When we think about trees we need to think about the ecosystem in which they exist. We need to think about how the rain affects them how having too much runoff coming towards the tree can drown it or having not enough can cause it to die for lack of water. We need to think of how much sun the tree actually needs, we need to think about how much daylight the tree can use because if we put it too close to the corner of the house where the eve hangs over the tree is not going to get enough light and then it will slowly die. We want our trees to flourish, to become all that they can be and quite frankly, all we bought them to be. we paid money for these trees in order that they can provide both beauty and potentially shade to our yards and bring the value of our property up. We did not buy these trees so that they can slowly turn yellow and die in our yards. therefore, it is important to take care of our trees because they are ours. when we bought them we decided that we wanted them to bring the value up in our neighborhood.
