Sign up to learn about Rochester's trees by texting with reporter Justin Murphy

Want to tell me about a tree you love? Want to know how to get one planted − or why there's not one there already?  Then join the Democrat and Chronicle's new Urban Tree Canopy text messaging group. 

Research shows that living near trees brings important health and community benefits:

  • Cleaner and cooler air
  • Better mental health
  • Higher property values
  • Less crime
