Everyone should care for trees. Without them, we basically die. hey are alive, and deserve our respect. I grow Giant Sequoias on the East Coast. Its an amazing tree. Did you know that when they are planted close together, and they have trouble finding enough nutrients, their roots join together, and they actually s nutrients. Humans could learn a lot from this. Considering that its 2013, and world hunger still exists. Pretty pathetic if you ask me.

Thank you Cher. Lucas shares my sentiments! Fortunately for me the HOA takes excellent care of our trees so I don't need to worry. Now i'm feeling so much better I am focusing ALL my time once again in the Farm!

Trees do so much for us ~ please thank them with proper care. It's critically important to their health and it's the only way you'll have those beautiful, stately specimens gracing your lawn.
When the house we bought was built the land was completely clear-cut. We now have dozens of trees, reclaimed an old apple orchard, and we're State Stewards for the surrounding forest.

I have 8 arborvite(?) trees that I planted when they were 2ft. tall. Yoday, they are over 20 feet. I tend them like my vegetable garden.

My ex was a person who would have been perfectly happy to survey concrete and parking lots all over the place. It was so nice to finally be free of that mentality and be able to begin planting the pecans, mulberries and river birches that surround the farm now! And the increase in wildlife from seed & fruit-producing trees is amazing.

This is something to make all people aware of. Even small trees and bushes make a difference. Let's start small and see how this impacts those who doubt the benefits.
