In the wake of a what feels like an extended winter in New England, this year’s Arbor Day on April 27 holds a special significance.
With four nor’easters in March alone, thousands of trees collapsed or suffered significant damage. In fact, more than 200 trees were uprooted in Brewster’s Nickerson State Park just this winter.
Though many of us are scarred by the images of trees on top of cars and houses, the health of our state’s forest is critical in reducing the severity of climate change. Plant, nurture and celebrate trees every day – they had a tough winter, too.
