Why is Native Tree Care So Important?

Caring for native trees is a crucial step toward building a sustainable future for everyone. Native trees play key roles in our ecosystems, supporting biodiversity and providing essential benefits to both the environment and our local communities. 

Here’s why it’s important to care for our native trees in Sonoma County: 

  • Enhance local biodiversity: Native trees provide habitats and food for local wildlife, supporting a balanced and thriving ecosystem. 
  • Improve air and water quality: Trees act as natural filters that clean the air we breathe and absorb rainwater, which helps prevent erosion and protect our waterways. 
  • Combat climate change: Just like how we breathe in oxygen, through photosynthesis, trees capture carbon dioxide, which is a major greenhouse gas that harms the environment. This helps mitigate the effects of climate change. 
  • Support community well-being: Green spaces with healthy native trees encourage social cohesion within communities and help foster a deeper appreciation for nature. 

With the skills you’ll learn from this workshop, you’ll be able to better understand how to care for native trees, so you can help make a positive impact right in your own backyard.
