Trees and other plants provide many important functions. Trees create habitat for wildlife, improve air quality, hold carbon, filter runoff, slow soil erosion, and aid in the recharge of groundwater. Quinte Conservation supports landowner tree planting efforts through advice, landowner grants, and subsidized planting programs.
