10 Reasons Why Life is Better with Trees around you

 

1.TREES PROVIDE US CLEAN AIR. Trees produce the oxygen we breath and sequester the carbon dioxide to help protect our atmosphere.  It has been scientifically proven that the leaves of trees absorb a lot of the air pollutants that cause respiratory diseases in humans.

 

2.TREES MAKE YOU HAPPIER.  Trees can make you happier and helps people to feel less stressed and more restored.  Research suggests that living in a place with nature around you leads to better health, creativity, and even kindness.

In one recent study, 585 young adult Japanese participants reported on their moods after walking for 15 minutes, either in an urban setting or in a forest. The forests and urban centers were in 52 different locations around the country, and about a dozen participants walked in each area. In all cases, the participants walking in a forest experienced less anxiety, less hostility, less fatigue, less confusion, less depressive symptoms, and more vigor, compared to walking in an urban setting.

In another recent study, Polish participants spent 15 minutes gazing at either a wintertime urban forest or an unforested urban landscape. The trees in the forest had straight trunks and no leaves (because of winter), and there was no other shrubbery below the trees—in other words, no green; the urban landscape consisted of buildings and roads. Before and after, the participants filled out questionnaires related to their moods and emotions. Those who gazed at a winter forest reported significantly better moods, more positive emotions, more vigor, and a greater sense of personal restoration afterwards than those who gazed at the urban scene.

Another study looked at older urban dwellers and found that those who lived in close proximity to wooded landscapes had healthier function in the amygdala region of the brain — a clustered set of neurons that play an important role in regulating emotions, especially fear and anxiety.

 

3.TREES BENEFIT OUR IMMUNE SYSTEMS

Specifically, one study found that elderly patients suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease experienced decreases in perforin and granzyme B expressions, as well as decreased pro-inflammatory cytokines—all related to better immune function—after they visited forests rather than urban areas. Though it’s not clear exactly why this would be, a prior study suggests that trees may improve immunity thanks to certain aromatic compounds that trees release.

 

4.TREES HELP OUR HEART HEALTH 

In one study, participants walked in a forest one day and an urban environment another day, and researchers measured how the two walks impacted their bodies. In comparison to the urban environment, walking in trees lowered people’s blood pressure, cortisol levels, pulse rates, and sympathetic nervous system activity (related to stress), while increasing their parasympathetic nervous system activity (related to relaxation).  All of these physiological markers are tied to better heart health, suggesting that walking in the woods improves cardiovascular function.

 

5.TREES HELP YOU RECOVER FASTER

If you have someone who is recovering from an illness or operation, try to make sure they get the room with a view of a tree, if there is one! Patients at a Pennsylvania hospital who were recovering from gall bladder operations recovered faster when their rooms had a view of trees than those who were just looking out at a building. The research by Dr. Roger Ulrich covered the years from 1972-1981. In general, it was found that those looking at the brick wall needed more painkillers, more encouragement and they usually took a day longer to recover than those who were lucky enough to have a room with a tree view.

 

6.TREES HELP FIGHT OBESITY AND DIABETES

Researchers in Toronto found that the more trees on the block, the less likely people would end up being obese or have diabetes. They are also likely to live 7 years longer. All this data is correlational, researchers say but trees in the neighborhood can encourage people to go out and take more exercise. Just 10 extra trees on a city block can make a difference.

 

7.LIVING NEAR TREES HELP YOU SLEEP BETTER

Many health experts are concerned that lack of sleep is leading to obesity, poor health and even divorce.  Prof. Diana Grigsby-Toussaint from the University of Illinois has led a research study on trees and health. Data from 250,000 Americans was used. It was found that those who lived near green areas were sleeping better, especially if they were over 65 years of age.

 

8.TREES HELP THE ECOSYSTEM

Trees are a critical element in the collective effort for a more sustainable environment. Functioning ecosystems with healthy trees and vegetation help with stormwater management, pollutant filtration, and soil and water conservation.

 

9.TREES HELP YOU SAVE ON ELECTRICITY

Trees provide you the shade and needed wind during summer months saving you from extra expenses resulting from the need to turn on air conditioning units.  By carefully positioning trees, you can save 25 to 35 percent in energy consumption per year.

 

10.TREES MAKE YOUR PROPERTY VALUE GROW

Towering trees on your property provide more than beauty — they increase the value of your home. Several recent nationwide surveys show that mature trees in a well-landscaped yard can increase the value of a house by 7 percent to 19 percent.
