SOUL is committed to strategically reforesting New Orleans one neighborhood at a time. Did you know that we are the most deforested city in the US? This matters! A healthy urban forest is critical to our ability to absorb stormwater, mitigate air, water and soil pollution, halt subsidence, cool our air temperatures, and lower our electricity bills. Trees also protect us from harmful UV rays, lower crime and create a more inviting atmosphere for exercising and engaging with neighbors. The benefits of an urban canopy are endless. SOUL intends to reforest New Orleans beginning with Mid-City, Algiers Point and Broadmoor. Join us!
