Trees add more than just aesthetic beauty to the landscapes of our local schools. Trees offer shade, a place to cool down after a game of tag, a spot for snack, and an outdoor classroom for science. Our children play under these trees everyday. Trees are our outdoor classrooms, and providing a community school with vital tree care was important to us. Author Maggie Barker of Treasure in the City said, ” The goal is that children will fall in love with trees and see how important they are to the beauty and health of our lives. In fact, trees and children have something in common: They are both full of life and a source of beauty and renewal.” Providing Uni Hill Elementary School with a volunteer tree care day was an honor for us, knowing that each time a child plays under these trees, they will be safe and be able to enjoy the beauty, knowledge and power of their existence.
