Dealing with Summer Allergies

Have allergies got you down this season? Living in a big city, I sometimes find it hard to walk outside in warmer months. I always bring my sunglasses to protect my eyes.. but what's protecting my lungs? Nature of course! Trees have been shown to help mitigate air pollution by preventing asthma and other respiratory diseases.The Wisconsin DNR writes, 'one study found that in 2010, trees removed 17.4 million tons of air pollution across the US, which prevented 850 human deaths and 670,000 cases of acute respiratory symptoms.' There are no words to thank trees for all the ozone and particulate matter they remove from our earth on a daily-yearly basis. Read this article here from our friends at Wisconsin DNR to learn about how trees may be a low-cost solution to cleaner air!
