Why Trees are so great!

To follow up on the National Arbor Day post, I want to share

8 Reasons why city trees are so great

1. Trees provide shade on a hot, sunny day.

2. Trees provide our wildlife neighbors with homes, food, and hiding places which makes bird watching easier.

3. Can lower our utility bills because they block the sun and wind, therefore we need to burn less energy to keep our homes comfortable.

4. The roots of trees stabilize the soil and dirt to help reduce erosion from wind and rain.

5. Trees bring forth beautiful and fragrant flowers in the spring.

6. Some trees bear delicious fruit and nuts - for free.

7. Trees help bring up the property value of your home.

8. Trees make your neighborhood look beautiful and inviting.
