Trees are one of the best ways to improve local water quality. They filter and absorb polluted runoff, stabilize streambanks, improve soil quality, and cleanse drinking water sources.
And with the Keystone Tree Fund, Pennsylvanians can choose to join the effort to plant more trees throughout the Commonwealth.
The Keystone Tree Fund bills, currently in the state House and Senate, would create a voluntary $3 check-off box on Pennsylvania's driver's license and vehicle registration applications that would buy, plant, and maintain more trees across the Commonwealth.
With more than 19,000 miles of impaired waters, Pennsylvania must do more to protect and restore rivers and streams. Our health and economic welfare depend on it.
Take action now to tell your state senator and representative to support the Keystone Tree Fund bills, Senate Bill 1208 and House Bill 2486, and send a clear message that clean water counts in Pennsylvania.
Your voice will have the greatest impact if you write to your representatives in your own words, describing the value of trees and clean water in your community. We have drafted a sample letter for you to get started.
