Trees do strengthen urban communities. You have only got to look at he price
of houses in areas where mature street trees are prevalent!.

Something about chickens and eggs comes to mind here. Trees in cities,
in this one any way, tend to be more prevalent in more affluent, low
density areas. Where there is cheap, high density housing there is
little room for trees.

Do trees reduce domestic violence, or simply exist in areas where other
social considerations make it less prevalent?

Do trees push up house prices, or simply exist in areas where house
prices are high any way?
