“For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider, every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver.” - Martin Luther King Jr.
While MCA and the whole MoCo Forest Coalition were disappointed to not have stronger protections in place in 2022, having the new Council enact strong protections as one of their first actions in office sends a strong message about the importance of forests in the County.
In the last decade, MoCo lost 4000 acres of forests - the second highest rate of loss in the state.
Please take two minutes to let the Council know that forests, particularly existing forests, matter in MoCo before they hold a haring on February 7th.
