Trees contribute to the beauty and character of the local landscape. Trees shape the perception and feelings about outdoor areas by framing buildings and enhancing open spaces.
Trees benefit other living things.
Trees are a critical component of numerous ecosystems and provide habitats for songbirds, small forest animals, wildflowers, and smaller understory trees. Large trees allow other plants and animals to thrive.
Trees add value.
Trees add value to our everyday life. They shade our walks and our parked cars. They provide cover for our gardens and backyard activities and enhance parks and open spaces.
Trees provide benefits beyond beauty.
Collectively trees can transform a harsh city street into a more natural environment, adding beauty and life all while cleansing the air we breathe. In an urban setting, trees not only soften aesthetically, but ease harsh environmental conditions as well.
They are beautiful in their peace, they are wise in their silence. They will stand after we are dust. They teach us, and we tend them.
