Benefits are many

Planting a tree in your yard or parking strip creates long lasting benefits enjoyed by everyone! Did you know that trees remove pollutants from the air? A typical tree absorbs 10 pounds of pollutants, cleans 330 pounds of carbon dioxide, and creates 260 pounds of oxygen each year! Trees also help intercept and retain 760 gallons of rainwater each year, which help keep our rivers clean and help save us money on stormwater fees! Trees raise the property value of your home by up to 20%.
