“Many of our nation’s headwaters begin in forested lands. So when it comes to clean water, the first line of defense starts with mature and old growth forests. Preserving old growth trees coincides with improving water quality. The roots slow rainfall and prevent erosion and large sediment deposits, while the canopy provides necessary shade during an ever-present climate crisis. Mature trees provide the necessary habitat, cooling, and filtration needed to protect our rivers.”
