Yes sir. Totally worth it. I can't tell you how many jobs I have gotten because of it. And I started at a higher pay rate because of it too.
Got it in like 1992 or so. I planned a landscape for the walking trail along about a mile, researched indiginous trees, got a grant from the city council, consulted with the conservation office about the trees, purchased the trees (about 50-60), dug all the holes for the trees, and planted them. It is pretty cool to go back and see those trees now and they are 30-40 feet tall.
