Tree Care and the Environment

Trees alter the environment in which we live by moderating climate, improving air quality, and supporting wildlife. Local climates are moderated from extreme sun, wind, and rain. Radiant energy from the sun is absorbed by leaves in the summer, helping to keep us cool, and is only filtered by branches of deciduous trees in winter. Trees remove polluting particles from the air and swap carbon dioxide for oxygen.

Trees are also important for wildlife: James has attended a bat course in Richmond park aimed at arborists to help carry out tree works with consideration of the potential effects on bats and their habitats.
Nesting birds also need to be considered in tree work as they are protected in law. It can be important to maintain a tree rather than removing it, to keep the benefits it gives to us.
