John Denver sang “Plant a tree for your tomorrow, it’s your tree that clears the air”. His song really explains the significance trees hold in our world. Trees contribute to our lives in many ways but they filter the air we breathe. National Arbor Day is April 26th. Arbor Day is a national holiday that recognizes and celebrates the act of Planting Trees. In recognition of this holiday, we want to celebrate all the ways trees contribute to our world and lives.
Benefits Of Planting Trees
Planting trees is beneficial to the environment, in the air we breathe, our outdoor activities, and even increases the value in your property. Trees have a special place in nature and act defensively against harmful toxins in the air. They truly are an incredible plant species. Preserving and caring for trees will ensure they keep optimal health and continue to grow for many years.
Help The Environment
Trees help the environment in numerous ways. They absorb odors and pollutant gases and then trap them in their trees and bark. This makes trees our natural air filters by helping to eliminate carbon dioxide. Did you know that in one year one acre of trees can provide enough oxygen for almost twenty people? They not only provide us oxygen but they clean and filter our air. We should love and appreciate these wonderful parts of nature.
Planting trees around your home will allow you to conserve energy in the heat of summer and can even save you up to fifty percent of air conditioning usage. Which in turn, helps the environment.
Protection From The Sun
Everyone can appreciate the shade a tree provides on a hot summer day. Trees offer natural UV protection from the sun’s harmful rays. The coolness of the grass underneath a tree on a sweltering day is one of life’s greatest pleasures.
Increase Your Property Value
Trees give curb appeal but also add cash value to your property. Locally grown, healthy, mature trees can add tens of thousands of dollars to your property value.
