Itís Tree Planting Time

Now is a great time to plant trees. They will soon stop growing and spend the winter building root systems that will give you maximum growth in the spring.

Trees are extremely valuable, especially in urban and suburban areas. They improve water quality by acting as natural filters and reducing stormwater runoff, flooding and erosion. They also improve air quality, reducing dust, ozone, nitrogen oxide, ammonia and sulfur dioxides. Of course, their major value is serving as carbon sinks, taking in carbon dioxide and producing oxygen (40 trees remove 80 pounds of air pollutants annually)!

Trees cool the air naturally from the effects of water evaporating from leaves and by producing shade (four trees planted around each house could save up to 30% on cooling costs). All this in addition to providing valuable wildlife habitat and to the fact they just look good!

One of our employees has put together a great file on trees including information on growth habits (including height, width, life span, etc.), habitat value for the birds, bees, butterflies and hummingbirds and pictures of the mature species with leaf description.
