Water. It’s the most valuable natural resource we have on Earth. Yet the availability of clean, healthy water has become a major concern for many. Runoff from farm fields, city streets, parking lots, and lawns degrades our lakes and streams and erodes our soils. Every year in Iowa and Illinois we lose, on average, five tons of topsoil per acre. Wildlife habitat also continues to decline as more trees and native plants are removed from the landscape.
At Trees Forever, we care about the land and the people who work and live on it – today and tomorrow. Our vision is a future with clean water, healthy farms and communities, and a resilient environment that can sustain future generations.
