The answer is a resounding yes. In fact, listing all of the positive environmental, health and financial benefits trees offer to our communities would be like telling you everything your smartphone can do…and you wouldn’t get to enjoy this simple but catchy animated video from the fine people at the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.

Here a few more they left out:

  • Civic beautification (obvious one)
  • Multiple stormwater management benefits
  • Prevention of water pollution
  • Prevention of soil erosion
  • Reducing speed of drivers, which reduces frequency and severity of traffic accidents
  • …and even making the wait for the bus feel shorter

If you want to learn more…or if you want to plant your trees in a soil that maximizes all of these benefits, give us a shout at info@arborteckc.com.
