Anyone who has read my blog knows that I love trees!!
So, it is quite logical that I would want to tell you about GIVING A GIFT OF LIFE WITH A GIFT OF A TREE PLANTING!!
I have lived in Southern California for about 28 years now - and there is a group here in Los Angeles that is all about planting trees - TreePeople!
They have various programs in the city of Los Angeles and somewhat beyond in the county of Los Angeles and even further beyond in forests of Southern California.
You can donate money for planting of trees in a variety of programs -- or you can donate your time and volunteer and even help with the planting of trees!!
They are truly a major contributor to the Greening of Los Angeles!!
BEYOND LOS ANGELES --
I was looking for a way for people to have trees planted in other places than Los Angeles and I finally found one - Trees Instead!
You can have trees planted in any US State, Canada, Israel and the Amazon through them!!
Also, for a variety of different events or occasions!!
I can't think of a greater gift of hope or life than planting a tree!!
A tree does so many things that are good for our environment and us:
- clean the air
- clean the water
- holding soil in place
- giving shade which keeps us and the land cooler and moister
- and of course they take in the carbon we so carelessly produce with a myriad of human activities and produce the oxygen we need for breathing!!
What a beautiful balancing act of nature!!
GIVE LIFE -- GIVE A TREE!!
