Welcome to Trees Work

Trees work for our well-being just as much as they work for wildlife, and they make our lives better every day. That’s why the Missouri Department of Conservation created the Trees Work educational campaign to increase awareness on the tangible benefits trees provide – for our health, our families, our wallets and more.

The Trees Work campaign helps Missourians discover all the ways trees and forests are working for us. It also provides information about how you can promote good forest management, no matter the size of your property. Remember – if you care for the trees around you, those trees will work for you.

Browse through this site and you can find out how trees improve your child’s ability to learn, keep your water clean, raise the value of your property, and more.
