Trees take care of humans by helping create clean air for us to breathe, providing shade from the sun, giving us beautiful scenery, and much more. So let’s be good neighbors by taking care of trees in return! That starts by paying attention to them, which is the inspiration for this year’s Almanac Challenge: Me as a Tree.
