How Good Are Trees?

If we all expect to continue receiving the amazing benefits of trees now and in the future, then protecting and promoting tree canopy where most of us live is crucial.

  • Precious summer shade and reduced urban heat island effect
  • Habitat and food for our native animals including our birds + insects
  • Mitigation of climate change
  • Cleaner air
  • Lower temperatures + energy costs in our homes
  • Noise and wind buffers
  • Reduced stormwater runoff and erosion
  • Increased appeal and value of our properties
  • Better water retention
  • Improved physical and mental health and wellbeing
  • More beautiful parks and neighbourhoods
  • Somewhere really cool to climb

Join WATCA and help us send the message to the State Government that Western Australians care about our tree canopy.
