Elementary Students Learn the Importance of Trees
SYRACUSE, Utah – Syracuse Arts Academy (North Campus) was selected from numerous applicants to receive a tree donation to support their new state-of-the-art amphitheater for the school and the local community. Ivory Homes has generously donated 24 trees to be planted around the amphitheater, helping increase the natural ambience of the theater.
Fourth grade students plant an imperial Honeylocust tree.
With the help of TreeUtah arborists, students were instructed on the importance of trees in our environment. For example: did you know that during one year, a mature tree will absorb more than 48 pounds of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and release oxygen in exchange? That means that in a few years, these 24 trees will be absorbing 1,152 pounds of carbon dioxide annually!
SAA students proudly smile and say, "Trees!"
Each grade then learned the correct way to plant a tree for the highest possible survival rate and assisted in digging holes and planting trees. The new amphitheater is now surrounded with fourteen Honeylocust trees and flanked on the sides by four Black Hills Spruce trees and six European Hornbeam trees.
