FALLBROOK – "Help Fallbrook residents fight Climate Change" is the resolution made by the members of Save Our Forest, a Fallbrook Land Conservancy committee, to answer a worldwide concern. It will be the focus of SOF partnering with Fallbrook Climate Action Team working together now through April to offer each resident the opportunity to help the cause.
Plants and trees, especially because of their size, are the workhorses of the environment supplying essential oxygen for a healthy environment. They clear the atmosphere of the pollutants that we create every day. As traffic in this small community grows residents must act to offset the emissions that this brings.
The Cut the Carbon program again offers an answer to the question, "what can I do as an individual to help the environment and do it right?" The answer is "plant the right tree in the right place," a valuable phrase in the Urban Forestry industry. It means choosing a tree based on height and width limitations at each proposed location to cut down on pruning requirements in the future. Other money saving measures are reducing heating and cooling costs with proper placement, and choosing trees that are more drought tolerant.
Information to make the right choice for one's location is part of the program. A free tree and all that information is offered with a home visit, a list of recommended trees for one's locale, and how to plant information, in exchange for a Fallbrook Land Conservancy membership. Participants will learn about the various preserves open to the public, and activities of the FLC committees with a monthly newsletter. It is an amazing organization making Fallbrook's nature preserves a destination in San Diego County and adjacent communities.
