Why we support the vision

Three reasons of many as to why we support the vision. Trees absorb odours and pollutant gases (nitrogen oxides, ammonia, sulphur dioxide and ozone) filtering the air by retaining particulates in their leaves, bark and lowering air temperature. Temperatures in Melbourne have risen 3°C in the last 50 years as tree coverage declined and the number of heat-absorbing roads and buildings increased. Cities can be cooled up to 7°C, by shading homes and streets, breaking up urban “heat islands”. Trees shield our children from ultra-violet rays. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the world. Trees reduce UV-B exposure by about 50 percent, thus providing protection to children at schools and playgrounds - where children spend hours outdoors. Trees reduce violence in neighbourhoods. Areas that are barren have shown to have a greater incidence of violence in and out of the home than their greener counterparts. Trees and landscaping help to reduce the levels of fear.
