Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Tom Hylton is the author of SAVE OUR LAND, SAVE OUR TOWNS, a lavishly illustrated book about Pennsylvania communities and how we can save them. Trees Inc., a nonprofit corporation conceived and organized by Hylton raised nearly $500,000 to plant and maintain street trees in Pottstown. You may have seen his video SAVING PENNSYLVANIA aired on WHYY-TV.

As one of Pennsylvania’s most fiercely passionate speakers on behalf of communities and quality of life, he will present a slide show on the benefits of trees in communities.

In SAVE OUR LAND Hylton writes:
“No single element will do more to improve our communities than planting a lot of shade trees.”
