MyTree allows you to explore the individual benefits provided by the trees near you. Offering more than just beauty and shade, trees provide tangible benefits, such as removal of atmospheric carbon dioxide and pollution, storm water reduction, temperature modification, and more. By removing carbon dioxide, trees help mitigate climate change. The shade provided by urban tree canopies can also help minimize the urban heat island effect. In addition, trees intercept storm water, which can reduce flooding and improve water quality, and reduce air pollution, such as ozone, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, and fine particulate matter. Reduction of air pollution has proven benefits to human health - trees truly can enhance our lives!
