    Tree Inequality Is Worse in the Suburbs
    Rob McDonald, Washington, DC

    Urban trees and their canopy cover provide many benefits for urban residents, reducing air pollutant concentrations, mitigating stormwater runoff, maintaining water quality, encouraging physical recreation, and improving mental health.
