We know we need forests — they provide a myriad of benefits that we simply can’t live without. But, urban forests are equally important in many respects! The trees within our cities not only provide health and economic benefits to residents, but they simply making city living a bit more beautiful. Below is a collection of photographs by Chuck Fazio, our Artist-in-Residence, taken in urban cities. Sometimes, it’s nice to simply stop…and take in the beauty that trees provide in the backdrop of urban living.
