State Forester to Discuss Importance of Trees, Forests at Climate Change Coalition Program
“Wisconsin’s Trees and Forests: A Societal Treasure Hidden in Plain Sight” is the topic when forestry expert Paul DeLong speaks at the Climate Change Coalition of Door County’s April 26 program at Björklunden in Baileys Harbor. DeLong will discuss the critical importance of trees and forests – the “lungs of the Earth” – at the event, which begins at 7 pm. It is free and open to the public.
DeLong, who served as Wisconsin State Forester for 14 years, is senior vice president for conservation at the American Forest Foundation (AFF) in Washington, D.C. His discussion of the myriad benefits trees and forests provide will include their vital role in carbon sequestration, which is key to any successful climate change mitigation effort.
The program is part of April’s Celebrate Earth Week observance. For more information visit climatechangedoorcounty.com.
