Video Break: Urban Forests

December 26th, 2012|Tags: |


For today’s post, we’d like to give our readers a fun three-minute break. If you enjoy these short videos about the benefits of urban forests, please share them with your friends and tell your city council how much your neighborhood trees mean to you!

  1. Urban Forests Cool Our Cities


    Trees and greenspaces in cities cool our cities, reducing heating and cooling costs and making time outdoors more pleasant, but often this benefit is forgotten in the midst of other municipal concerns. Contact your city council or mayor’s office to tell them how important trees are in your city.
  2. Urban Forests Clean Our Air


    Trees and greenspaces in cities clean our air, reducing smog and pollution, but often this benefit is forgotten in the midst of other municipal concerns. Contact your city council or mayor’s office to tell them how important trees are in your city.
  3. Urban Forests Create Happy Cities


    Trees and greenspaces in cities create a sense of calm and community, reducing stress, but often this benefit is forgotten in the midst of other municipal concerns. Contact your city council or mayor’s office to tell them how important trees are in your city.

    Thanks for these great inspirational videos.
    For the past several years, I have worked diligently with members of our County Council to obtain better tree protections and conservation measures in Montgomery County, MD. In December 2012, Councilmember Berliner introduced two bills — Bill 35-12 and Bill 41-12 which were developed with advice from Mark Buscaino of Casey Trees. An effort to pass the bills is being led by Conservation Montgomery. Our website contains links to the Council packets on each bill. See http://conservationmontgomery.org
