Plant a Tree

Driving around town, it fascinates me to see which areas have trees. It seems that more prosperous areas have more and bigger trees. In the summer, driving under a canopy of trees is so much cooler – and more beautiful – than in a tree desert.

Commitment and care are necessary to  have trees in our neighborhoods. (I feel sad when people tell me they don’t want to bother.)

Did you know …

  • Trees benefit us psychologically and physically. As the largest living being, they are essential for a healthy environment.
  • The Heartland Tree Alliance will plant a tree free of charge. Trees are also available from Arbor Day Foundation for a minimal donation.
  • Trees can increase the value of your property up to 20%!

To see more of the benefits trees provide us, check out this page on the Heartland Tree Alliance site.

Please plant a tree.
