Trees play a vital role in the health, social framework and economic sustainability of an area. Trees are on the job working for us 24 hours a day, every day, improving our environment and quality of life. In the long term, they often create a very real ‘sense of place’ and enhance the public domain. Trees can also:

  • Provide habitat for native animals
  • Reduce the effects of urban heat
  • Reduce airborne pollution
  • Reduce carbon dioxide in the atmosphere
  • Protect from soil erosion
  • Encourage outdoor activity
  • Reduce exposure to the sun and UV rays
  • Improve physical, emotional and psychological wellbeing
  • Create privacy and lessen noise
  • Provide a connection to nature
  • Soften and screen street infrastructure
  • Reduce demand for energy
  • Contribute to ecological biodiversity
  • Improve property values and rate revenue
