Trees

We love trees. Trees in your yard can help a great deal with slowing down stormwater.

We also had a webinar during the summer on The Importance of Trees.

Trees and native plants benefit a community. Their above-ground features - food, shelter, landing places, etc. are important for wildlife and the part we don't see - the roots - are important for holding soil together and soaking up moisture.
