Trees make our city beautiful and provide us with many benefits – shade, privacy, increased property values, shelter and food for birds and other small creatures to list just a few.
Trees contribute to the health of our planet earth. Trees clean the air by giving off oxygen, storing carbon, and recycling moisture into the atmosphere. Trees help prevent soil erosion, help modify temperatures, and act as windbreaks. In one year, an average tree inhales 26 pounds of CO2 and exhales enough oxygen for a family of four for a year.
Return on Investment. Benefits of trees have been known for a long time but it may be difficult to relate to the totality of all their advantages. With the help of a new computer program called i-Tree , you can now place a value on the benefits trees will pay back to you over time.
