Why do we take them for granted?

Feb 17, 2017
In this grand and beautiful world we live on there are a great number of and size of plants that surround us with their color, fragrance and healing properties but none are more grand than the tree. So why is it that for the majority of people in the western civilized part of the world, trees are taken for granted. They are just there, part of the landscape!

Given that trees come in all shapes, sizes, colors and for the most part just grow without demanding or needing attention from us, the humans, maybe this is in part why trees are taken for granted. Then again, maybe it's the fact that they have always been. As far as mankind knows trees have always been a part of this planet. Then again, because most people these days live and work in the concrete jungles of the big cities, trees are just plain overlooked in the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Personally, I think all the above reasons play into why so very many people go about their busy lives without giving any thought as to why we all should be caring for and protecting these marvelous plants we call trees.

Its common knowledge that the forests of the planet are being cut down at an increasing rate each year and much care attention needs to be dedicated to the preservation and replanting of the forests but the average city person is just plain not going to have the skill and know how to take part in saving the forests. However, there is an area that the average person is able to make a difference when it comes down to improving our tree landscape - the back yard. That's right, the residential yard. The majority of residences around the world have enough room for several if not many trees.

The trees don't need to always be the large landscape type of tree that is so common in the suburbs. In fact it is this type of large tree that becomes too large to care for and becomes a problem and an extra expense to cities and homeowners. There are hundreds of varieties of trees that have a mature height of fifteen to thirty feet that are excellent trees for the yards of so many cities around the world. If only ten percent of the cities and land owners would replace a dead or dying tree, that has to be removed, with several of these smaller trees the planet would improve in far to many ways to mention them all here.

So think of your favorite fruits, your favorite colors and blossoms and find a few new trees that you are going to add to the yard this year.
