NWF Provides Trees for Youth and Organizations to Improve Communities Through Tree Planting
Date:1/14/2014

Reston, VA (PRWEB) January 14, 2014

National Wildlife Federation (NWF) is currently accepting applications for youth leaders and organizations wishing to hold a sapling tree planting event this Spring as part of NWF’s Trees for Wildlife program. The program aims to educate and prepare a generation of conservation stewards, expand the number of trees worldwide and protect and improve natural resources. As an educational program, it also provides activities to help young people learn about the importance of trees and how to plant and take care of trees for the future.

“Trees are such an important part of our ecosystem, they provide such a wide array of benefits,” said Eliza Russell, director of education programs at National Wildlife Federation. “Trees are homes providing food, water, shelter and places for wildlife to raise their young. These tree planting events which plant native sapling trees are not only improving communities but they help to ensure wildlife can survive and thrive for years to come.”

As part of the event, participants will learn about the many benefits of trees and their role in the environment, including:

  • Trees improve air quality, absorbing pollutants and filtering contaminants from the air.
  • Trees improve water quality, reduce flooding and erosion and slow evaporation through stabilizing stream beds and filtering water through leaves.
  • Trees help reduce energy costs for schools and homes by providing shade in the summer – reducing air conditioning costs – and acting as wind breaks in the winter.
  • Trees improve health by providing a calm and relaxing environment and help add to an overall sense of well-being. Hospital studies indicate that patients who have window views of trees and green spaces are calmer and more relaxed, and many heal faster.
  • Tree planting projects are a visible sign of a commitment to
