Office Moving Company Offers Community Benefit

The Green Truck Movers plants two trees with every move. The benefits of trees on our environment and the future of our planet are many. Here are just a few.

Trees mark the four seasons of Earth

Is it winter, spring, summer or fall? Look at the trees and you will know.

Trees supply oxygen to our planet

In one years’ time an acre of mature trees can provide enough oxygen for 18 people.

Some trees can provide food

An apple tree can produce as much as 15-20 bushels of fruit per year. Trees also provide food for birds and wildlife.

Trees clean the air we breathe

Trees absorb odors and gases. They also filter particulates out of the air by trapping them on their leaves and in their bark.

Trees provide wood

In suburban and rural areas, trees can be cultivated and harvested for construction and fuel and a variety of modern day uses.

Trees reduce violence

Neighborhoods and homes that are absent of trees have been shown to have a greater incidence of violence in and out of the homes. Trees and landscaping apparently help to provide a level of tranquility and calmness.

Trees cool city streets and urban neighborhoods

As the number of heat absorbing roads and buildings continue to increase, the tree population tends to decrease which increases the average temperature of those areas.

Trees help prevent soil erosion

Trees slow runoff and hold soil in place on hillsides or stream slopes.

Trees create economic opportunities

Fruit harvested from trees can be sold providing income. Trees planted for timber use are harvested and sold for the construction trade. Tree farms provide baby trees for homeowners. Wood from cultivated trees can be used in many different ways. Trees are good for the economy.

Trees conserve energy

Three trees placed strategically around a single-family home can reduce summer air conditioning needs by as much as 50 percent. By reducing the energy demand for cooling our houses, we reduce carbon dioxide and other pollution emissions from power plants.

Trees increase property values

Having a home or land with any type of tree population can raise property values by as much as 15 percent.

Trees help prevent water pollution

Trees reduce runoff by breaking rainfall which allows the water to flow down the trunk and into the earth below the tree. This prevents storm water from carrying pollutants into the ocean. When mulched, trees act like a sponge that filters this water naturally and uses it to recharge groundwater supplies.

Trees combat the greenhouse effect

Global warming is the result of excess greenhouse gases, created by burning fossil fuels and destroying tropical rainforests. Heat from the sun, reflected back from the earth, is trapped in this thickening layer of gases, causing global temperatures to rise. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a major greenhouse gas. Trees absorb CO2, removing and storing the carbon while releasing the oxygen back into the air. In one year, an acre of mature trees absorbs the amount of CO2 produced when you drive your car 26,000 miles.
