I would like to express my opinion about the state of trees in Oak Park.

The vast number of trees in Oak Park is one of the biggest reasons why Oak Park is so great. When there are no trees, a landscape is created that resembles a desert. This is because shade is limited, and there is less oxygen. There is less oxygen because trees absorb the carbon dioxide we breathe out and transform it into breathable oxygen. This results in Oak Park having lots of high-quality air and shade.

On top of this, green is one of the best colors to have in a landscape. It is, of course, a natural color, the color of grass and leaves. But green is also a subtle and calm color, leading to lowered stress levels.

Put simply, trees result in a bettered environment due to their calming qualities.
