URBAN FOREST AND TREE BENEFITS
Did you know...
San Diego’s tree canopy is 60-70% below what is considered healthy for humans and the environment, and it continues to decrease in size. Drought, tree disease, and neglect all are significant contributors to a tree canopy’s decline. California metropolitan areas have long histories of tackling these issues with help from urban forestry organizations, and Tree San Diego is at the forefront of the battle to preserve, protect, and enhance the region’s urban forests!
One of the best investments we can make in San Diego’s future is through tree preservation, enhancement, and expansion. Trees provide us with vital resources and services by providing clean air, increased property values, and beautiful neighborhoods. Learn more about trees by reading about urban forest elements!
