Have you ever wondered how much a tree is worth? You know that trees are great, but what if you could assign a dollar value to an individual tree?
Staff will be evaluating various trees in Rotary Park using the National Tree Benefit Calculator
which uses each tree’s location, species and sizes to estimate the monetary benefit it provides each year by managing storm water, improving air quality, reducing CO2, increasing property value and reducing energy usage.
Price tags will be placed on the various trees and put up a map in the park that will allow people to find all the trees that will show the “Tree-Ching” value and benefits of our important urban forest.
