Human Health/Social Benefits
• In housing areas with more trees, rates of domestic violence are lower than in otherwise identical housing areas with fewer or no trees.
• Symptoms of children with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) are relieved after contact with nature.
• A major study estimated that trees in that city annually removed 15 metric tons of carbon monoxide, 84 tons of sulfur dioxide, 89 tons of nitrogen dioxide, 191 tons of ozone, and 212 tons of small particulates.
• Several studies have shown that the values of homes in neighborhoods with trees are higher than those of comparable neighborhoods without trees.
Texas Trees Foundation (TTF) and Oncor have launched an interactive online educational website designed to help both children and adults learn important facts to ensure their tree planting experience is a rewarding one. This fun, educational web site permits children and adults alike to learn about the value of trees and the value in planting the right tree in the right place at the right time. The new site is located at www.TexasTreeSmart.org. The new interactive site is designed to help people as they begin to replant the urban forest. The site provides information, technology and access to resources to ensure newly planted trees provide maximum benefit while not interfering with utility lines.
