Trees are valued for the many benefits they provide to our global landscapes. They offer us shade on hot days, provide important habitat and food for our native wildlife, combat climate change by sequestering carbon, increase property value and improve mental health – just to name a few! In honour of Earth Day, I want to share one particular benefit of our trees – their ability to decrease stormwater runoff and filter pollutants!

Mulching is incredibly important for urban trees and shrubs! Aside from being aesthetically pleasing, mulch also has many benefits that can improve the overall health of your garden.
When considering nature, most people think about forests and parks, but did you know that your own yard plays a very important role in supporting wildlife in our cities?
What is the first thing you notice when you look at a tree? For me, it’s their strong trunks that extend into branches, from which beautiful canopies emerge. Aside from admiring their beauty and receiving their benefits, I realized I didn’t really know much about trees.
Trees have always made me feel blissful and loved. I want others to experience those feelings and develop an appreciation for everything they do for us!
