  • Remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere
  • Reduce soil erosion and storm water runoff
  • Increase real estate values
  • Provide privacy, screen urban infrastructure and reduce noise
  • Located properly, trees can reduce air conditioning and heating costs
  • Provide wildlife habitat and food
