i feel like i should make a public service announcement that the arbor day foundation sells incredibly cheap (we’re talking $25 or less, though most are between $5 – $13) baby trees. you can even give them your zip code and they’ll let you know what varieties do best in your area!
seriously, i just got a magnolia from them and it is adorable and healthy and such a cute addition to my life. it’s small enough to keep in a pot indoors right now, so definitely apartment friendly!!!!! trees have been found to significantly improve mental health, and are good for your personal environment and The Environment as a whole. and plus, they’re fun to fuss over and love.
i will continue to reblog this b/c buying trees is awesome and soul-enriching.
