Increased Pollutants Will Jeopardize Our Health
Inadequate tree management emanating from an advisory change would also lead to an increase in pollutants in our community. If we lose our trees and don't have vital planting programs in place, we don't have these natural air and water purifiers in place. Trees help purify the air we breathe by absorbing pollutants. Trees reduce the amount of pollutants in our septic systems, saving dollars each year. Trees also reduce the amount of water-borne pollutants that reach streams.
