Trees serve a variety of functions that improve health in our communities.
Culminating in June 2015, the Tree Foundation conducted the Green Prescription study to evaluate the connection between tree canopy and human health. The results show that in the urban areas of our region, there is a strong connection between having increased tree canopy and several health outcomes.
In 2006, the Sacramento Tree Foundation and the Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District (SMAQMD) entered into a partnership to evaluate the effects of the urban forest on regional air quality, with the goal of including a voluntary control strategy based on trees in the Sacramento Regional 8-Hour Ozone Attainment and Reasonable Further Progress Plan (the Plan). Once approved, the Plan will become an update to the California State Implementation Plan for Air Quality.
