Making the Case
Trees are a vital asset to a school community, whether on campus or around town.
On a global scale, trees provide shade; protect us from the wind; clean our air and water; and fight climate change, poverty, and hunger. At home and at school, trees and green spaces also improve cognitive development, encourage outdoor activity, improve attentiveness, and reduce stress in children.
When a person learns these benefits and has meaningful experiences with trees in their youth, they unlock great potential to become a champion of trees as a solution to global issues.
You and your school can make a difference by adopting the Tree Campus K–12 goals and recognizing your commitment to tree education and the trees on your campus and in the community.
