Love a Tree Day
Love a Tree Day is held on May 16. This event in the second decade of the month May is annual. Help us
Trees are the longest living organisms on Earth, and never die of old age. They are able to communicate and defend themselves against attacking insects. There’s a lot to love about trees – but there are also a few quite amazing and rather surprising facts about them that you may not know.
Trees have only been around for the last 10% of earth’s entire history. Some trees don’t have a growth ceiling. Trees help each other to ward off predators. Trees can 'talk' to each other, and they even share nutrients. Fascinatingly, more than half of all tree species exist only in a single country – almost 58 percent, to be precise. It’s been proven that just looking at trees can make us feel happier, less stressed and more creative.
