Tis the season for gift giving, and whether your just starting or wrapping up your Christmas shopping McKinley & Associates wants you to consider giving a tree.
Why is tree-giving a good idea?
- They’re Inexpensive
Unlike pets, trees are relatively easy and inexpensive to take care of. The average cost of taking care of a tree is between $90 and $300 including trimming, treatment, and removal. You can purchase trees at Lowes for as little as $19 up to $200.
2. They Provide Beauty
The right tree can provide a wealth of beauty to your property or that of a loved one. It enhances views, provides shade, and often increases property value.
- It’s a Fun Activity
Unlike other gifts, when you give the gift of a tree it’s an opportunity for a group activity. You and your friends or family can get together to plant the tree together.
- Teaches a Valuable Lesson
Whether it’s a gift for a child, teen or adult, taking care of trees teaches people to appreciate nature, care for the environment, and how to take care of living things.
- Provides Satisfaction
The recipient of your gift will get the satisfaction of seeing the tree they planted grow over the years from a sapling into a beautiful tree. You’ll get the satisfaction of seeing your gift be enjoyed for years to come.
