NY loves trees

Did you now that street trees reduce temperatures, pollution, asthma, heating and cooling costs, crime, vehicular speeds and domestic violence? Even just looking at a picture of a tree lowers blood pressure in a matter of minutes! I learned all this and more at a workshop connected to Million Trees NYC campaign at my local community garden (pardon me, Prospect Heights Community Farm) this morning. They've overseen the planting of 310,000 trees and counting!
