Welcome to Forest Web of Cottage Grove…
Forests precede civilizations and deserts follow them... This simple quotation lives at the heart of Forest Web. If we want to change this sad truth, we need to change the concepts of how we relate to the natural world on which all of us depend.
Root systems may occupy an area four to seven times the surface area
occupied by the crown of the tree. Not only do these roots provide
nutrients to the tree and prevent soil erosion, they also play host to a
variety of fungi, or Mycorrhizae, forming a symbiotic relationship.
These fungi receive sustenance from the tree and, in turn, increase
the efficiency of the tree’s root system, creating a web throughout a
Forest Web of Cottage Grove applies this lesson from Nature to our
organization, working with a variety of environmental groups,
co-hosting events and hikes, collaborating on lobbying efforts and
comment campaigns, and sharing information and support to nurture
all our common goals.
And, to continue building this network, we operate an ever-growing email list, a Facebook page, Youtube Channel, and this website to activate, educate and inform. To receive updates, action alerts, and event notices, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
