Since 1991 Council Bluffs Trees Forever has made our city a better place to live, work and play! Trees add value to our lives, they provide us cleaner air and increased energy efficiency. The presence of trees in urban areas has been linked to reduced crime, increased revenue, higher property values and more efficient storm water management. Trees are a valuable asset to our community plus trees and green space restore us emotionally and spiritually and do it "naturally". Together we grow!
