Plant a tree and our air will thank you.
- Plant more trees and protect the existing urban forest.
Trees reduce the harmful effects of greenhouse gases by sequestering CO2 and creating shade and wind protection that reduce building heating and cooling needs. Other benefits include improving our air, protecting our water and reducing stormwater runoff. They also enhance the charm of our urban areas and keep our parks and natural areas lush. Continuing to maintain and expand tree cover can contribute not only to reduced carbon emissions and energy use, but also to enhancing Boulder's livability.
