The gift of a tree is a gift that keeps on giving and now is one of the best times to get new trees into the ground. If you’d like a tree for shade in your yard, or want to gift a tree,Ojai Trees can help. We are having another volunteer tree planting on Saturday, January 19th.
Give a new tree the best possible start at a long and healthy life by planting at the start of a new year. Ojai Trees can help you select the right tree for the right place, help plant it, and teach you how to care for it properly. Ojai Trees is a nonprofit tree planting group that has been planting trees in Ojai for over 10 years.
Why do we do it, even with the drought? We do it because trees make our community healthier, more beautiful, and actually help to capture our blessed rain with their canopies and roots increasing groundwater recharge. One well-placed, full-grown tree will cool your yard up to 20 degrees. Trees can also stabilize hillsides and provide wind breaks that can slow evaporation. By planting trees we add to our neighborhood tree canopy making walking and biking a more pleasant experience for us all. It can even increase our property values by making our town more livable.
This planting event is a great opportunity to take some positive action toward healing the environment in your own backyard, ensuring the future health of our community tree canopy. Hey, tree planting events are fun and energizing.
