Urban Forestry Infographic

September 19, 2018 - More and more people live in cities and spend 25% less time in nature as compared to just 20 years ago. We live in a world that makes it difficult for us to shut off, go outside, and relax for a second.

Although it can be hard to get outside during the busy workweek, research shows that people who spend more time outdoors are not only calmer and healthier but also smarter and more successful at work.
