In a remarkable environmental initiative, 10 Bay Area cities – including Pittsburg – are embarking on a journey to both address inequity and combat climate change by planting hundreds of new trees, focusing on underserved areas. These cities have been “awarded federal grants to plant, maintain and restore trees under a $1 billion program paid for by the U.S. Inflation Reduction Act,” according to the East Bay Times.
This project aims to revitalize urban landscapes while also addressing climate change. Trees play a crucial role in sequestering carbon dioxide and this program represents significant steps towards a greener, more sustainable future.
