Urban Trees

For the many people in the world living in cities, urban trees and parks are their nature. On top of being important to those people for relaxation, play, and mental health, urban trees have many other benefits. They help to reduce extreme temperatures, reduce rainfall impact, filter rain runoff, increase air quality, and reduce noise.

What You’ll Learn about Urban Trees and Why it Matters

You’ll learn all about Urban Trees, their benefits, what threatens them, and how to protect them.

So it’s a great time to learn about them and their impact!
