Poor air quality is a common problem in many urban areas. It can lead to human health problems and reduced visibility, and it can impair the health of plants and wildlife. The urban forest can help improve air quality by removing pollutants and by reducing air temperature through shading and transpiration. Trees also emit volatile organic compounds that can indirectly contribute to ozone formation. The USDA Forest Service's Urban Forest Effects (UFORE) Model was used to better understand air pollution removal by urban trees in Gainesville, Florida.
