The Survivor Tree at the Oklahoma City National Memorial
“The best time to plant a tree was 20-years ago.”
Trees provide for us from the moment we open our eyes to the
world, to the time we close them. They give us a challenging climb as
children, a place to build our first house (the tree house of course),
and thus a space to dream. Trees give us hope and symbolize survival
even in the bleakest of situations. Trees provide shade for the weary
and healing for the sick.
In this section, you can further explore the benefits of trees.
Also, we give you simple instructions on how to plant a tree, the
critical importance of maintenance (with instructions) - and tactics
for proper preservation. Finally, you will find information about how
your city can become a Tree City USA, a designation from the National
Arbor Day Foundation that offers even more benefits for your community.
