Mission & Vision Statements
Community Greening is a collective effort to improve our environment for people and nature.
We are an engaged community creating sustainable green spaces and a vibrant tree canopy to equitably strengthen our environment, economy, society, and health.
Why We are Doing it
We believe communities need to be proactive to respond to the ecological and human risks associated with climate change. Biodiversity loss, flooding and extreme heat are serious concerns that are exacerbated without trees. Promoting, planting, and protecting green space contributes to a resilient and sustainable community that recognizes the vital importance of a healthy balance between people and nature.
Trees have enormous long-term benefits for our environment. They clean our air and water, reduce energy costs, increase property values, improve health and well-being, and generate business.
