More Trees, Please!

More Trees, Please!

Trees play a vital role in our everyday lives. They improve the quality of the air we breathe and the water we drink. They beautify our community and neighborhood streets and shade our nation's children and grandchildren. Trees are an integral part of our lives.

Because trees are so awesome for the many benefits they provide, initiatives such as the Community Tree Recovery Program, a systematic response to disasters in communities nationwide, exist. National organizations have realized trees improve and revitalize communities in so many ways, particularly in areas suffering the aftermath of natural disasters, and several planting programs have sprouted and flourished ever since.

But trees are also valuable to communities, parks and landscapes that have been fortunate to avoid the path of severe weather and strong, devastating storms. There are many great locations in which you can plant new trees, even in your own backyard!

Planting trees can TREEmendously benefit the community.

This Friday's National Arbor Day celebration is on our mind, so we've got three of the best spots to plant an awesome tree:

  1. Within your landscape. You'll feel the difference!
  2. On the edge. Tune in! Trees planted along the edge of your property may help reduce noise pollution from busy streets and highways. (Just be aware of surrounding power lines overhead!)
  3. In town. Because healthy trees = a healthy community.

Davey participates in Arbor Day events all over the country every year. And, if you're looking for tree services to help maintain your new trees, we're here for you! Contact your local professionally trained arborist for a free consultation today!

In the spirit of giving, Davey provided a donation to the Arbor Day Foundation's Community Tree Recovery Program in December 2013.

    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!)

  • The Tale of a "Grand" Canyon Live Oak Tree

    California is no stranger to big trees.

    In the land where robust coast redwoods and giant sequoias tower over the earth, another kind of big tree makes an appearance. The national champion canyon live oak tree--also the largest of all oaks listed on the National Register of Big Trees--stands 97 feet tall, spreading 98 feet across.

    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.
