Union City Municipal Code - Section 12.16
"It is for the best interest of the City of Union City and of the citizens and public thereof that a comprehensive plan for the design, installation and maintenance of ornamental trees, shrubs and other landscape amenities on and in, upon or which may overhang public streets, rights-of-way and utility easements within the City of Union City should be developed and established."
The goal of the City's Urban Forestry Program is to encourage an attractive and healthy urban forest to benefit the community. Among the many benefits trees provide . . .
- One acre of trees produces enough oxygen for 18 people every day.
- A single large tree can release up to 400 gallons of water into the atmosphere each day.
- Mature trees improve our aesthetic environment, absorb noise, are traffic calming, reduce stress and crime, and create a peaceful place to relax or socialize.
- Trees improve property values. The addition of trees and shrubs can increase property values by 10 - 20%.
