How Trees Calm Us Down

To try to look at the effects of trees on health. A team of researchers recently conducted a study in Toronto and compared two large data sets in the city and surrounding areas; one set of data measured abundance of trees and green space, the other measured health. A full copy of the study is available here.   

Alex Hutchinson published an article featuring the report and other scientific observations in the July edition of The New Yorker. Fascinating stuff and you can find it here

There's a lot going on out there in the forest and even on our city streets. It's great to read science to back up what we know intuitively - trees are wonderful live-giving things.

We need each other. Hug one today!
