Besides adding beauty to our landscapes, trees help the environment by taking up carbon dioxide, the green-house gas that is such a big driver in climate change." Zepernick added "They provide shade that helps to reduce the energy costs of cooling our homes in summer, acts as windbreaks to help cut winter fuel bills, and provide food and habitat for creatures big and small that share our landscapes."
