CITIES WERE A MISTAKE:

Living Near A Lot Of Trees Makes You Feel 7 Years Younger (And $10,000 Richer) (Adele Peters, 7/17/15, Co.exist)

A new study found that living on a street with 10 more trees than average (both on the street and in people's yards) makes you feel as healthy as if you were seven years younger--or as if you were making an extra $10,000 a year.

Researchers already knew that living around green spaces makes people happier, safer, and that greenery can help reduce diseases like asthma by sucking up pollution. But the new study goes deeper to examine the benefits tree by tree.
