QUICK FACTS

Benefits of Urban Forests:

1. Pollution reduction

2. Energy conservation

3. Climate change mitigation

4. Improved human health

5. Enhanced native biodiversity

Also, did you know that:

– One large tree can lift up to 100 gallons of water out of the ground and discharge it into the air in one day.

– One large tree can provide a day’s oxygen for up to four people.

– To absorb the carbon dioxide produced by a typical car driven 20,000 km/year, 500 full-sized trees are needed. (ref: Tree Canada)
