Why Trees are Important to All of Us

Forests currently cover almost two thirds of the landscape, and trees are found in every community. In both urban and rural areas they provide economic, environmental and
recreational benefits including:
• Watershed protection
• Timber products, pulpwood, and biomass for energy production
• Wildlife habitat
• Beautification of homes, streets, roadsides and parks
• Increased property values
• Tourism & recreation
• Improved air quality
• Storage of atmospheric carbon
