This year sees the 40th Anniversary of National Tree Week, the UK's largest annual tree celebration launching the start of the winter tree planting season. Over this next week (November 28th to December 6th), Hera Search is growing The Hera Forest by planting 2000 trees across various protected sites around London and the South East to show our support. From combating climate change, to providing food, there are countless reasons why trees are good for us and why there has never been a better time to get your hands dirty and plant a tree!
Today’s TreeInspiration – Acacia:
Commonly known as thorn or shittah trees. These beautiful trees occur in a variety of open, tropical to subtropical habitats. In parts of Africa, Acacias are shaped progressively by grazing animals of increasing size and height, such as gazelle, gerenuk and giraffe. In ancient mythology, the Acacia was considered by the Egyptians as “the tree of life."
