The owner of this land in Wales could have chopped down the oak tree to make room for more crops, but we like to think he was too fond of the tree. And what’s not to like? Not only do trees provide beautiful scenery, they also offer animal habitat, cooling shade, and jobs. What’s more, they combat climate changes by absorbing CO2 from the atmosphere. Every day should be National Love a Tree Day, in our book.
