My New Live Oak Tree

One way to help the environment is to plant a tree. Today I planted a new live oak in my front yard. The tree, when it grows up, will provide shade which will keep our house cooler in the summer. This will help save on air conditioning cost. It will also make a small contribution in the fight against global warming by removing carbon dioxide from the air.

The tree doesn't look like much now. But as its grows, will also add an attractive addition to my front yard year. A great feature about the live oak is that keeps its leaves all year long just live an evergreen.
