Landscaping & Tree Care
Did you know… WPB SSA #33 with the help of Bartlett Tree Experts inventoried all of our trees in the SSA district and created a management plan for caring for them. Through the creation of the tree management plan, we have learned that the 1700+ trees in the SSA are valued at $3,024,000 and provide environmental services worth $120,000 per year by:
- reducing storm water runoff (Our community’s trees intercept more than 1.1 million gallons of rainfall a year!)
- providing summer cooling
- helping to conserve energy
- improving air quality
- reducing carbon dioxide
- providing an economic boost - Research shows that shoppers will travel farther to visit and linger in a business district with high-quality trees, spending 9-12% more in these areas.
