Description: This report quantifies benefits and costs for typical large-, medium-, small-stature, deciduous trees (Fraxinus uhdei, Prosopis chilensis, Acacia farnesiana), as well as a conifer (Pinus halapensis). The analysis assumed that trees were planted in a residential yard site or a public (street/park) site, a 40-year time frame, and a 60% survival rate. Tree care costs were based on findings from a survey of municipal and commercial arborists. Benefits were calculated using tree growth curves and numerical models that consider regional climate, building characteristics, air pollutant concentrations, and prices.
