Trees contribute to their environment over long periods of time by providing oxygen, improving air quality, climate amelioration, conserving water, preserving soil, and supporting wildlife. During the process of photosynthesis, trees take in carbon dioxide and produce the oxygen we breathe. Trees are life which is why it is so important to replant trees.

HOW TO PLANT A TREE: To plant a tree, dig a saucer-shaped hole as deep as the tree's root system and 3 to 4 times as wide1. Remove any organic matter from the hole and position the tree so that the area where the roots meet the trunk is at or slightly above the ground. Refill the hole with the soil you just removed, pack it to get rid of any air pockets, add 2 to 3 inches of organic mulch, and water. Deciduous trees can be planted in the spring or fall, while conifers can be planted early in the spring or in the fall. Protect the tree during transport and plant it as soon as possible after delivery. Set the tree into the hole, backfill the hole halfway with the original soil, fill the hole with water, wait for the water to soak into the soil, and then finish filling in the hole with soil. Firm the soil around the trunk and water again to remove air pockets.
