Benefits of trees

Trees provide many benefits including reducing temperatures in the built environment, adding value to properties, increasing aesthetic appeal, softening hard lines of buildings, providing privacy and a sense security when used as visual screens, providing a sound barrier and screening unsightly views.

Trees provide wildlife habitat, reduce stormwater runoff, reduce erosion, reduce dust, release oxygen, absorb carbon dioxide and air pollutants. Trees can also increase the value of properties in areas with many trees as a street scape.
