This month we’re featuring a young street tree. With harsh conditions and scant access to water, street trees like this one live an average of only 8 years. They never grow large enough to provide shade or beautify the street.
Tech Networks of Boston supports the preservation of mature urban trees, which make neighborhoods more pleasant, filter our air and water, and moderate temperatures. Let’s save the decades-old trees entrusted to us by past generations.
We hope you’ll use this contest as a fun way to get to know your city’s trees!
