The Tree Museum

Welcome to the Tree Museum.  I am Laura Burton, the curator.  It's an honor to speak for the trees and our environment. Click "Here" to view my photography series, Puddle Tales, A Reflective Perspective; an exhibit dedicated to trees in all of their glory, reflected in the puddles below their trunks. 

"Trees are poems the earth writes into the sky." -Khalil Gibran

"The clearest way into the universe is through a forest wilderness."- John Muir

"Never say there is nothing beautiful in the world anymore. There is always something to make you wonder in the shape of a tree, the trembling of a leaf." -Albert Schweitzer

A study of 10 cities found community forests save an average of one life each year.  In New York City, trees save an average of eight lives every year.

One large tree can provide a day's supply of oxygen for up to four people.

Trees lower surface and air temperatures by providing shade. Shaded surfaces may be 20-45°F cooler than the peak temperatures of unshaded materials. 

Carefully positioned trees can reduce a household’s energy consumption for heating and cooling by up to 25%. Computer models devised by the U.S. Department of Energy predict that the proper placement of only three trees can save an average household between $100 and $250 in energy costs annually.
