City of Trees joins global initiative to plant (even more) trees 🌳

Future of Downtown

The City of Boise is now apart of a global initiative to combat deforestation and the effects of climate change.  

In February, BoiseDev told you about the City of Trees challenge headed by Boise City Council President Elaine Clegg.

The goal is to plant 100,000 trees over the next decade. This number also represents one additional tree for every household in the city. In addition, 235,000 seeds (the number of Boise residents) will be planted in Idaho’s forests.

Boise is one of the first cities to submit a pledge to the global initiative 1t.org. It’s one of 26 other pledges from across the nation .

Although the city is still in the process of rolling out the challenge to residents, 335,000 have already been pledged.
