Benefits of Trees: A Tree Is More Than Just Leaves
Trees are important to the economic vitality and environmental quality of our communities. Air quality, property value, community beautification, economic attractiveness and general livability can all be positively impacted from the planting and care of trees in your community.
In summer, shade trees can save up to 50% of air conditioning costs. In winter, windbreak trees can reduce heating bills as much as 30%. Trees create oxygen, prevent ground runoff, create habitats for wildlife and play a large part in regulating climate change.
