Trees & Benefits
Trees provide valuable services like shade, fruit, medicine, flowers and even absorb carbon dioxide and produce oxygen! According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, one acre of forest absorbs six tons of carbon dioxide and puts out four tons of oxygen. Trees and plants also filter air quality by removing dust particles and absorbing pollutants. Trees are key controllers of the climate and mitigate effects of the sun, wind and precipitation. Leaves absorb the radiant energy from the sun and keep the earth cooler in summer and reduce your air conditioning bills. Trees also preserve warmth by providing a screen from harsh wind in the winter. They are part of the essential nutrient cycles in the soil and are home to countless animals.
