Trees don’t send you thoughtful cards, fluffy stuffed bears or heart-shaped chocolates.
But one thing is for certain: Trees give us countless benefits as they grow, asking for little in return. Take a moment on this lovely holiday to look up and thank the friends that have benefited your life for so many years—your trees.
Trees are humble creatures, giving back day after day,
Like shaded spots in summer, where day-dreamers lay.
They provide us with fresh oxygen so our lungs stay sound
And protect us from rain when the thunder bolts pound.
Within a playground for children to laugh and play,
Standing tall and strong in their spot, trees stay.
They’re old friends we can count on for so many years
To help shelter us from all outdoor fears.
The tree: a comforting place animals call their home,
But also a checkpoint for hikers who roam.
It’s a prominent feature for any city landscape,
From small to big, varying in size and shape.
Adding a breath of fresh air to any backyard,
Trees provide peace and safety as they stand on guard;
From the roots to the towering, lush canopy,
We share our love to each and every tree, happily.
We wish you a Happy Valentine's Day! If you need help addressing the care or maintenance of a tree in your extended tree family this spring,contact your local, professionally trained Davey arborist for a free consultation.
