Benefits of Planting Trees

Well-maintained and healthy trees act as our “green infrastructure” and supply our Municipality with many benefits. One important benefit is the reduction of storm water runoff, which reduces the amount of pollutants released into our waterways. Other benefits include cleaner air, cooler temperatures, increased property values, and energy savings.

Public Works is responsible for trimming and removing dangerous and unsafe trees to ensure the safety of our travellers and citizens.  To report a tree that may need to be trimmed or removed, please call 519.360.1998 or email us at CKpw@chatham-kent.ca
