Planting Trees in Jacksonville, FL – 1,000 grows to 10,000

Deforestation is one of the greatest threats facing humanity. Trees create breathable, atmospheric oxygen through photosynthesis and they can sequester carbon dioxide in their leaves and tissues. They also provide habitat, food, and shelter for a tremendous diversity of life on Earth. With the implementation of many tree planting programs around the world, it has been discovered that planting trees is also a fantastic way to pull carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

Because of this, IDEAS For Us sees tree plantings as a critical part of our sustainability efforts. In 2014, we launched a program called 1,000 Trees Jax with the goal of planting 1,000 trees in the ground. Now that we have been successful with that we are planing 10,000 trees for 2015!
