The Bedford Oak

The March 25 forum will explore the role that trees, like the Bedford Oak, play in providing clean air and water, fertile soil, plentiful habitat and increased biodiversity.

A study released in 2021 revealed that a third of the world’s trees are at risk of extinction, as climate change and extreme weather events take their toll. The irony is that trees, as Eve Hundt, program director for Bedford 2030 points out, are a powerful force for combating climate change. And healthy trees provide essential ecosystem services like clean air and water, fertile soil, plentiful habitat and increased biodiversity.

With that in mind, Ms. Hundt has organized Bedford 2030’s first Rooted Solutions community forum, “The Power of Trees.” Besides celebrating the critical role of trees in combatting climate change, the Power of Trees Community Forum will have an extended lineup of speakers, hands-on activities, and real-world tips to protect the tree canopy.
