Trees and Downtowns

A couple of paragraphs in todays "Seen & Heard" column in the SHT related recent research that tree-lined streets in downtowns make customers more comfortable shopping and were willing to spend more in these areas.

This research and many more similar reports are described at the University of Washington website.

The SHT article starts by saying: if you want customers to spend money and time in your business - plant a tree.

Good advice for sure!
