Welcome to Planting Ahead. 

The name Planting Ahead stuck with me when I'd been thinking about the Akwesasne Task Force on the Environment, a cooperation among three Mohawk Nations. They plant black ash trees in diverse locations to preserve the tree species from the invasion of the Emerald Ash Borer and from the northward advance of climate change.  The Mohawks on the ATFE are certainly not in denial about the dangers, and they aren't waiting for a external policy shift to fix things. I admire their presence of mind.
