Trees calm the mind
It is a miracle that our cities have trees. At first, humans created cities and turned their back to nature pretendig to be safe from its dangers.
Gradually, nature was introduced back into cities in a controlled manner – only plants that were “good” for cities were planted in incremental amounts, and only in places that were destined for plants.
Nowadays we see thousands of trees grown in city streets, gardens and parks, and so far so good! Seemingly, it is hard to imagine cities with no trees but, there are still places with no trees at all.
Have you ever found yourself in one of those places where there are no plants at all? Where you can feel the burning sun blazing? In the Israeli climate, no exaggeration is needed.
The climate is becoming extreme and while we think of the future and surviving the upcoming years, trees calm the mind down. Trees are an effective and ancient technique for reducing climate temperature and human stress.
