Planting Trees to Address Climate Change
Groundwork Lawrence's GreenStreets Tree Planting Program works to increase vital tree cover in a sustainable manner in the City's densely populated, low-income urban environments. Groundwork Lawrence works directly with homeowners to increase the urban tree canopy by providing educational workshops, technical assistance, and supplies free of cost. The GreenStreets Tree Planting Program seeks to address the impacts of climate change by increasing the urban tree canopy which will sequester and absorb carbon dioxide. An increase in the urban tree canopy also mitigates the heat island effect by reducing energy costs, decreases stormwater runoff and erosion, and improves air quality.
