Concrete and asphalt in urban areas are impermeable. Storm water courses through the solid landscape as runoff and collects pollutants and sediment that accumulate in the waterways. Urban trees reduce N and P in runoff and grow larger as a result. http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2015/11/151125130017.htm
