The effect of Urban Asheville on it’s trees
Urban trees largely have positive effects on the ecosystem within cities such as Asheville, North Carolina. They push out oxygen and absorve CO2 which creates a more breathable, fresher atmosphere. They increase energy conservation and reduce power costs for commercial or residential buildings in the city. Temperature reduction is also a key component of one of the major benefits tree have in urban areas.
Did we mention that they also remove air pollutants and mitigate Heat Island Effects. That’s right air pollutants which are common in major urban areas are absorbed directly through the leaves of trees. They are also able to block out noise as well as harmful ultraviolet rays.
