Trees provide a myriad of social, economic, and environmental benefits. These benefits include, but are not limited to, sequestering carbon dioxide and reducing greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, improving water quality, providing natural sunblock and reducing your chances of sunburn, alleviating mental fatigue, reducing crime rates, and diminishing stressful noises. Trees enhance the quality of life.
In partnership with the Department of Health we are running the Daily Dose of Trees Campaign. This campaign encourages the public to get outside, among nature and reap all the health benefits that trees offer us!
