Let us help you plant a tree (or forest)

Can you put a price tag on a Tree? What about the worth of a living tree? When you add it all up, a tree is priceless.

 

The benefits range from physical to emotional and its impacts reach below ground up to the heavens. Trees can be thousands of years old or just a seed, representing a lifespan and bio-mass far beyond human capacity. They grow right along side us, in direct exchange with the very air we breathe. They can be big, small, tall, short, flowering, evergreen, blueish, red, orange, yellow, sweet scented, and sentimental. 

 

Planting street trees convert streets, parking and walls into more aesthetically pleasing environments. There are few streetscaping elements that do as much to soften wide, grey visual wastelands created by wide streets, parking lots and massive, but sometimes necessary blank walls than trees. When a tree pit does not exist within a paved site, precise de-pavement is a viable option to create a new area for planting.
