In honor of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, Sustainable Saratoga has set a lofty goal
With YOUR help, we can leave a green legacy for future generations.
WHY SHOULD YOU PLANT TREES?
- You benefit from trees – lower energy bills, increased property values
- You can fight climate change – reduce heat islands, lower energy use, and more
- Trees provide food and habitat for wildlife, including important pollinators
- Increasing evidence suggests trees make us healthier and happier
WHAT TREES SHOULD YOU PLANT?
We recommend LARGE-GROWING, NATIVE SHADE TREES because large growing trees provide far greater benefits than small ornamentals and native species provide food and shelter to native birds, mammals, and insect pollinators.
