DAY 11

"In 50 years one tree recycles more than $37,000 worth of water, provides $31,000 worth of erosion control, $62,000 worth of air pollution control, and produces $37,000 worth of oxygen."

"Trees help prevent city flooding by catching raindrops and offsetting runoff caused by buildings and parking lots."
