As a coastal community, our urban forest plays a vital role in reducing pollutants that enter the ocean. Trees will sequester the carbon in the air allowing the tools to help us breathe better and combat climate change. In addition, trees can help provide shade to lower the amount of energy used to cool homes and businesses. Trees have also shown to have an impact on wellbeing, recovery and encourage physical activity by providing shaded sidewalks to walk on hot days. Other co-benefits include reduction in noise, community pride, social cohesion, increased home values, wind reduction and flood mitigation.
