Tree benefits

Trees provide many benefits to our community, including:

  • Supplying the oxygen in the air we need to breathe
  • Keeping our air supply fresh by absorbing carbon dioxide
  • Lowering air temperature by evaporating water in their leaves
  • Providing shade and shelter, reducing yearly heating and cooling costs by 2.1 billion dollars
  • Stabilizing the soil and preventing erosion
  • Providing food and shelter for wildlife
