South Sacramento NeighborWoods Program Coordinator | Sacramento Tree Foundation, Sacramento (Posted 5/24/17)
Trees in our cities are integral to our health and our quality of life. Not only do urban trees cool our neighborhoods and help to filter out air pollution, people who live in neighborhoods with more trees are benefitted in many ways: they spend more time with their neighbors, have lower rates of obesity, are more active, show lower levels of depression, and live longer lives. Unfortunately, the Sacramento region suffers from an inequity of tree cover of between neighborhoods, meaning that people that live in neighborhoods with less trees are not receiving the same support as those that live in neighborhoods with more trees. Sacramento Tree Foundation’s “NeighborWoods” program seeks to bring the benefits of trees to every community in Sacramento.
