Ann Gallagher of US National Park Service Talks About Benefits of Trees

8-29-17   Ann Gallagher of US National Park Service spoke about how our hard our trees work. Trees are vital to our earth because they consume CO2, water, and sunlight, and then convert that into sugar (food for the trees) and Oxygen (for us).  Well placed trees around our homes are beneficial.  They shield houses from winds, provide shade to reduce cooling costs, clean the air of pollutants and absorbs excess water. One mature Tulip Poplar tree can “drink” 16,000 gallons of water each yr.   For more information:
