Who needs trees? We all need trees! Trees make a tremendous difference in our lives and the environment including improving air quality by producing oxygen, providing shade around homes and buildings which reduces the need for air-conditioning, generating jobs and raw materials, providing food and shelter for wildlife and increasing property values. This 4-H project will guide youth interested in trees on how to select a planting location, which tree to plant, when to plant and how to care for trees after planting. This project makes a great Arbor Day or Earth Day activity.
