Our Three-Pronged Mission To Accomplish The Above
Within Whatcom County, we…
• PLANT the right native tree seedlings in the right places, especially in typically ignored or under-funded upland areas that others are not addressing.
• PROTECT mature or significant urban trees and our increasingly rare but essential second-growth and ‘legacy’ forests.
• CONNECT people together via informative events and hands-on action to build greater understanding and awareness of tree/forest issues.
