Trees absorb odors and pollutant gases
Such as (nitrogen oxides, ammonia, sulfur dioxide and ozone) and filter particulates out of the air by trapping them on their leaves and bark.
Trees combat climate change
Excess carbon dioxide (CO2) caused by many factors is a building up in our atmosphere and contributing to climate change. Trees absorb CO2, removing and storing the carbon while releasing the oxygen back into the air. In one year, an acre of mature trees absorbs the amount of CO2 produced when you drive your car 26,000 miles.
Trees cool Your Home
Average temperatures in many cities have risen 2-3°C in the last 50 years as tree coverage has declined and the number of heat-absorbing roads and buildings has increased. Trees cool the city by up to 5°C, by shading our homes and streets, breaking up urban “heat islands” and releasing water vapor into the air through their leaves. The process of transpiration whereby trees release water vapour is why it always cooler sitting under a shady tree then a metal pergola.
