The Chesapeake Bay Foundation-PA is urging Pennsylvanians to help plant trees at one of the many tree planting events groups are scheduling in the PA portion of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed April 13 to May 5.
Trees provide food and shelter for wildlife, cleaner air and cooler summer temperatures, increase property values, and reduce polluted runoff.
These plantings are critical to our clean water efforts, capturing and filtering out pollution before it enters our streams and tributaries, and helping alleviate flooding by stabilizing the soil.
