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."


  1. Tree's what would we do without them? There is nothing better on a summer day than sitting under a nice big shade tree and enjoying the scenery. Nice to know that they are so useful

  2. interesting facts...does that mean that C.R. doesn't have enough trees to offset a flood? ;)
