Trees and green spaces are beneficial to human beings for many reasons. In populated areas they keep towns cool, provide animal habitat, help soil retention, water management and clean our air.
At present there are a lot of new buildings going up in Coupeville. Seeing so many trees and green spaces coming down for housing has made me wonder about a few things.
Is there a plan for how much greenspace will be left in town limits? Do we as a community want to invest in preserving some of the trees and natural areas? What are the possible ways we could do this ?
As our population increases, I hope we can keep a balance in our town and on our Historic Reserve.
