Buy a tree - plant a tree!
... or buy a tree for a young planter in our community looking to get her tree planting badge.
The Upper Thames River Conservation Authority has set aside 200 trees to be planted in the fall. Beneficial Goods has partnered with the Girl Guides in Stratford, and with the guidance of the city of Stratford, we hope to find a great place to plant 200 trees in 2022!
Trees are an important part of every community. They provide oxygen, improve air quality, conserve water, preserve soil and increase our quality of life by bringing natural elements and wildlife habitats into urban settings. Trees in cities, deflect the sunlight, reducing the heat island effect caused by pavement and commercial buildings.
One acre of forest absorbs six tons of carbon dioxide and puts out four tons of oxygen. Both above and below ground, trees are essential to the eco-systems in which they reside. Far reaching roots hold soil in place and fight erosion. Trees absorb and store rainwater which reduce runoff and sediment deposit after storms. This helps the ground water supply recharge, prevents the transport of chemicals into streams and prevents flooding.
