and public open spaces, along city streets and highway margins and even in parking lot islands. In this one hour presentation, Anna will teach the why, what, and how of planting native trees to support local food webs. This program is presented in partnership with Aspetuck Land Trust.
