Trees in the 24:1

benefits and Goals for our community

A new Look at our urban trees

Tree-filled communities have lower utility costs, better air quality, and less runoff from storms. Residents’ health and well-being are better. Rates of crime are lower. How do we know all this? Through studies like the one that’s happening now in the 24:1 Community

$120,000 in EPA grant funding over two years

6,472 trees on 24:1 public land

910,000 square feet of leaf surface area

$480,000+ total yearly eco benefits

$120,000 in EPA grant funding over two years

6,106 trees on 24:1 public land

910,000 square feet of leaf surface area

$100 economic and utility benefits per tree

The Plan

Beyond Housing is launching 24:1 Project Clear the Air to study the types of trees, their age and condition, species diversity, locations for new plantings, and more. The two-year, $120,000 project will also educate residents on trees’ health benefits.

Thank you to all the 24:1 Clean the Air project partner organizations and communities including our partnering cities of Bellerive, Bel-Nor, Greendale, Pasadena Hills, and Vinita Park.
