The Big Benefits of

Trees
Health
Trees purify the air we breathe by taking in carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen. A tree’s roots help to purify the groundwater we drink. 
Value
Healthy mature trees add an average of 10% to a property’s value and give neighborhoods an established look. 
Energy Savings
Properly planted and cared for shade trees can reduce home energy costs by up to 40%. 
Climate Control
Trees cool the air by releasing water vapor, and the earth by throwing shade.
