UK study says trees play major role in urban health, air quality and flood protection

The British conservation charity Woodland Trust has published a report detailing the important role of native trees in urban environments.

The report, entitled, ‘Greening the concrete jungle’, claims that more trees and woods in urban areas are needed in order to improve general health and wellness, reduce the risk of surface water flooding, raise the quality of life, support wildlife and enhance conditions for inward investment.

Trees are an inexpensive way to provide a diverse range of benefits for urban dwellers, who currently make up 80% of the UK population.
