Plant Trees In Wisconsin
Why Plant in Wisconsin?
Wisconsin’s Northwoods encompasses an area of approximately 75,000 square kilometers of forests, woods, lakes, wetlands, and bogs—all at risk because of climate change.
- Wisconsin’s temperature has risen by an average of 1.1°F since 1950. It will increase by another 3°F to 9°F over the next 50 years, and 5°F to 13°F by the end of this century.
- Since more than 44% of land in Wisconsin is devoted to agriculture, the temperature and precipitation changes projected have potentially profound implications for the state economy.
