Urban Tree Planting

Plant a tree to intercept rain hitting the ground, which will reduce the amount of runoff from your property.

Why Urban Trees?
Urban trees are now understood to be a central part of green infrastructure systems and provide a range of benefits. Trees improve our urban spaces by beautifying neighborhoods, reducing the urban heat island effect, cleaning the air, reducing polluted runoff, and provide shade that lengthens the life of materials. In the summer, shadier streets also means lower neighborhood temperatures, which can reduce the air pollution that increase asthma rates.
