Restoring trees in both urban and rural landscapes represents one of the largest opportunities for nature-based carbon capture in the U.S., while helping communities achieve a host of objectives for sustainability and community well-being. But large-scale tree-planting (and tree-maintenance) efforts are expensive. Join Yale School of Forestry and World Resources Institute in partnership with ICLEI USA on November 12th at 1pm Pacific / 4pm Eastern
to explore innovative private finance mechanisms to accelerate tree planting in communities across the U.S.
