Sustainable Stow talk focuses on how trees protect climate

This month’s talk from Sustainable Stow and the Randall Library focuses on the role trees play in drawing down carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. It takes place Wednesday, March 16 at 7 p.m. on Zoom. Register in advance at

The speaker is Glen Ayers, a soil scientist and long-time advocate for forests. Glen will explain the important role that trees can play in addressing climate change. New research on forests and climate shows how the old trees in our yards and conservation areas can really make a difference. The state’s new 2050 Roadmap even looks to forests as a key means of getting the Commonwealth to net zero.

Also, if you missed the last Sustainable Stow talk on “Current Living: No Gas, Less Noise, Better Health,” you can tune in on Stow TV’s YouTube channel at Learn about electrifying your home, from cooktops to lawn mowers. As a follow-up to last month’s session, the Randall Library can now loan you an induction cooktop to try out at home!
