Having healthy trees on your property improves the overall quality of life of all of the flora and fauna in the area and, in a subtler sense, the entire world. Trees in good health help to balance the ecosystem on your land, providing a healthier overall environment and contributing oxygen to the atmosphere. Healthy trees benefit everyone, including you and your family, any pets you might have, local plant-life like gardens and vegetables, as well as local wildlife. Trees that are healthy also produce tastier, healthier fruits for your consumption and enjoyment.
Healthy Trees Support Local Wildlife By Providing Habitats and Shelter
The Woodland Trust of the UK says that trees and the woods are an effective habitat for more wildlife than any other ecosystem. Squirrels gather tree fruit and nuts and bury them in the ground, providing food sources for insects and integrating nutrients into the soil. Trees are home to many insects, drawing life that feeds on them to your property (birds, butterflies, and mammals, etc). Having healthy trees on your property builds the health of every local organism, and when you think of the world as a shared space between humans and animals, it makes sense that you would support this.
Healthy Trees Work as a Carbon Sink, Cleaning the Environment of Your Property
According to Natural Resources Canada, an authority on the development and use of Canada’s natural resources, all forests and trees serve as a “carbon sink,” absorbing the carbon emissions produced by automobiles and other sources. They release oxygen into the air, and they are a sort of filter for air pollution in general. Healthy trees on your property serve to clean the air naturally, making for a cleaner, fresher environment.
