Trees Work Hard For Conservation in Urban Environments!

Within “Aesop–s Fables” there is the story of the “City Mouse” and the “Country Mouse.” In this story, the country mouse flees back to his quiet life in the woods, to get away from his cousin–s “hard” life in the city. Well, city trees have a hard life as well and are not able to escape, but they do exhibit great benefits to the urban environment. Urban trees are surrounded by hard impervious surfaces and urban infrastructure, and other conditions that don–t have to be endured by their country cousins that live in forested or other natural rural habitats.
