We’re thrilled to invite you to change the planet with us. On Arbor Day, Earthlovers across the country plant trees to honor the work forests do for us all over the planet—convertingcarbon dioxide back into oxygen for us. This Arbor Day, The Grove will go one better. We’re not justgoing to plant trees. We’re going to start cultivating our very own urban forests.What is an urban forest?Urban Forest(ûr‘ bәnfôr‘ әst)n. Dynamic ecosystems that provide environmental services such as cleanair and water; cool cities and save energy; improve air quality; strengthen quality of place and localeconomies; reduce storm water runoff; improve social connections; complement smart growth; andcreate walkable communities.While we don’t have vast tracts of land to restore, we can improve the green spaces right outside ourfront doors. Our spaces are perfect for cultivating our urban forests. Trees purify our air and water, coolour cities, save energy, create animal habitats, and beautify urban environments. If we want our planetto thrive, we need to cultivate our trees. And now, the trees need you.Over the next year, we’ll add one plant for every Grove resident to our urban forests across the nation.We’ll be bringing in the first stage plantings for our Urban Forest on April 24, 2012. Shovels andrefreshments will be provided. Join us in welcoming our new additions and helping them get settled in.Big change starts with small choices. What will you do to make the world better this Arbor Day?http://tedrollins.orghttp://www.tedrollins.net
