The trees in our urban forest are a critical component of the City’s infrastructure that essentially pay for themselves: they increase property values, reduce water pollution, improve air quality, support a variety of wildlife, enhance people’s quality of life, and provide an aesthetically pleasing homage to Saratoga’s vibrant history. The Urban Forestry Project works with homeowners and the City of Saratoga Springs to keep growing our urban tree canopy. If you don’t plant a #NextGenTree, who will?
Why plant trees?
Trees are a critical component of the City’s infrastructure that essentially pay for themselves. Trees are actually one of the most cost-effective parts of the urban infrastructure. Given the right space and a little care, trees pay us back in so many ways.
