The outdoors is where we go to escape when city life gets to be too much. Even just a walk through your local park or down the block can be rejuvenating, especially wandering in and amongst the trees. Trees are our ticket to a healthier environment, and it’s becoming increasingly important for us to take proper care of these beautiful giants. There are dozens of ways trees help balance and maintain a healthy earth, but here are just a few examples.
We learn in elementary that trees are essential to our way of life. Not only do they reduce the CO2 levels in the air, but they give back in the form of one of life’s most essential ingredients—oxygen. In one year, an acre of mature, healthy trees can produce enough oxygen to sustain 18 people! Not only do trees save our lungs, but that can save our energy bills as well. A tree-lined street is much cooler than a street without, and this can cut costs for air conditioning in the summer. Trees also help with soil erosion through their extensive root systems and they provide a canopy for critters to make homes.
It’s apparent that trees are an important part of our ecosystem. So what can we do to take care of them? First and foremost, we need to keep them healthy. Here at One Man and a Lady Bug, we provide tree spraying that protects your trees from pests and disease. All of our treatments are environmentally friendly because we believe in a healthy earth too! If you suspect your trees may be at risk, give us a call and we can help you deduce the best action to take.
With Earth Day just around the corner, we are also offering an Earth Day Special to help your trees be in their best shape before summer! Give us a call at 403.262.1666 for all the details!
