Urban trees offer many more benefits than just adding greenery to urban landscapes. Here are some of the benefits:

  • Public Health Improvement: Research has shown that urban trees can improve physical and mental health for people. They can help to reduce anxiety and depression which helps to promote overall well-being. 
  • Energy Savings: Urban trees play a significant role in reducing energy consumption. If the trees are strategically planted, they can provide shade to buildings and homes which cools the buildings and reduces the need for excessive cooling. 
  • Environmental Benefits: Trees in urban areas contribute to environmental stability by reducing energy usage, removing air pollutants, and filtering stormwater.
