Did you know that New Orleans is one of the least forested cities in the country? Not strictly because of Katrina destroying existing trees, but more so because of urban development not including greenspaces.
I think we have such a beautiful city with the potential to become even more beautiful once more greenspaces are added. So I decided to do something to help our city become more beautiful: I became a Tree Trooper! TT is a volunteer group through Parkway Partners that plants and maintains greenspaces throughout the city.
Not only does this give me a chance to give back to the city I love so much, but the continuing education I get also gives me the knowledge to help you create the perfect greenspace at your home.
Let’s get planting, New Orleans!
