Trees pay us back, USDA Forest Service (2005)

#economy #trees #USA #USDA Forest Service

Landscape trees provide benefits that far exceed the costs of planting and care over their lifetime. Environmental and esthetic benefits, such as energy savings, stormwater runoff reduction, cleaner air, and higher property values, are an average of three times greater than tree care costs. The greatest benefits are energy savings and higher property values.
