Tree Care

Tree care

There are many benefits that trees provide

  • Trees supply the oxygen in the air we need to breathe
  • Trees keep our air supply fresh by absorbing carbon dioxide
  • Trees lower air temperature by evaporating water in their leaves
  • Trees provide shade and shelter, reducing yearly heating and cooling costs by 2.1 billion dollars
  • Tree roots stabilize the soil and prevent erosion
  • Trees provide food and shelter for wildlife

There is much to know about taking care of trees and ensuring they are properly planted for the community to enjoy.
