Continuous upkeep of your trees can definitely make an impact on your everyday life. For every dollar spent on maintaining trees, the public receives three dollars worth of benefits. Mature trees can improve our aesthetic neighborhood, absorb noise, reduce stress and crime, and create a calm, serene environment to relax in or socialize in. A single large tree can release up to 400 gallons of water into the atmosphere every day. Tree foliage filters dust and can help remove toxic pollutants from the atmosphere. The foliage captures and removes a wide range of smog-producing compounds such as ozone, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide, airborne ammonia and some sulphur dioxide. Large trees remove 60-70 times more pollution than small trees. Landscape trees, which act as wind breaks and sunscreens, can help you save money and live more comfortably. With properly placed trees around your house, depending upon where you live, you can reduce winter heating bills up to 15%. Trees and shrubs also improve property value by 10-20%. Almost every city in our country has recorded a drop in the number of trees along its streets due to development, pollution, disease and neglect.
