Glasgow's trees are one of the City's major assets, a vital component of its urban landscape. They add colour and interest to the townscape, provide a sense of scale, soften the visual impact of the built environment, and contribute greatly to the city's character and amenity. 

They are a valuable wildlife habitat and benefit the environment by filtering dust, wind and noise, absorbing and diffusing heavy rainfall, contributing to urban 'cooling' and by helping to recycle harmful 'greenhouse' gases.
