The Benefits of Trees

We advocate for trees largely because of the immense beauty they provide. Trees are an integral part of our heritage and our future. A city that is well shaded by a forest canopy has many benefits to offer. These include:

  • More moderate temperatures. Trees reduce heat islands, shade our homes and offices in the summer, and provide windbreaks, which keep us warmer in the winter.
  • Increased community. People spend more time outside in areas with lots of trees, and know more of their neighbors.
  • Improved health. Many studies show that spending time with trees helps people recover from illness more quickly, reduce stress, and lower blood pressure.
  • Higher real estate values. Residential properties landscaped with trees and business districts lined with trees are more vibrant and attract more customers.
