Do you love trees? Do you want to learn more about them? If so, the Parkside Community Association (PCA) invites you to the 3rd Annual Parkside Tour of Trees on Saturday, June 10 at 11am.
The tour will be led by David Colligan, who will point out the various types of trees in the Parkside neighborhood. Colligan will also discuss the importance of trees, from helping to improve air quality to the psychological benefits that trees provide.
People who live on beautiful tree-lined streets are offered protection from the sun and the rain when they step outside. These “greener” neighborhoods are filled with more wildlife, including an abundance of birds.
Did you know that homes with trees have anywhere from 3.5% to 15% more value than those without?
Buffalo was once named The City of Trees. But over the years, we lost many of the trees to invasive species, winter storms, and numerous other catastrophes.
“We believe that learning about trees and their beauty is not only fascinating, but also essential to appreciating and preserving our environment.” – PCA
Join the PCA for the 3rd Annual Parkside Tour of Trees, and learn all about the wonders of the sturdy perennial plants that offer so much, and ask for so little – an occasional watering and pruning perhaps?
