Save the Trees – Protect Nature – Preserve Your Health

Posted by on November 5, 2019 in Eco-Friendly, Environment with 0 Comments

One of the most beautiful things about nature is the trees. As well as adding color and beauty to an area, they also add shade and value to a property. Trees and other greenery can also add additional health benefits such as better breathing, cleaner air, stress relief, depression defense, disease prevention, and better sleep. Planting extra trees makes an urban area look more beautiful and lively while improving life for the local residents.

There’s more to trees than just making city spaces better though. Even for heavily wooded areas, the loss of trees is connected to increased mortality and risk of disease. While trees may be very resilient, they are by no means invincible. They can’t live forever without our help. They get old, are hit by drought and storms and other weather conditions, and they suffer from tree stress. They require proper tree care to thrive and flourish. Factors that contribute to tree stress and tree death are often honest mistakes made by people who simply don’t know better.

The Importance of Tree Care

Trees can grow pretty well on their own and don’t require too much maintenance. However, the consequences of inadequate tree care can quickly add up. The good news is that there are plenty of preventative measures and maintenance techniques that can be used to keep trees healthy.

Trees, much like animals and humans, require proper nutrition and a healthy environment. Trees also need regular pruning and proper tree care. If leaves start appearing a little late or falling off a little early, then now is a good time to think about the right tree care. You may also notice cracked and peeled bark, discolored leaves that lack veins, fungus, and dead branches.

Experts from the U.S Rigging Supply recommend that you should consider hiring a tree care expert – known as an arborist – to manage tree health. These professionals are fully trained in planting and cutting trees and they can do wonders to extend tree life if you notice that your trees are getting close to the end of their life.

The Science of Trees

The study and science of trees – which arborists are experts in – is known as arboriculture. While most people know trees produce a lot of oxygen during their lifetimes, not many people understand the importance of proper nutrition for tree health. Merely being around trees can also do much to improve a person’s mental and physical health.

However, properly growing and maintaining trees can take a lot of hard work. Arborists are people who have a strong background in the proper care and nurturing of trees. They understand the techniques used to cultivate trees and care for them. They may perform a soil analysis test in order to determine the alkalinity or acidity of trees. Trees require the soil they grow in to have certain minerals and fertilizers to create a healthy environment for trees. On top of this, the locations where trees are planted need to be analyzed and tree root systems should be carefully managed.

Unfortunately, there may come a time when nothing can be done to save a tree and no amount of treatments is enough. The only thing left to do is ensure the tree is taken down in a way that doesn’t damage the surrounding area. Trees that have serious problems and structural defects should be cut down for safety purposes, such as to avoid toppling in high wind.


Arborists are a great help with tree care, but it is up to everyone to do what they can to preserve trees and keep them alive. More and more trees are lost each year. These giant plants provide us with oxygen, natural beauty, better quality soil, and they give life to the natural wildlife around them. Not only are they essential for all life on earth, but they are the longest-living species on our planet and we have to respect them and protect them to protect our future on this earth.
