Eco Corner By Jenn Cameron

It's February here in Fremont Township, and we are at the approximate mid-point of the winter season. While the natural world is looking a bit bleak at this time, trees continue to provide structure for us to look at and even reveal a few bird nests here and there!  

Let's review some of the unseen benefits trees provide all year long:  

- Trees planted near a home or office structure can potentially reduce heating and cooling energy costs 

- Native tree species provide food and habitat for a variety of insects, birds, and other creatures

- Trees help to clean our air and remove pollution from the environment

- Trees can intercept water runoff and help prevent land erosion

- Trees can help mitigate the problem of climate change by storing carbon

Healthy trees play several important roles in our neighborhoods and parks, in more densely populated urban settings, and across other dedicated green spaces. Of note, the Chicago Region Tree Initiative is working across the seven-county Chicago area to improve the quality and density of our collective urban forest. Let's make 2023 the year we learn more about the value of planting and protecting trees!
