Benefits of Trees in Your Community – Arbor Day (April 30th)

A healthy urban tree canopy increases property values, reduces storm water runoff and erosion, improves air quality and reduces energy used for heating and cooling. Every tree makes a difference! [You could calculate the benefits for a specific tree in your community as an example, such as “A single 8-inch-diameter red oak in a backyard in Wausau provides $51 worth of annual benefits, which will increase as the tree grows.”]
