L.A. FOR TREES: ADOPT A TREE, IT'S EASY AND FREE
By planting and taking care of a tree, you can lower temperatures, clean our air, and beautify our communities.
- Make the weather nicer by lowering temperatures by 8-10 degrees, reducing heat-related illnesses
- Improve air quality by removing harmful pollutants — each tree removes 48lbs of CO2 annually (equivalent to taking 10 cars off the road for a year).
- Create shaded public spaces — perfect for walking and bicycling.
- Cool homes and buildings and limits the need for air conditioning.
