Research has shown that trees and green spaces can have a positive effect on people’s health and well-being. Trees have a cooling effect, especially in urban heat islands.They remove carbon dioxide and other pollutant gases from the air and release oxygen back into the air. Studies have shown that hospital patients with a view of trees heal faster and have a more positive attitude about their recovery. Studies have shown that exposure to trees and nature reduces mental fatigue and more relaxed brain wave patterns.

Neighborhoods with an abundance of trees appear to have fewer incidents of violence. Studies have shown that kids with ADHD exhibit fewer symptoms when they are exposed to trees and green spaces. Trees reduce noise pollution by absorbing sound waves. Trees provide shade to protect your skin from too much sun and provide a cooling respite from intense heat. The color green is a cool, calming color which helps to relieve eye strain.
