People enjoy trees for many reasons. Some like standing under the shade of a Southern Oak during hot summer months. Other’s love the sight of blooming Magnolia flowers in their front yard. However, the relationship that humanity and nature itself has with trees goes back to the beginning of our existence. And the planet itself is dependent on trees for the cleansing of its air and the production of fresh oxygen. At 404-CUT-TREE, we proudly provide tree services in Atlanta, Suwanee, Buckhead, Roswell, College Park, Stone Mountain and other nearby communities. Our passion for tree care goes beyond expectation, and we enjoy sharing our desire for healthy trees with our clients. Here’s a short list of just a few fun facts about trees and the miraculous role they play in our world.

  • The oldest living organism on the earth is a 5,000-year-old Bristlecone Pine found in the White Mountains of California. That means this incredible tree began its life during the Bronze Age – at the same time of the construction of Stonehenge and the Sumerian developed of cuneiform writing.
  • In an urban environment, tree’s only have an average life expectancy of 8 years.
  • One third of the United States of America is blanketed by forests.

  • The water produced in America’s national forests is the source of more than 60 million citizens’ fresh water.
  • Most average sized tree varieties offer $7 worth of environmental benefits per year by reducing pollution and helping to conserving energy.

  • One mature tree can produce around 250 pounds of oxygen annually.
  • The average US citizen uses over 700 pounds of paper yearly, and most homes are constructed using wood timber frames. This equates to a 100-foot-tall tree each year to supply their paper and wood usage.
