Find out how do trees and green spaces enhance our health

Trees help prevent flooding, release oxygen, reduce pollution, and boost both health and mood.

They muffle sound pollution and reduce air pollution, drawing in carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen. When rain pours from the skies, trees decrease storm water runoff, preventing flooding and soil erosion. They also provide valuable habitats to support biodiversity in insects, birds, and other animals, and microorganisms. The list goes on.
