Terrebonne Parish is pleased to announce a cooperative effort to plant fruit trees on properties mitigated by the Parish. Area nonprofits are planting several types of fruit trees on properties purchased with mitigation funds. All of these properties can only be used for open space uses. Trees can provide not only fruit for the residents, but additional flood control by sequestering rainfall. Please see below and attached for the sites currently identified. The neighbors will receive notification of the plantings to invite them to participate. This serves a dual purpose of informing them of the activity so that noone will be alarmed.
A 2015 FloodSafe Minute introduced the National Tree Benefit Calculator that allows anyone to enter a tree type and size to see the water uptake of the individual tree as well as the estimated financial benefit and added property value. Go to >http://treebenefits.com/calculator/ to check it out.
