celebrate the earth

The beauty of a tree is everlasting

Celebrated every April 22, Earth Day is the largest, most celebrated environmental event world-wide.
One billion people in more than 170 countries join in staging events and projects to address local environmental issues.

Environmental challenges abound as our daily actions pollute and degrade the fragile environment that humans and wildlife depend on to survive.

What can we do?

Earth Day provides the opportunity for positive actions and results. First launched as an envirohmental awareness event in the United States in 1970, Earth Day (April 22) is celebrated as the birth of the environmental movement.
In 1990, 200 million people in 141 countries joined in celebrating the first International  Earth Day. In many countries, the global event brought pressure on heads of state to take part in the UN Earth Summit in Rio de Janerio to address issues such as climate change and the world wide loss of species.

We encourage you to take April 22nd to think about the world around you and how you could help, like recycling, reusing or planting a tree or garden.

Happy Earth Day , go green in 2013!

Trees are the longest living organisms on the planet and one of the earth’s greatest natural resources. They keep our air supply clean, reduce noise pollution, improve water quality, help prevent erosion, provide food and building materials, create shade, and help make our landscapes look beautiful. Here are some more thought-provoking facts and figures about our oldest citizens and living treasures…trees!

  1. Well-maintained trees and shrubs can increase property value by up to 14%.
  2. Trees properly placed around buildings can reduce air conditioning needs by 30%
  3. A mature tree removes almost 70 times more pollution than a newly planted tree.
  4. A healthy tree can have a value of up to $10,000.
  5. The shade and wind buffering provided by trees reduces annual heating and cooling costs by 2.1 billion dollars.
  6. Each average-sized tree provides an estimated $7 savings in annual environmental benefits, including energy conservation and reduced pollution.
  7. A single tree produces approximately 260 pounds of oxygen per year. That means two mature trees can supply enough oxygen annually to support a family of four!
  8. Water originating in our national forests provide drinking water for over 3400 communities, and approximately 60 million individuals.
  9. One tree can absorb as much carbon in a year as a car produces while driving 26,000 miles.
  10. Over the course its life, a single tree can absorb one ton of carbon dioxide.
  11. An average American uses about 750 pounds of paper every year, and 95% of homes are built using wood. That means each person uses the equivalent of one 100 foot tall, 16 inch diameter, tree every year for their paper and wood product needs.
  12. About one third of the United States of America is covered by forests.
  13. According to the last forest inventory, there are almost 247 billion trees over 1 inch in diameter in the U.S.
  14. The average tree in an urban/city area has a life expectancy of only 8 years.
  15. The tallest tree in the country is a Coast Redwood growing in northern California’s Redwood National Park. It is 369 feet tall and over 2000 years old!

Winter Tree

Trees help our environment and evergreens look fantastic even in the winter.

We went to a tree seed meeting this January and had the honour of visiting an araucaria forest in Chile. I love trees but had no idea how this unique Monkey Puzzle Tree Forest in the mountains of Chile, near the Argentina border would affect my view of trees and how important they really are in our world.

Seeing that forest of ancient looking trees, some 1000 years old or more was one of those of life’s experiences that I will never forget. Apparently part for Jurassic Park was filmed and it is truly magnificent   place. So next time I plant a tree, I will think of all the living that will go on after I am gone and someone else will enjoy that tree I planted for many more years.

Did you know 2 mature trees provide enough oxygen for a family of 4?

Half of the world’s forests have disappeared.

Tree planting is the most cost effective way to reduce the CO2 in the atmosphere and cool down the earth’s temperature.
Planting 30 trees will remove a person’s carbon debt for that year.

What can you do?

Small changes in your life routine can add up to big differences in helping to help the earth. It is difficult to believe that one person and planting one little tree can make a difference. But it can, and planting trees is an easy, fun way to contribute to greening your town.

The presentation of a tree at a special event is a tremendous gift. A wonderful opportunity to inspire, promote and plant trees for a Greener Tomorrow. By giving Trees as Favors at their Weddings, brides and grooms will set an example and possibly inspire their guests.  Meaningful gifts create “growing memories” that last a lifetime.

In all things of nature there is something of the marvellous.” - Aristotle

Celebrate earth day 2011 – plant a tree, save the earth for a greener tomorrow

tree gift of "green"

The celebration of Earth Day on April 22nd began in the United States in 1970 and was the brainchild of Senator Gaylord Nelson, who had long pondered about finding a way to “put the environment into the political ‘limelight’ once and for all” (his words). April 22 Earth Day, is now celebrated in most countries of the world. Earth Day is a perfect time to reflect about what you are doing to help protect the environment. There are many ways that you can celebrate alone and with others. 

We can help our planet by planting trees: Did you Know? One large tree provides oxygen for up to 4 people?
