Shade trees shield our classrooms, fields and parking lots from scorching summer heat. Shade trees can lower a classroom’s cooling costs by nearly one-third — saving money while keeping students comfortable

Trees and green spaces can improve our health and students are more likely to be physically active in areas where trees are plentiful.\

Trees are nature’s way of cleaning our air and tree leaves absorb pollutants, produce oxygen, and make cleaner air for us to breathe.
