In the first effort to estimate the overall impact of a city´s urban forest on concentrations of fine particulate pollution (particulate matter less than 2.5 microns, or PM2.5), a U.S. Forest Service and Davey Institute study found that urban trees and forests are saving an average of one life every year per city. In New York City, trees save an average of eight lives every year. Fine particulate air pollution has serious health effects, including premature mortality, pulmonary...

Trees Release Volatile Organic Compounds That Aid In Smog Production
2013-04-26 09:53:33

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online In 2004, a group of Princeton scientists found trees release the volatile organic compound (VOC) isoprene that reacts in the air to form particulate pollution, or smog. However, the mechanism behind this process wasn't known until a new study from scientists at the University of North Carolina (UNC) was released this week showing how isoprene´s reaction to sunlight leads to the formation of harmful air pollution. After isoprene...
