Development and cultural practices have prevented natural regeneration of trees along the banks of the river. Planting trees in key areas along the Red will create a buffer to maintain river bank stability, encourage the growth of native plants, improve water quality, and provide habitat for river wildlife. Trees reduce air pollution, cool the atmosphere, prevent soil erosion ease the severity of floods and decreate maintenance costs of roads and parking areas.
