The Importance of Plants

Plants DO clean stormwater runoff, as shown recently in a new report from the U.S. Geologic Survey of a study in Rapid City SD from 2008-2014.  Vegetated channels cut the average levels of suspended sediment by half, and nutrient levels by one third.  (http://pubs.usgs.gov/sir/2015/5069/)

 

Quote of the Month: 

Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.”  Abraham Lincoln
