Just three blocks of trees in Champlain Park bring an annual flow of financial benefits to residents of $41,924 (using the USDA Forestry Services i-Tree benefits calculator). Imagine the flow of benefits of all the trees in the neighbourhood!

The Neighbourwoods in Champlain Park tree inventory has produced two interesting infographics, showing the size and diversity of trees, and the financial benefits to residents in the form of energy saved, storm water filtered, air quality improved, and carbon stored. Check it out, and save by saving our trees!
