GREEN SPACE = MONEY. FOR EVERYBODY.
It's simple. Forests + green space = money for KC's Northland. Not only do urban forests, parks and green spaces contribute to higher property values, but green space also helps take care of a community: improving air quality, flood management and more.
Small swaths of trees aren't enough; we need to protect the large, contiguous green spaces that help our community.
What else? Green space contributes to the wellbeing of a community, improves quality of life and makes it a more desirable place to be: not just for businesses, but homeowners, renters and everybody.
