Trees capture rainfall, increase soil infiltration and storage, and minimize runoff. This helps trees return better quality water to our groundwater. Residential homes experience savings of up to $10.80/gal of stormwater captured by trees as a result of these stormwater benefits
Improved Air Quality:
Trees absorb huge amounts of air pollutants like nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide, and ozone and intercept particulate matter.
Reduced Energy Use:
Trees provide shade in summer and release water back into the atmosphere, cooling air temperatures by 5-10°F. In the winter months, trees slow winds. Overall, trees can reduce heating and cooling expenses by 8-12%.
Trees can create a visual identity for businesses, and studies show that customers prefer areas with orderly, well-maintained planting schemes with tree canopies and accessory vegetation enough to spend 8-12% more at businesses with this landscape.
