A research team found 31 hardy trees that sequester carbon efficiently for the New York region, mitigating against the impacts of high deforestation and carbon release into the atmosphere in that area. US cities have lost 20% of their trees in 10 yrs.

Trees are an important part of the climate change fight. It is easy to help - with just a dollar, you can plant a tree in the Alantic Rainforests!

Yes, I know this is not addressing the city trees, but I thought it of interest :)

Finally, "plant a tree" actually *means* something! Why not city trees? I think we can do in microcosm what is being done in macrocosm, right? Lobby for your local developers to adopt these policies, and put me down for twenty!

Oh, yes, urban trees are important too!

Here is some info on the American Forests organization and their Urban Tree Program:
