Trees are good, but keeping your trees safe means understanding and addressing the risks associated with trees.
Benefits of trees in our urban environment
Today, most of us are urban dwellers living in cities or towns. Trees provide numerous benefits to those living and working in the urban environment. Even a single tree will perform several functions. Some benefits of tees include providing shelter, stabilising land, acting as a landmark, providing beauty and pleasantness. Trees remove air pollutants, block UV rays, lower air temperature and can reduce stress and mental fatigue thanks to a natural calming effect which benefits our health and wellbeing.
At Think Trees Northland we feel it is important that our urban areas are pleasant and attractive, have variety, function well and are good safe places to live.
Older and larger trees are also more likely to drop branches or have roots that fight with the site they inhabit. When trees or their branches fall and perhaps injury people or damage property they become liabilities. For tree owners, managing trees means understanding and addressing the risks associated with trees to make your property safer and prolong the life of the tree.
