Kurt Peacock Presents: Tree Planting BMPs and why everyone should offer planting services
Tree removals are a natural part of our industry. Since humans (according to a study by National Geographic have cut down 50% of the trees on earth in less than 500 years) and pollution by humans have tipped the scale even further towards planet warming, all people on earth need to plant more trees. Poor tree selection and improper planting methods and subsequent care lead to premature decline and removal. We as an industry need to care more for trees.
