They help control noise pollution and reduce flash flooding.Trees absorb carbon dioxide which contributes to global warming. They also clean the air by absorbing pollutants like carbon monoxide and sulphur dioxide. They also help to lower temperatures. They give shade during the summer and act as windbreaks during winter if they are located on the windward side.They also prevent soil erosion. It is seen that the presence of trees in an area can increase property values by at least 15%.
