The Value of Trees to Your Community
Water Quality - Healthy trees act as a natural filter for our water supply. The canopies and root systems help control storm water runoff, flooding, and erosion.
Air Quality - Trees are natural air filters too! Trees provide oxygen, but the also remove harmful particles from our air, including dust, ozone, ammonia, and sulfur dioxide.
Energy Savings - Trees cool our air naturally by combining effects of water evaporation from their leaves and providing direct shade. Trees planted around a home or business can reduce heating and cooling costs from 15-30%.
Business - Trees are good for business. Research shows that consumers respond positively to shopping in business districts that are shaded.
Habitat - Trees provide food and cover for many animals. Mature trees increase diversity by providing micro-climates for shade-loving plants and animals!
