Many people came to the Historic Barns Park at the Grand Traverse Commons to plant trees at Replant TC: Putting Down Roots. Archangel Ancient Tree Archive donated 700 trees to the community to replant after a devastating storm in August felled thousands of trees in the region.
Archangel’s David Milarch was on hand to talk about the importance of trees.
[pl_blockquote cite=”David Milarch, Co-Founder, Archangel Ancient Tree Archive”]”Trees are not just a commodity – 2×4’s and firewood – they’re the lungs of the planet and filter system of our water and air. Our survival, and the survival of every living thing, depends on a healthy ecosystem, and the mainstay of a healthy ecosystem is trees.”[/pl_blockquote]
