In partnership with the Upper Thames River Conservation Authority, we have set aside 200 trees to be planted this fall in the growing forest that is developing on the corner of Lorne Ave and O'Loanne streets in Stratford, Ontario.
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.
As long as the province continues to open up and allow for people to gather, members of the Rotary Club of Festival City will join the Upper Thames River Conservation Authority in adding young trees to the network of trees in the vibrant ecosystem developing there. Join in and plant a tree!
