Money DOES grow on trees!
One medium-sized Monkeypod tree in Honolulu produces $238 a year in benefits we can measure: reduced energy use, reduced air pollutants, reduced storm water runoff, stored CO2, and increased property values. That doesn’t include many other benefits that are harder to measure, like noise reduction, health improvements and enhanced recreation.
