Call to Action : Sample Letter to Senators and Congressional Representatives
Thank you for joining us over the past several weeks as we've outlined the benefits of urban trees, the professionals who care for them, and the programs which support their survival.
TreePennsylvania, along with many of our partners, continues to engage in meaningful research, educate our communities, and fund necessary projects related to how urban and community forests are essential resources and a meaningful and wise investment of our financial resources.
The current Federal Administration has proposed a significant reduction in the budget for Urban and Community Forestry programs throughout the nation.
We've drafted a sample letter with simple examples of how TreePennsylvania assists communities throughout Pennsylvania and how a reduction in funding would drastically and immediately impact our ability to provide vital services to communities.
Please call or write your Congress member today (available here)! Let your Congressional Representatives know the importance of continued financial investment in urban and community forests in Pennsylvania.
Penn State University's Extension
Urban Foresters in your communities
Throughout January we've highlighted the five Urban Foresters working in the Penn State University's Extension Urban Forestry program. These foresters provide essential education and meaningful connections throughout the Commonwealth and need your help to secure continued federal funding for this important program!
