Forest in the Desert Project

“ What we are doing to the forests of the world is but a mirror reflection of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another.” 

Mahatma Gandhi

Trees Help Fight Climate Change

Trees grow, they help stop climate change by removing carbon dioxide from the air, storing carbon in the trees and soil, and releasing oxygen into the atmosphere.

Trees provide many benefits to us, every day.
Planting trees in your neighborhood really is one of the best things you can do for the local environment and for the planet. It’s no secret that trees help the environment, but you may be surprised by all the benefits that planting trees can provide. Besides producing oxygen and removing carbon dioxide and contaminants from the air, trees have many other social, economic, and environmental benefits.

Trees also absorb sound and reduce noise pollution. This is especially important for people who live near freeways.

Additionally, trees shade asphalt and trees, reducing what is know as the “Heat Island” effect. The EPA has some great information on how planting trees and other vegetation can help to reduce the urban heat island effect.

To do what we can to help, Liberty Park Charities is planting a forest in the desert on 50 acres of property in Gila Bend, Arizona.
