Healthy Trees

​The City of Salem is proud of its trees. They are a beautiful addition to our city and have a number of environmental benefits. Not only do our trees absorb carbon dioxide and reduce soil erosion, but their leaves and needles act as air filters by capturing dust and other pollution. Shade from our trees help cool streets and sidewalks, reduce glare from buildings, and absorb some noise. ​​​
