The Problem

We read the book "The Boy Who Grew a Forest" by Sophia Gholz for homeschool. We learned that trees provide us with so much, but trees are quickly vanishing from our communities.

Our Plan

As a family we will plant a tree in our backyard. We decided to get a Camelia and Firebush since they can also benefit local animals. We also made a donation to to plant trees in places that need more trees.
