Why preserve and protect trees?
Trees have long enhanced the places we live, work and play, and as our climate changes, there are more reasons than ever to preserve and protect them. With temperatures rising and weather becoming more unpredictable, trees are a vital resource, important for their ability to absorb water, lower temperatures, clean the air and even buffer the effects of wind.
Traditionally, home and business owners have enjoyed trees for their ability to increase a development’s monetary value, attractiveness and marketability. In Canada, trees can enhance property values anywhere from five to 20 per cent. As part of our ecosystem, they maintain the quality of water, soil and air, store carbon dioxide and release oxygen, and provide shelter and nutrients that support diverse species.
What’s involved in tree preservation?
Protecting and preserving trees involves planning for their growth and maturity, understanding what they need to thrive, and preventing injury and disease. At Capital Tree Service, we frequently work together with land owners, developers, planners and municipal officials to create and uphold tree preservation and protection plans.
