Celebrating Arbor Day

Every year, on the last Friday of April, the United States observes Arbor Day, a national holiday dedicated to the importance of trees. At Earthworks Outdoor, we’re passionate about trees – their beauty, their ecological benefits, and the role they play in creating healthy, vibrant communities.

Fascinating Facts About Trees: Did You Know?

Trees are truly wondrous organisms that offer a multitude of benefits to both the environment and humans. They act as nature’s air purifiers, filtering out up to 60 pounds of pollutants a year, significantly improving the air quality we breathe.  Furthermore, strategically planted trees can cool down our buildings in the summer by providing shade, resulting in a reduction in energy consumption by up to 30%. In the winter, these same trees can act as windbreaks, lowering heating costs for homes.  Beyond their aesthetic appeal, which increases property values and enhances neighborhoods, trees provide vital habitat for countless species of birds, insects, and small animals, playing an essential role in maintaining healthy ecosystems.

Planting a Seed for the Future: Tips for Planting Your Own Tree

Planting a tree can beautify your surroundings and benefit the environment for years to come. To ensure your tree thrives, choose a species that fits your climate and space limitations. Pick a planting location that avoids underground utilities and allows the tree room to grow. When digging the hole, focus on width rather than depth, and loosen the soil to promote healthy root development. Plant the tree at the proper depth, with the root flare exposed, and water it consistently, especially during the first year.
