Trees Benefits of - Yoga Palm Beach

Tree Facts - Environmental Benefits

    Environmental Benefits
  • Trees intercept and slow storm water, decreasing the likelihood of flooding and erosion, and improving water quality
  •  Large trees have a greater benefit in terms of reducing pollution than small trees
  • Trees, shrubs, hedges and grasses have a positive effect on the environment by the transpiration of water and the emission of oxygen by photosynthesis
  • Plantings around buildings are a proven method of reducing the demand for artificial heating and cooling with a resultant, and important, lower use of fossil fuels.
  • Greenery provides ‘white noise’ reducing the effects of man-made sounds
  • Haven’t we all driven around looking for that shady spot to park on a hot summer day!
  •  Trees and other plantings can reduce asphalt temperatures of carparks by as much as 13°C, and cabin temperatures by 17°C.
  • 500 trees are required to absorb the 5 tonnes of greenhouse gas emitted by a 4 cylinder car driven 20,000 kilometres.
  • 30 to 40 mature trees are required to store the carbon produced by one person.
  • Tree canopy on private land is declining at a rate of 5% per year.
