Love a Tree Day
When is Love a Tree Day? This holiday is always celebrated on May 16
It’s Love a Tree Day. So on this May 16 holiday, go out and give a tree a great big hug. Or, climb up into your favorite tree, and share some quality time with it. You will both benefit from the experience.
Trees are a good thing. They give us shade, comfort, and warmth. They give off oxygen, too. There are many, many benefits provided by trees. So, you have good reason to love a tree or two.
Everyone has a favorite kind of tree. Use today to identify a tree you love, and to pamper it. Give it a trim. Eliminate competitors around it. Feed it a dose of fertilizer. Tree spikes work great. And, give the tree some water, if it is thirsty.
Important Note: On Love a Tree Day, your attention must be placed on trees. A bush or a shrub just won’t do.
