advice from a tree

go out on a limb,
branch out,
and welcome pruning,
Trees' branches can become dull, broken or diseased.
If trees are well-maintained through regular pruning and trimming, they can function better and give back more to people and the environment.
maintain silence
Trees muffle urban noise almost as effectively as stone walls,
and they are much more inviting and beautiful!
remember your roots
Roots obtain water, oxygen and minerals from soil.
They do not grow toward anything or in any particular direction.
To avoid root disease, trees must maintain a healthy, vigorous environment around them.
help others breathe
A mature, healthy, leafy tree produces as much oxygen in a season as 10 people inhale in a year.
drink plenty of water
Trees need water to nourish themselves and allow their roots to grow stronger.
keep others from drowning
Flash flooding can be dramatically reduced by a forest or by planting trees.
be content with your natural beauty
Real estate values increase when trees beautify a neighborhood.
sway with the wind
Wind can alter plant growth and cause extensive, irreversible damage.
A tree’s ability to sway, and the frequency with which it sways, reduces damage to its limbs, trunk and roots.
enjoy the view.
