How well do YOU know flowering trees?

Every Spring we in American are treated to the wonderful sight and smell of flowering trees!  Sure the flowers are pretty, but there is something special about a rooted tree putting on a beautiful and fragrant display to usher in Spring.
Trees are also important to the environment.  They absorb CO2, removing and storing the carbon while releasing the oxygen back into the air.  They are essentially a natural air filter!  Trees also cool the area around them by up to 10 degrees and a home shaded by trees can reduce air conditioning use by up to 50%.  Grass is naturally a cooler ground cover, so if you choose alternative landscaping, be sure to plant trees as well.  And while you are at it, why not make it a Flowering tree!
