This gesture is highly significant. Indeed, there is an international movement to increase the canopy of cities and countryside. Acting on tree cover helps improve the environment, health and quality of life of residents, while providing an economically viable response to climate change.
Trees ensure our well-being and the quality of the environment, while forming an effective biological infrastructure to respond to multiple crises simultaneously. They reduce ambient heat and the incidence of heat islands, capture pollution, and capture rainwater before it fouls municipal pipes. They also contribute to the appreciation of property values.
In short, the more trees we plant, the more we improve our lot and that of the planet. It is a practical solution, relatively easy to achieve and generating social synergy.
