    There are many reasons to appreciate trees, not the least of which is they are great for the environment.  Without trees, we couldn’t live on planet earth.

    • Trees renew our air supply by absorbing carbon dioxide and producing oxygen.
    • The amount of oxygen produced by an acre of trees per year equals the amount consumed by 18 people annually. One tree produces nearly 260 pounds of oxygen each year.
    • One acre of trees removes up to 2.6 tons of carbon dioxide each year.
    • Shade trees can make buildings up to 20 degrees cooler in the summer.
    • Trees lower air temperature by evaporating water in their leaves.
    • Tree roots stabilize soil and prevent erosion.
    • Trees improve water quality by slowing and filtering rain water, as well as protecting aquifers and watersheds.
    • The cottonwood tree seed is the seed that stays in flight the longest. The tiny seed is surrounded by ultra-light, white fluff hairs that can carry it on the air for several days.
