An abundant, healthy urban tree canopy increases property values, reduces storm water runoff and erosion, improves air quality and reduces energy used for heating and cooling. Every tree makes a difference! A single 8-inch-diameter red oak in a backyard in Wausau provides $51 worth of annual benefits, which will increase as the tree grows. Discover the value of the benefits provided by individual trees around your home and in your community with the National Tree Benefit Calculator [exit DNR].
