People who live around trees are physically healthier and health care savings…around $7 billion a year

“…trees prevent crime, correlating tree coverage with crime statistics; the more trees, the lower the crime rate.
Research by the USDA’s Forest Service also showed that people who live around trees are physically healthier: ‘About 850 lives are saved each year, the number of acute respiratory symptoms is lower by about 670,000 incidents each year, and the total health care savings attributed to pollution removal by trees is around $7 billion a year.'”
