Trees restore natural harmony in an urban environment, giving scale to human life. Trees are alive, like us, and require an investment and continuous maintenance in order to provide the maximum desired benefits.
Some benefits include:
Air Filtration. Trees filter out particulate matter and absorb harmful fasses while producing oxygen.
Water Purification and Conservation. Trees slow and filter rain water and protect aquifers and watersheds.
Lower Heating/Cooling Bills. Trees reduce yearly heating and cooling costs by 2.1 billion dollars.
Climate Control. Trees moderate and provide protection from the effects of sun, wind, and rain.
Increase Property Value. Well-cared for landscape properties with trees are 5-20% more valuable than non-landscaped properties.
Improve Social Interaction. Trees in neighborhoods lower the crime rate, create privacy, provide sound barriers, as well as add beauty.
