On Earth Day, give a gift to the planet by planting a tree. With this simple act, you celebrate the earth by increasing its leafy canopy. One acre of forest absorbs 6 tons of carbon dioxide and returns 4 tons of oxygen to about 18 people for a year. Not bad, eh?  Okay, so you can’t plant a tree in the ground because you live in an apartment or a  condo or you have 2 red thumbs. Well, then buy a potted tree to put on your balcony or in your courtyard. Every little leaf helps. Me? Why I’m planting yet another lemon tree today-in a very large pot to keep the size of the tree in check & easier for me to maintain.
