Today we celebrate Arbor Day, an official holiday in which citizens of the Earth reflect on the impact that Mother Nature has on our way of life and, more specifically, the importance of trees in maintaining balance and life itself on that little third rock from the sun that we call home.

Take time to visit the Landscape Architecture Foundation's website, where they have tons of free, online calculators to help estimate landscape performance. For example, look at the National Tree Calculator, which calculates stormwater, energy, carbon, air quality, and property value benefits for individual trees, as well as the Environmental Impact Calculator, which estimates the environmental benefits of a study area or project, based on the tonnages of materials that are reduced, reused, recycled, landfilled, or incinerated.

We want to know how you plan to save a tree today. Share your stories and photos with @Vectorworks.
