Economic Benefits of Urban Greenspace

Trees and green spaces in urban areas provide more than aesthetic benefits. Where there are trees, there are reduced energy costs, decreased stormwater treatment costs, increased property values, increased spending at stores, increased employee satisfaction, and lower health care costs through cleaner air and increased recreational opportunities.

A healthy urban forest can produce long-term benefits that all residents can share.
