Thank you Northbridge for helping Tree Canada in growing better places to live!

In addition to fighting the effects of greenhouse gas emissions, trees also:

– absorb CO2
– clean the air
– provide oxygen and shade
– conserve energy
– cool city streets
– save water
– help prevent water pollution and soil erosion
– shield children from ultra-violet rays
– provide food
– provide a canopy and habitat for wildlife
– help to slow and calm traffic
– serve as sound and wind barriers
– provide wood, a renewable resource
– increase property value

Exposure to trees and nature aids concentration by reducing mental fatigue and stress.
