It's time for Part Two of the NC Tress and Storms webinar series available for homeowners ... Response & Recovery: Now that the Storm has Passed, Plan for the Future -- In this session, you will be guided through a typical clean-up response once the storm has passed. What damage might you encounter? What kind of assistance can you expect from your arborist? We will share insights into what trees can be readily saved and what trees may require removal. Finally, we will help you think about future planting projects, and how to work with your arborist to develop a long-term plan for proper tree management that will keep your landscape healthy and beautiful for years to come, no matter what the storms may bring.

Trees help with stormwater management in our communities. Leafy canopies help reduce erosion by intercepting falling rain, branches and trunks increase surface area for rain to land and evaporate, and roots take up water and create soil conditions that promote infiltration. Trees help reduce flooding and erosion! #NCForestsUnited #NCEarthDay2021

Spending time near trees impacts mental health by increasing energy level, while decreasing blood pressure and stress. People exposed to areas with good canopy cover have been shown to experience a third less psychological stress. Go sit under a tree and improve your mood! #NCForestsUnited #HealthyTreesHealthyLives #NCEarthDay2021

Medical Providers Are Taking Nature Therapy Seriously

Scientists and medical providers are becoming increasingly impressed by how the simple act of spending time outdoors in a natural setting can lead to improved physical and mental health.

Especially in communities where green space is scarce, people who fill “park prescriptions" can boost immunity and reduce anxiety.

Over 1 million pounds of roadside litter collected this year

The Parks Conservancy's TRASH MOB is proud to be a part of North Carolina's litter clean-up efforts! Everyone can do their part to help keep litter off our streets by:

• Securing their loads before driving. Unsecured trash can fly from a vehicle and end up as roadside litter.
• Trash should be held onto until it can be disposed of properly. Keep a litter bag in your vehicle so you can properly dispose of trash later.
• Recycle whenever possible. Recycling protects our environment, saves landfill space and keeps the community clean.

As part of its litter removal efforts, N.C. Department of Transportation crews, contractors and volunteers have now collected more than 1 million pounds of litter from roadsides statewide this year.
