Trees are always working to help people.

Trees can reduce air conditioning needs by 30 percent and tree windbreaks can save 20 to 50 percent in energy used for heating.

Trees reduce noise pollution by absorbing unpleasant sounds from the urban environment.

Trees improve air quality by trapping and holding dust particles that can damage human lungs. Tree leaves absorb carbon dioxide and other poisonous gases and, in turn, replenish the atmosphere with oxygen for us to breathe.

One acre of trees provides oxygen for 18 people. Trees save household energy by cooling during hotter months and serving as a windbreak in the winter. As a result, you burn less fossil fuel for heating and cooling.
