Plant a Tree in Your Community
在你的社区栽棵树吧

Almost everyone loves trees, but did you know that trees can help people heal faster?
几乎所有人都爱树,但是你知道树可以帮助人类更快的恢复健康吗?

It’s true. According to the ISA (International Society of Arboriculture), hospital patients have been shown to recover faster when offered a view with trees. And while trees certainly benefit any landscapes—whether lining residential streets, dotting urban areas, or in full glory in the forest—they are actually important to our daily well-being.
这是真的。根据国际树木协会研究,医院提供带有树木的环境里病人能康复得更快。并且树木的确有益任何地貌环境----无论是成排的居住区街道,星罗棋布的城市地带,还是在树木繁茂的森林里----题目的确对我们的日常健康十分重要。

Trees improve the quality of the air around us by absorbing dust and other particulates (微粒), and release clean oxygen for you to breathe. If the health of people and the environment aren’t high on your list of concerns, perhaps your wallet is: Trees make economic sense. A home surrounded by trees costs less to cool and heat. Neighborhoods with trees are often several degrees cooler than those in similar climates that don’t have trees. In winter, trees can keep your house warmer by blocking high winds. Also, less water is needed in tree-shaded areas where the sun isn’t constantly boating down on the earth below.
树木改善了我们周围的空气质量,通过吸收空气中的尘埃和其它微粒,释放新鲜的氧气供人们呼吸。如果人类的健康和环境并不在你的最高关注排行榜上,也许你最关注的是你的钱包:树木也有经济效益。一所被树木环绕的房子能减少制冷热的成本。带有树木的居民区在相同气候下往往比那些没有树木的居民区凉爽好几度。冬天,树木通过阻挡狂风来保持房屋室温,此外,树需要的水更少----绿树掩映的区域让太阳不能一直停留地表。

Besides, trees can enhance privacy, block unpleasant views, and improve the value of your home. Unfortunately, these days, mass construction projects tend to wipe out all the trees in an area before creating new neighborhoods and buildings. That’s why it’s more important than ever to plant a tree in your community.
此外,树木可以增强隐私,阻挡不愉快的风景,提高房屋的价值。不幸的是,近年来,大规模的建设项目往往会铲除这个区域所有树木,以便建设新的居民区和建筑群。这就是为什么在你的社区植树变得尤为重要。

Check out the NADF (National Arbor Day Foundation) online to find out more about planting a tree in your area or how to volunteer in an urban center. The Arbor Day Foundation can tell you how to plant a tree in someone’s name as a gift, donate a tree in someone’s honor, or memorialize a loved one by planting a tree.
