Father’s Day is coming and it’s time to honor the Dads in our lives. But what’s your plan this year? A nice dinner? A gift card to his favorite hardware store? Last minute dash to the store for a tie or coffee mug? Sure, you could fall back on the same old same old, but maybe it’s time to change it up.
If you’re looking for a way to really surprise a Dad this year, consider a tree! It’s an overused expression but a tree truly is the gift that keeps on giving. After all, what better way for a Father to be reminded of his value than by watching a tree grow and mature day after day?
If you decide that a tree is the way to go, the options are endless. Go big with the classic beauty of a Dogwood tree, Magnolia or Weeping Willow. Does Dad like to cook? Maybe an avocado, lemon or olive tree is a better fit. Japanese Maples with their vibrant colors and climb-able branches are perfect for families with young kids.
Whatever you decide, it’s a virtual certainty that the lucky Dad who gets a tree this year will be surprised and happy. If you have questions about planting, don’t hesitate to reach out to your local arborist for advice!
