BENEFITS OF PLANTING TREES


BENEFITS OF PLANTING TREES 

Reduce Erosion and Storm Runoff

Pollution from storm runoff is fouling our waterways. Tree canopies deflect rain, causing it to hit the ground more slowly, increasing absorption. The planting of trees means improved water quality, resulting in less runoff and erosion. This allows more recharging of the ground water supply. Wooded areas also help prevent the transport of sediment and chemicals into streams.

Airborne particles such as dust and smoke are temporarily removed from the air by mechanical interception, primarily on leaf surfaces.
