In this webinar we will explore how distributing trees through a community canopy project can fit with your sustainability efforts, help maximize energy efficiency and engage homeowners within your community.

Kristen Bousquet, from the Arbor Day Foundation, and program partner Ian Jurgensen with the city of Orlando, will discuss how a tree distribution to homeowners offers the ability to positively interact with your community, educate on strategic tree planting, and promote green infrastructure leading to measured environmental benefits (such as air quality, storm water management, carbon sequestration, and energy efficiency).

These benefits are all quantified through meaningful data using a turnkey program that offers technology to assist with automated tree reservations, education, tree tracking, continued communication to the participants, and data/metrics showing the impact of trees planted.
