Trees are the longest living organisms on the planet and one of the earth’s greatest natural resources. They keep our air supply clean, reduce noise pollution, improve water quality, help prevent erosion, provide food and building materials, create shade, and help make our landscapes look beautiful.
Well-maintained trees and shrubs can increase property value by up to 14%.
Trees properly placed around buildings can reduce air conditioning needs by 30%.
A mature tree removes almost 70 times more pollution than a newly planted tree.
A single tree produces approximately 260 pounds of oxygen per year. Two mature trees can supply enough oxygen annually to support a family of four! Read more at savatree.com
