Each spring, ACTrees members “storm the Hill” in Washington, DC to meet with Members of Congress. The event includes Congressional briefings to educate elected officials and staff about the value of trees and urban forests. It’s also an opportunity to ensure that pending legislation or emerging legislative issues align with ACTrees mission.
ACTrees promotes domestic public policy that builds greener cities through trees and innovative green space development. Investment in urban forests results in long-term economic and health benefits for communities nationwide. Carry the message to your Members of Congress.
