Trees provide countless health, economic, habitat, and environmental benefits. Despite their value, trees continue to disappear at an alarming rate. At a time when the Chesapeake Bay watershed is struggling to meet water quality goals, planting trees remains one of the most successful and cost-effective solutions to reducing polluted runoff and cleaning local waterways.

Trees also provide significant benefits in urban areas, where they contribute to the resilience of communities in the face of raising temperatures, flooding rains, and climate change threats.
