About us - WHY YOU SHOULD BUY A TREE
We are a small family farm located in Missouri that sells and ships a wide variety of trees across the United States. We have combined our passion for trees and plants with wanting to make our contribution to nature.Thinking of what to do to help the planet, we came up with a way not only to be able to contribute our grain of sand but also that more people could do it. That is why we created this website with the intention that we could all do something about it. There is no doubt that having trees is good for everyone without exception, because the benefits they bring go beyond helping the environment. This is why we want to share with you some reasons to buy a tree, so that you motivate yourself to plant one right now!
HELP BATTLE CLIMATE CHANGE
Have you been thinking how could you decrease the carbon footprint we let as to help fight climate change? Then, we have the answer. Planting a tree is the best option, not only because they don`t need too much care and due to that they are really cheap, but also because they take the hurtful carbon from the air and turn it into the so valued oxygen. Many of us don’t believe climate change is as big of a deal as some claim, however I think we can all agree it does exist to some extent. Planting a tree or other plants is great for our environment.
THEY COOL THE WEATHER
Tired of the heat? Maybe it is because there are not so many trees in your area. The trees help reduce heat because their shade helps keep the streets cool, but it is also due to the fact that the leaves carry out a process called evapotranspiration, in which water vapor is released that cools and moistens the environment. Who doesn’t love a good shade tree in the middle of summer?
Trees absorb the very polluting carbon dioxide that we dispose of to clean the environment and they convert it into pure oxygen that we breathe.
THEY GIVE MORE VALUE TO YOUR PROPERTY
That's right, believe it or not, as a tree grows, so does the property value. If a property in a residential area has a tree, it can revalue it by up to 15%. This is an additional attraction, and trees make the house and its garden more beautiful.
PROTECT FROM NOISE
Trees, especially when planted in large numbers, are capable of acting as a barrier that works as an insulator of the noise produced by the streets and highways. Evergreens are typically used for this! Arborvitae, spruce, cedar, pine, holly & so on
It is scientifically proven that living near green areas significantly reduces people's stress and anxiety levels.
If you want to cover the view of the neighbors or whoever may be passing in front of your house, then a large tree may be your best option, as they are a nice and efficient way to hide the view of the neighbor. Making a privacy screen from plants is awesome!
IT IS A WAY TO MAKE YOUR CHILDREN AWARE OF THE PLANET
If you want to teach your children the importance of caring for the planet, then having a family tree at home is the perfect option to start. Promoting family participation in caring for a tree is an excellent way to unite the family and teach them the value of respect for nature.
THEY ATTRACT BIRDS AND POLLINATORS
Trees provide natural nesting places, and shelter for birds and other living creatures.
