One of the biggest things we can do to fight pollution and increasing carbon dioxide is to have a strong urban forestry program. We can reduce our cars trucks and buses all we want but we need a carbon sink and a natural air cleanser. Trees provide for both. San Diego has more vacant sites (places where a tree can be planted but no tree exists) than we have trees planted. Mayor Sanders recommendation to eliminate the urban forestry program will erase the progress our urban forester has made over the past decade. Trees save water, save energy, clean the air, promote shopping and healthy living. Not having an urban forestry department will be a detriment for our City's NATURAL ability to fight the current environmental issues we face.
