Trees as Sound Barriers

It is a well-known fact that noise can reach unhealthy levels in urban areas. Cities across the world have acknowledged the impacts of noise pollution and enacted by-laws and best practices to battle this increasing environmental issue.

Trees and other planted sound barriers serve to soften the visual effect of a barrier, as opposed to a concrete formation or other purpose-built structure, while still reducing the reverberation of sound.
