1 Million Trees partnership is important | Letter

I am in complete agreement with the 1 Million Trees partnership, and I think this movement is very important and should get all the support it needs. Using the prize drawings to incite people to participate is a great way to get people involved and interested.

Trees are the keystone for the recycling of matter. Their leaves combat global warming by producing oxygen, which we need. Their trunks store carbon for decades to come, and enable nature to persist. Their roots even contribute by preventing water pollution, preventing soil erosion, and recycling elements like nitrogen stored in the earth.

Marymoor knows the importance of trees, and by hosting this and future tree plantings, they are making it clear that they care a whole lot about the environment and its sustainability. “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not” -The Lorax.
