Trees provide food and habitat for wildlife, improve air quality and shade your home, reducing energy use.

Age-old wisdom

Native trees’ long-term adaptation bolsters survival, says National Gardening Association senior horticulturist Charlie Nardozzi. Native trees naturally fight pests and disease and control soil erosion.

Community diversity

Pay attention to what’s already in your neighborhood, suggests Arbor Day Foundation arborist Robert Smith. If an area includes few tree species, disease can wipe them out more easily, leaving whole blocks barren. Work with your community forester to plant greater tree diversity.
