At Urban Bower we know the enormous global impact that trees have on our environment and the devastatingly negative consequences it has on our environment when we lose our trees to deforestation, logging and wildfires. We want to help reverse the negative effects of losing those trees by doing our part and planting new trees. For every $50 spent at Urban Bower, one tree will be planted - and because of you, that will help reforest California's forest, which have been devastated by drought, wildfires, and pest. Together, let's restore California's forests so that we can continue to enjoy their natural beauty for many years to come!
Known for its abundant woodlands, California is home to a whopping 33 million acres of diverse forests that provide us with recreation, wildlife habitats, and jaw-dropping scenery. If you happen to venture these pristine landscapes, you'll find yourself immersed in majestic forestry where giant coastal redwoods take the stage, often surrounded by rare plants. Unfortunately, five years of drought and large-scale bark beetle infestation have seriously damaged these once-thriving forests. Not to mention, 2017's record-breaking wildfire season burned more than 1.3 million acres – an area the size of Delaware. 2020's fire season have consumed close to 3 million acres, resulting in hundreds of millions of trees that must be restored.
Trees play a vital role in maintaining the liveliness of California communities. With your contribution, we will help restore areas affected by wildfires throughout the whole of California, thus producing ecological benefits such as habitat restoration and erosion control. With these funds, hard-working foresters will dedicate time to promote improved vegetation planning and resource management, helping to reduce the risk of catastrophic fires and floods in the region.
Some of the species we will plant include the Sugar Pine, California Redwood (known as the State Tree), Maple, Elderberry, Willow, Birch, Dogwood, Cedar, Giant Sequoia, and Walnut.
From everyone here at Urban Bower, the California Woodlands and its residents and wildlife to our shared home, our planet - We Thank You!
