The value of having mature trees in and around a city environment is priceless.
As an example, trees play an important role in converting CO2 into oxygen as a process during photosynthesis. This is particularly valuable in urban areas as there is often a higher concentration of people as well as higher numbers of pollutants. As the value of mature trees has become clearer, so has awareness of the need to preserve them. Protecting the root network is a critical step towards preserving the benefit and ensuring their long term survival.
