Trees are often an overlooked resource within our cities and towns. Urban forests provide a wide range of benefits to our communities, from saving money and increasing property values to providing clean air and water and improving your overall health. This presentation will discuss the many benefits (ecosystem services) trees provide, how they can be part of the solution to some of our environmental concerns, and the role of proper tree care management in the success of our urban forests in NC.
