Tree As An Ecosystem In Urban Environments

Saša Jeram

Slovenia

Trees in the city have a positive effect on the well-being of people in the town. They contribute to the health, beauty, and functionality of cities, city centres, and the urban environment. Trees in the city affect the temperature and humidity, retain dust particles, reduce noise and wind, and clean the air. All of the above contribute so significantly to the quality of the living environment of people, animals and plants in the city. Trees give people a feeling of relaxation and comfort and, last but not least, they offer shade in which we all like to take refuge on hot summer days. We are also looking for shade from trees to park vehicles during the summer heat. The trees in the city are, in addition to all the comfort that the inhabitants of the city centre offer, also a place where animals take refuge. However, for both residents and animals to enjoy the positive effects of trees, we need to take proper and regular care of them. Careful planning is therefore required for new tree plantings in cities. It is necessary to check all the conditions that the tree will have at a given location and choose the right type of tree accordingly. The article would maintain existing trees in the city centre and plan new plantings.
