How Can Trees Help Dallas?

 Air Quality

  • Trees produce oxygen and store carbon dioxide (just opposite of humans), which helps to clean and restore our air. They also trap pollutants, such as greenhouse gases, ozone and particulate matter (such as dust, smoke and pollen.)

  • A single, fully-grown Sycamore tree can transform 26 pounds of carbon dioxide into life-giving oxygen every year.

  • Large trees remove 60 to70 times more pollution than small trees. Only a small portion of the Dallas area tree population exceeds 24" in diameter.
