Trees Improve Air Quality Outdoors and Indoors
Trees can improve air quality in direct and indirect ways. Indirectly, they can help by shading surfaces and reducing temperatures.
If buildings are shaded by trees, it reduces the need for conventional air conditioning, and the emissions of greenhouse gases that come with it.
Plus, lower temperatures decrease risk of harmful pollutants like ground level ozone that commonly spike on hot days in urban areas and they also act as an ecosystems “liver” too, filtering atmospheric pollutants like sulphur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide through their leaves.
Conifers, silver birch, yew and elder trees were the most effective at capturing particles.
Indoor plants can have a positive impact health in condo living. Have a home, plant some trees, perhaps?! 😃🪴🌳
