Trees are essential wildlife habitat for many species ranging from birds, insects, mammals, reptiles, and amphibians. Trees provide food, water, cover, and places to raise young and a single tree is a micro-ecosystem of the larger environment. Adopting wildlife symbolically is a great way for young and old to learn about wildlife and provide habitat by having trees plant in honor of someone.
