Western PA Conservancy's Conserve Magazine Dedicated To Planting, Protecting, Caring For Region’s Trees & Forests

The Winter issue of the Conserve magazine from the Western PA Conservancy is dedicated entirely to initiatives on planting, protecting and caring for the region’s trees and forests.
“Pennsylvania’s trees and forests are majestic, beautiful and essential to our region’s landscape,” said Thomas D. Saunders, President & CEO.  “And at the same time, trees are environmental workhorses.
“They help improve air quality, enhance habitats, reduce stormwater runoff and sequester carbon. Trees and forests are crucial to many of today’s environmental and conservation challenges, and to other species in nature with whom trees have a symbiotic relationship.
“In this issue of Conserve, we’re highlight the ways the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy’s work benefits trees, which in turn provide so many benefits to people, wildlife and the environment,” said Saunders.  “Since 2008, the Conservancy has planted almost 100,000 trees across our region-- along streets, on trails, in parks, along rivers and streams, and on our nature reserves.
“This issue is dedicated to where and why we plant trees, how we care for trees and forests, and the environmental benefits of and threats to our trees and forests,” Saunders explained.
