Let's do it urban!

Trees in urban areas can have multiple benefits related to aesthetics, microclimate regulation and urban hydrology. Trees in urban areas can also be important biodiversity refuges and can contribute to reducing particulate air pollution. Trees intercept precipitation, reducing the amount of rainfall which must be processed by sewers and other water transporting infrastructure. The area around urban trees may also have greater infiltration capacity than the impermeable surfaces often found in urban areas. Trees also transpire, which dries the soil and gives greater capacity for rainfall storage.
