Trees can add value to your home, help cool your home and neighborhood, break the cold winds to lower your heating costs, and provide food and shelter for wildlife.  The net cooling effect of a young, healthy tree is equivalent to ten room-size air conditioners operating 20 hours a day.
 
Landscaping, especially with trees, can increase property values as much as 20 percent.  One acre of forest absorbs six tons of carbon dioxide and puts out four tons of oxygen. This is enough to meet the annual needs of 18 people.
 
There are about 60 to 200-million spaces along our city streets where trees could be planted. This translates to the potential to absorb 33 million more tons of CO2 every year, and saving $4 billion in energy costs.  Trees properly placed around buildings can reduce air conditioning needs by 30 percent and can save 2050 percent in energy used for heating.
 
In laboratory research, visual exposure to settings with trees has produced significant recovery from stress within five minutes, as indicated by changes in blood pressure and muscle tension.
