One Person, One Tree is an innovative program that aims to increase Orlando’s urban tree canopy to 40 percent by providing residents with free trees.

Reduce Energy Cost
Trees planted in the right places around your home can reduce air conditioning needs by 30 percent.

Reduce Urban Heat
The net cooling effect of a young, healthy tree is equivalent to 10 room-sized air conditioners operating 20 hours a day.

Clean the Air
One acre of forest produces enough oxygen over a year for 18 people.

Property Value
A healthy, mature tree can add up to $10,000 to your home’s value.

Habitats for Wildlife
Trees provide shelter, food and places for wildlife to raise their young.

Reduce Driving Speed
A study in downtown Toronto showed that crashes declined 5-20 percent on streets with trees or planters along them.
