The Top 3 Reasons to Love Your Trees

The Top 3 Reasons to Love Your Trees

There are 35 days left until the first day of spring. But who's counting?

Thick snowflakes cover roadways as freezing rain pelts tall, wide snowdrifts scattered across parking lots and driveways. Meanwhile, subzero temperatures have introduced even the nation's southernmost dwellers to the feeling of comfort beneath a warm and fuzzy winter coat.

Trees can make you happy all year long.

Lately, several regions of the U.S. and Canada have encountered the worst winter weather they've seen in years. From ice storms to polar freezes and heavy snow accumulation, we've seen nearly all winter has to offer within the course of two months.

Whether there's more to arrive before the spring season breaks, the light at the end of the tunnel may still appear pretty dim.

What better time to do something that warms the heart? Highlight your love and affection for your trees, and the reasons they make you happy during all four seasons! Need some inspiration to start planning for the growing season ahead? We've got the top 3 tree benefits listed right here:

  1. Trees improve the environment. From their abilities to deflect harsh winds and absorb rainfall, improve air quality and reduce noise pollution, trees boast several superpowers that benefit the environment-and those who call it home.
  2. Trees save you money. If trees surround your home, you're in good company. They not only reduce heating and air cooling costs when strategically placed around your home, but they also increase property values at maturity.
  3. Trees make you feel good. Sit in the shade, take a walk in the park or explore the canopy of your urban forest, and you'll stress less. Now that's TREEmendous!

    We challenge you to become more acquainted with Mother Nature.

    Sounds simple, right? You've greeted the sun's rays time and time again because its warmth brings a smile to your face. Lush green grasses greet your feet as you tiptoe through the lawn on a pleasant summer afternoon. And now, you look forward to hearing the birds singing through your open bedroom window to awake you each morning.

    But after the weather some of us have experienced so far this year, the opportunity to even see sunshine or walk outside without a jacket on any given day is something to be excited about. Just think: Wouldn't it be nice to be warm, dry and outside, all at the same time? (We can assume many of you know how we feel!)

    Assuming this particular canyon live oak, located in Glen Oak, Calif., was the largest of any discovered oak species in the U.S., seven Wildlands Conservancy members photographed and measured the tree in 2012. This resulted in the tree's appearance in the National Register of Big Trees--now comprising 768 champions and sponsored by The Davey Tree Expert Company.
