WHY PLANT A TREE

Started in 1970, this designated day of April 22 has become an annual reminder of our responsibility to be good stewards of the Earth. You can contribute to a healthier Earth in multiple ways: plant a garden, pick up trash, purchase biodegradable products, and commit to reduce, reuse and recycle.  

 

Here’s how trees make a difference:

  • Trees improve air quality by producing oxygen. In one year an acre of mature trees can provide enough oxygen for 18 people!. They also store carbon, offsetting harmful byproducts of fossil-fuel burning.
  • In one year, an acre of mature trees absorbs the same amount of CO2 produced when you drive your car 26,000 miles, that's an amazing statistic!
  • They moderate the effects of sun and wind, and they clean the air by trapping dust, pollen and other pollutants (nitrogen oxides, ammonia, sulfur dioxide and ozone) and filter particulates out of the air by trapping them on their leaves and bark.
  • Planted in the right places around buildings, trees can significantly reduce air-conditioning costs. Three trees placed strategically around a single-family home can cut summer air conditioning needs by up to 50%. By reducing the energy demand for cooling our houses, we reduce carbon dioxide and other pollution emissions from power plants. Average temperatures in, for example, Los Angeles have risen 6°F in the last 50 years as tree coverage has declined and the number of heat-absorbing roads and buildings has increased.  Trees cool the city by up to 10°F, by shading homes and streets, breaking up urban “heat islands” and releasing water. 
  • Shade from trees slows water evaporation from thirsty lawns. Most newly planted trees need only fifteen gallons of water a week. As trees transpire, they increase atmospheric moisture.
  • Trees reduce runoff by breaking rainfall thus allowing the water to flow down the trunk and into the earth below the tree. This prevents stormwater from carrying pollutants to the ocean. When mulched, trees act like a sponge that filters this water naturally and uses it to recharge groundwater supplies.
  • Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. Trees reduce UV-B exposure by about 50 percent, thus providing protection to children on school campuses and playgrounds - where children spend hours outdoors.
  • An apple tree can yield up to 15-20 bushels of fruit per year and can be planted on the tiniest urban lot. Aside from fruit for humans, trees provide food for birds and wildlife.
  • Trees increase property value.
  • Trees generate jobs and contribute raw materials for buildings, newspapers, books, etc. They are renewable, biodegradable and recyclable.
  • They provide shelter and food for wildlife such as birds, squirrels and bugs.
  • Trees make people feel good. Workers are more productive when they see trees along their commute routes and from their office windows. 
  • Whether as houses for children or creative and spiritual inspiration for adults, trees have provided the space for human retreat throughout the ages.
  • Landscapes that include trees help relax us, lower heart rates and reduce stress.Studies have shown that patients with views of trees out their windows heal faster and with less complications. Children with ADHD show fewer symptoms when they have access to nature.  Exposure to trees and nature aids concentration by reducing mental fatigue.
  • Tree plantings provide an opportunity for community involvement and empowerment that improves the quality of life in our neighborhoods. All cultures, ages, and genders have an important role to play at a tree planting or tree care event.

VIGORO on Agricola will be open Monday to Saturday 8am-5.30pm and on Sunday 11am-5pm.
