Trees of Life

Albuquerque Journal - Parade - - PICKS -

Cel­e­brate Earth Day (April 22) and Ar­bor Day (April 29) by putting down roots—lit­er­ally. Three rea­sons to plant a tree to­day:

1. They fight global warm­ing

Trees take car­bon diox­ide from the air and re­duce the need for heat­ing and air-con­di­tion­ing (both sources of car­bon monox­ide).

2. They make your home more valu­able

A yard with trees can in­crease home value by 15 per­cent or more.

3. The birds will love you

with bird­song? Who doesn’t want to be ser­e­naded

Trees are a so­lu­tion to many of the global is­sues we face to­day, im­prov­ing air qual­ity and wa­ter qual­ity and help­ing mit­i­gate cli­mate change, de­for­esta­tion, poverty and hunger. —Dan Lambe, pres­i­dent of the Ar­bor Day Foun­da­tion
