Let’s celebrate trees this Arbor Day. Trees do so much for us. They provide shade, reduce energy costs and increase our property values. Along our streets, they reduce storm water runoff that can carry pollutants to our waterways. Throughout our communities, they improve the mental and respiratory health, break up heat islands, create jobs and boost the economy.
In forests, they restore critical wildlife habitat, provide opportunities for recreation and maintain healthy watersheds to protect drinking water resources. And no matter where they’re planted, trees are working hard to combat climate change, clean the air and shield us from ultra-violet rays. Trees filter pollutants out of our air and water. They absorb CO2, removing and storing the carbon while releasing oxygen back into the air. Trees provide food for humans, birds and wildlife, alike. One apple tree can provide 15 to 20 bushels of fruit a year.
Trees provide immeasurable beauty and serenity that feed the human soul. At times, they can take our breath away. This Friday, April 28th, is Arbor Day. Take notice. Observe. Celebrate and be grateful for the trees around you. TreeZero invites you to plant a tree and make a positive impact in your community.
