Street trees are a vital asset to the urban environment. Without street trees, the City is a sterile landscape of concrete, brick, steel, and asphalt. Picture the City of Lehi without any trees and you see a pretty grim picture. Trees add beauty and create an environment beneficial to our mental health. Trees absorb carbon dioxide and other gases, and in turn replenish the atmosphere with oxygen for people to breathe. Trees have other benefits that people take for granted. They help cool the streets with shade, lessen glare off buildings and sidewalks, absorb noise, and bring beauty to our community.
