“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.
