In Dallas as in Phoenix, People Look to Trees for Relief from Urban Heat Islands

Summary: 

Dallas and Phoenix are the fastest warming cities in the United States, and while both cities will always be hot, an article published by the Arizona Republic details how these cities are working to balance economic growth and environmental sustainability to reduce temperatures and improve the health and quality of life of its residents. In 2017, the Texas Trees Foundation conducted an Urban Heat Island Management Study of Dallas and its surrounding areas. The study, funded by Alliance Data and considered one of the most comprehensive urban heat studies in the country, found that more than one-third of Dallas is covered in concrete and commercial and residential buildings. The solution? The study found more green spaces, i.e. trees, can offset the concrete and other impervious surfaces in these growing regions. See how planting more trees in both cities is changing and saving lives.
