The barrier islands are now planting trees to store carbon dioxi

Court House - The barrier islands are now planting trees to store carbon dioxide so they don't drown. Meanwhile, the mainland has increased cutting trees for stores, parking lots, homes, and roads that create a lot more carbon dioxide. Also, these cause more toxic chemicals, fertilizers and heavy metals to run off into our waters. Soon we might be like the Gulf Coast sea life, gasping for oxygen and drowning too. According to a local forester, Jackson Twp. has a good tree ordinance. Perhaps this knowledge can trickle down here, and show that tree ratables will pay a higher compound interest for our children.
