#Treechat celebrates Annual National NeighborWoods® Month with ACTrees to focus attention on the value of trees in our communities this October. Fall is a time when most of the country’s weather accommodates good tree-planting, though many people may not have tree-planting in mind.
On #Treechat this week, we will learn about participating in National NeighborWoods® Month by volunteering, hosting a local event, or donating to help plant trees during October. This year marks the event’s 10th Anniversary and we expect it to be the biggest yet with more trees in the ground and volunteers engaged!
