@ from @ - The best time to plant a tree is now!
Here’s how trees make a difference:
✅Trees improve air quality by producing oxygen. They also store carbon, offsetting harmful byproducts of fossil-fuel burning.
✅They moderate the effects of sun and wind, and they clean the air by trapping dust, pollen and other pollutants.
✅Planted in the right places around buildings, trees can significantly reduce air-conditioning costs. This means less Freon, an inflammable and odorless chemical emitted from air conditioners. It is considered to have damaging effects to the ozone layer.
✅Trees increase property value.
✅Trees generate jobs and contribute raw materials for buildings, newspapers, books, etc. They are renewable, biodegradable and recyclable.
✅They provide shelter and food for wildlife such as birds, squirrels and bugs.
✅Trees make people feel good. Workers are more productive when they see trees along their commute routes and from their office windows.
✅Landscapes that include trees help relax us, lower heart rates and reduce stress.
