Tree Stories

Trees add value to our homes and neighborhoods, providing food and habitat for wildlife, breaking the cold winds and lowering heating costs with shade, all while cleaning our air. But the benefits that trees provide to our community go beyond the science.

Trees are part of our shared history, with generations of memories preserved among branches and leaves. They hold stories of adventure, love, milestones and urban legends. Broken arms, first kisses, family members memorialized, and favorite picnic spots.
