With stories of environmental ruin in the news feed, perhaps you’re wondering what can be done? Here’s one perspective on — if not a solution — a step in a better direction: plant more trees.

Heather Alberro writing for Fast Company makes the argument for planting more trees. And she’s not alone in her thinking; the team at StrongTowns.org has been writing about the magic of trees and their effects on communities for years.

As you consider Minot’s future, what roles doe trees play? Are they are part of your vision? If they are, did you put them there intentionally, or did they show up in your mental picture as sort of an extra you forgot to acknowledge.
