"It is all about community" states Jeffrey Halpern, Vice President-Branch Manager of the full-service Realty firm, "and this organization as well as Madison's Shade Tree Management Board, Parks Advisory Committee and the Garden Club of Madison, play a vital role in keeping Madison green and clean."

According to the I-Tree program, last year the the street trees of Madison:  removed 7,143 pounds of carbon dioxide from the air; removed 53,444 pounds of five different pollutants; retained 69,220 gallons of water that otherwise would have run-off; added in aesthetic terms alone $309,621 to the value of Madison properties; and saved $304,255 in heating and cooling energy costs.

"Trees play a role in our lives every day" continues Halpern.  "especially in our business as it can add or detract market value of a home"
