The presence of trees in cities provides a lot of benefits. They reduce CO2 levels in the atmosphere, remove fine particles resulting from road traffic and heating of buildings, and mitigate the increasingly frequent heatwaves. An urban forest can even reduce temperatures by 5° to 6°C, avoiding serious hardship to people and the environment.

Obtaining these benefits without trees would be considerably more expensive for administrators. If only we were more aware of everything that trees do for us, we would realise how much we need them and we would understand the importance to have one in every corner in our cities.

That is why it is essential to start from an appropriate production planning process which takes into account where the trees will be planted and what they will be used for.
