Preserving heritage trees downtown a priority

Updated: Jul 13, 2022

Letter to the SC Sentinel, 2/27/2022

... It was once thought that older trees were not so good at carbon sequestration as young trees, but later research showed this is incorrect. It is older, larger trees that do the better job because of lateral (secondary) growth. That’s another important reason we can’t afford to lose our heritage trees.

To be acceptable, any design for the library mixed-use project needs to preserve our trees.
