Why Tree Equity?
The addition of a forest creates definable change we can experience with all our senses.
Covid-19 exposed vulnerabilities and reminded us of our connection with each other and the outdoors.
A change with several short-term (and long-term) benefits can inspire hope for a better future.
A short video about why we do what we do
SIZE & SPEED
Ideally suited for small urban sites, matures in 20 years vs. 200 years for a primary forest
Remediates degraded urban soil and improves soil microbiome
Supports 16 times as many species as non-native landscape
Young plants allow formation of stronger taproots
Water and weed for 3 years, largely self-sustained after that; no chemicals needed
