Trees absorb carbon from the atmosphere, conserve soil and water, provide homes for animals, shade for humans, and are a source of food and medicine.
  • Trees can serve as a living memorial of a club anniversary or a member's birthday
  • Some clubs have planted Lions memorial forests.
  • Other clubs have sponsored contests. 
  • The grand prize was a tree planted in honor of the contest winner.
Tree planting tips from the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP):
  • Dig a hole twice as wide as the root ball. 
  • Slightly loosen the root ball. 
  • Place the tree in the hole.
  • Cover the hole with soil.
  • Water the tree.
  • Remove weeds around the tree.
  • Protect the tree from animals.
