Every year on April 22, or Earth Day, hundreds of people get together and plant trees, clean up their communities, and raise awareness for the environment. Though we at the Parke Company think it is always a great day to plant trees, this day is a great opportunity to take action in tree care. There are so many reasons why planting trees are necessary for not just the earth, but Nashville itself! From clean water to soil erosion, the list goes on and on. Here are other few reasons to consider participating in this year’s festivities.
Three Reasons to Plant a Tree:
- Cleans air and provides oxygen — There are many scientific studies showing the greenhouse effects of trees. In addition, trees provide clean air and oxygen for us to breathe.
- Provides habitat for wildlife — Birds, bees, squirrels, and other wildlife rely on trees for habitats.
- It’s fun! — Whether you are planting a tree with your family or you are doing it for your community, it can be a fun activity for all involved.
Earth Day is celebrated all across the globe, including Nashville. This year’s Nashville Earth Day Festival will be on April 19 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Centennial Park. The event will include educational exhibits and activities about our environment geared for all ages. For more information, visit their website here.
