Rapid urban development is contributing towards global warming giving rise to urban heat island effect.
Trees help in reducing this urban heat island effect in three ways :
1) Through utilisation of solar energy for photosynthesis
2) Through cooling the surfaces by providing shade
3) By performing a normal physiological process of evapo-transpiration which cools the surrounding air.
Trees are also one of the most cost effective way in sequestering atmospheric CO2 and thereby contributing significantly towards reducing impacts of global warming.
In addition, trees enhance the aesthetics of a surrounding and are highly preferred in urban landscape and street plantation projects.
Most importantly an increasing volume of international research confirms that trees in urban environments have a positive impact on human health. People are happier with trees around them. They feel comfortable and closer to nature
