Urban Forest Issues

Trees are a major part of our community environment. They benefit us in a myriad of ways. Heating and cooling costs are reduced thr​ough properly placed trees around homes and businesses.

​Trees provide needed windbreaks in open areas. When planted near windows of hospitals and nursing homes, it has been shown to improve the disposition of patients.

Trees provide as many environmental, aesthetic, and monetary benefits as there are communities.

Recent study shows trees are worth $5.7 million a year to Indiana​polis, Indiana. Researchers from the US forest Service evaluated more than 117,000 trees managed by Indianapolis Parks and Recreation. To find out more view City of Indianapolis, Indiana, Municipal Forest Resource Analysis.
