Urban Forest Issues


Trees are a major part of our community environment.  They benefit us in a myriad of ways.  Heating and cooling costs are reduced through properly placed trees around homes and businesses.  Trees provide needed windbreaks in open areas. When planted near windows of hospitals and nursing homes, it has been shown to improve the disposition of patients. Trees provide as many environmental, aesthetic, and monetary benefits as there are communities.
