Here at Moon Valley Nurseries, we love trees, and Arbor Day is a great reason to celebrate the many benefits trees provide us. As the largest box tree grower in the nation, we have a lot of knowledge and appreciation for trees of all shapes and sizes. Check out the several incredible ways trees affect our environment and how we all benefit from them!
Trees utilize carbon dioxide (CO2) as a resource in their growth, rooting, photosynthesis, and reproductive systems. They need carbon dioxide - much like we need oxygen. Because trees consume this greenhouse gas as a necessary nutrient in order to thrive, they essentially act like large air filters and are therefore incredibly beneficial for our environment. In fact, trees convert carbon dioxide and release oxygen in its place, which brings us to our next point.
TREES CREATE OXYGEN
We can think of trees as being the lungs of our planet. Trees create the air we breathe and filter air pollution. Planting more trees is one of the best things we can do for our local environment and our planet. This is why so many forward-thinking companies are beginning to create tree-planting initiatives, and at Moon Valley Nurseries, planting trees is our specialty! Planting trees can improve our quality of life too. The more we plant, the better!
TREES BENEFIT THE EARTH & YOU TOO!
Over the past 25 years, Moon Valley Nurseries has planted over 15 million trees, so why not make one of our many nursery locations your spot for your Arbor Day activities. We are happy to help you select the best trees and plants for your landscape and create a paradise in your yard, all while maintaining the wonderful earth we live on.
