10 Reasons to Plant a Tree

  1. Trees provide shade in summer, cooling our homes and streets.
  2. Trees improve air quality by trapping air pollutants.
  3. Trees absorb rainwater so roads don’t flood and sewers don’t overflow.
  4. Trees reduce home heating and cooling costs.
  5. Trees increase property values. For rental properties, they bring higher rents.
  6. Trees muffle noise.
  7. Trees enhance our sense of well being, calm and serenity.
  8. Trees influence drivers to slow down.
  9. Trees provide shelter for birds and other wildlife.
  10. Trees make our streets beautiful!
