Trees are an integral part of our community, and they provide a wide range of benefits that help to enhance our quality of life. Trees improve air quality, provide habitat for our wildlife, and prevent erosion and reduce stormwater runoff. The shade trees provide can help to cool our streets and sidewalks, reduce the temperature in urban areas and lower our home energy bills. Trees also boost property values and enhance the beauty of our homes and public spaces.
