Trees improve our wellbeing. In urban areas, trees reduce noise, provide shade and beautify our surroundings. Research suggests that more green spaces, especially in urban areas, show a reduction in stress and higher levels of life satisfaction.
Trees improve air quality
Trees provide oxygen. Photosynthesis is largely responsible for producing and maintaining the oxygen content of the Earth’s atmosphere. Through this process trees will absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen, ensuring better air quality.
Trees increase property values
People are drawn to homes and businesses near trees.
A well landscaped property with mature trees ranks higher with prospective buyers and can raise property values by as much as 15%.
