Living Legacy Friends of Trees Chatham
"Look deep, deep, deep into nature and then you will understand everything"

Friends of Trees is committed to improving and maintaining the community's green infrastructure by planting, caring for, and advocating for protection of trees in Chatham's public parks and streetscapes; educating the public about the important role of trees; and supporting local non-profits and schools that share our mission.

Friends of Trees is a non-profit organization governed by a volunteer board of directors. Our mission is funded completely by private donations from our generous community.

Please give your trees a drink of water

Too cool down, sit beneath a tree,
 take a walk in the woods or a park.

Temperatures are about 10 degrees cooler
in the shade then in the direct sun. 


How do Trees Mitigate Climate Change?

Click Here to view a short presentation by Friends of Trees that answers that question

Of the many benefits trees provide us, perhaps the most important is the role they play to help stop climate
change.  Their ability to remove carbon dioxide from the air, store carbon in their branches and trunks and
surrounding soils, and then release oxygen into the atmosphere is a service we can't live without, literally.
