As a successful tree care business in Georgia with many years of service to residents of the Peach State, we have developed a unique and profound understanding of our beautiful southern trees. A recent study conducted by the U.S. Forest Service and the Davey Institute concluded that trees save lives. This is something we here at Yellow Ribbon Tree Experts have known and believed for many years. In the course of delivering a wide range of reliable and efficient tree services in Atlanta, our knowledge and appreciation of trees only continues to grow and deepen with each passing year.

The study measured how much trees contribute to the removal of fine particles from the atmosphere in big cities all over America. Ten urban areas were included in the study: Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Syracuse. Of these cities, the study discovered that Atlanta’s trees removed the most pollution from the city’s atmosphere.

Significant Health Benefits

By removing harmful particulates in the air, trees not only improve the air quality, but also contribute to overall human health. Fine particulate air pollution triggers a number of diseases with potentially serious health complications, such as lung inflammation and heart problems. Trees contribute to the health of city residents by ridding the air of such harmful elements.

Additionally, cleaner air significantly improves the general quality of life in any location, but most especially in over-crowded cities.

Intangible Life Benefits

Those who know the heat of a typical Georgia summer appreciate the shade that trees provide. Those who have plucked their sweet fruits know of their bounty. Those who have marveled at their majestic beauty know how they can soothe and calm even the most troubled heart. Trees bring numerous intangible benefits to people on top of cleaning the air they breathe, and for that, trees deserve protection and care in return.
