Plant a tree

Planting trees, lots of them, can help mitigate the effects of greenhouse gases. Trees capture carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and with younger trees capturing more, the effect will happen sooner than later. While it's not a total solution (after all, we still need to reduce our emissions), trees also have other benefits such as habitats and food for animals, clean air and shade from the sun.
The City of Edmonton's Root for Trees has a number of programs, from tree planting events, advice on tree planting and more. Once you've planted a tree, be sure to add it to the yegTreeMap.
