Trees Increase Economic Stability
The scope and condition of a community’s trees and, collectively, its urban forest, is usually the first impression a community projects to its visitors. Studies have shown that:
A community’s urban forest is an extension of its pride and community spirit.
- Trees enhance community economic stability by attracting businesses and tourists.
- People linger and shop longer along tree-lined streets.
- Apartments and offices in wooded areas rent more quickly, have higher occupancy rates and tenants stay longer.
- Businesses leasing office space in wooded developments find their workers are more productive and absenteeism is reduced.
