Grow Trees–why are trees so great?

Are you ready for more information about trees, after a quick peek at a Facebook or Instagram post? Trees are amazing big organisms, and they enrich our lives in many ways.

  • Climate action, urban cooling, energy reduction
  • Healthy neighborhoods, active living
  • Tree canopy, shade, and cool places during heat events

Are you ready to grow a tree in your front- or back-yard? Purchase small and medium trees from Walter Andersen Nursery in Old Town. Choose from six species in 5-gallon sizes for about $50. More information and list of current inventory.

Right away you’ll have more nature in your daily life. In five years, you’ll know the tree is successfully established. In ten years, you can sit under its shade. And in twenty years it will be a family or neighborhood legacy tree.  When you get a tree, follow these steps to grow a healthy tree!

Give a shade, native or fruit tree, as an eco-friendly gift instead of adding more “stuff” to the world. Donate $50 so someone else can get and grow a tree, but just can’t afford to purchase it. And most important, protect the trees that already bring us shade, nearby nature, and simple pleasures.
