Why is it Good to Plant a Fruit Bearing Tree in your Backyard?

Every fruit tree is beautiful. They just are. They are sparkling brightly with their diffrent styles, shapes and colors. Look at an apple tree. It dresses with red and glitters brightly. Plant a fruit tree. You have to take care of it everyday. Just think about the happiness in the faces of your son, and grand children when they will swing or eat from your fruit tree. I enjoyed caring for trees. I like to grow fruit trees in my backyard.

My experience

I currently have an orange tree, a cherry plant, two mango trees and a lemon tree in my backyard. The orange tree was my first, and I planted it because orange trees grow very easily where I live. It is the most successful planting as this orange tree provides me fruits every year. Honestly, the harvest from the orange tree also makes my family members happy. For sure, I cannot possibly eat all the oranges that my tree produces every year. So, we love to distribute them among our neighbors , relatives and colleagues.

What they give

All the fruits taste good and one tree can provide an abundancle of food. Trees provide us with food to eat and they create our house so attractive. They make the environment around our home so beautiful. Especially, large fruit trees can provide shade to our homes and they keep us cooler even in the hot months. And also the fruit bearing trees provide cover for birds. So, you can keep a small bench under your fruit tree. Feel how cool it is. They will give us sense of freshness. You can start bird watching. Imagine, one day a golden hummingbird may sit on a branch of your beautiful tree. Everything in this nature is balanced. All the living and non- living things are interconnected. So, all the trees are important for planet Earth and we must protect them. Tree plantation is a good activity to make our homegarden green, clean and healthy.

You should help nature

In school, when we were kids, we learned that trees are so helpful to the planet. But, have you ever grown a fruit-bearing tree in your backyard? Why didn’t you try it? If everyone planted a tree in their homes , our planet will be green again. When one becomes everyone, it makes a huge difference. So, do it yourself. Do your duty for nature.“Trees were here when you were born, and trees will be needed for the planet after you die. So, we have a responsibility to leave the world at least slightly better than it was when we entered it.”

Plant a fruit tree. You have to take care of it everyday. Just think about the happiness in the faces of your son, and grand children when they will swing or eat from your fruit tree.
