When it's OK to break wind


Encircling street trees create a wind haven in the city (click to enlarge)

CBDs  are windy places because large city buildings channel the wind and speed it up.


Trees mitigate this because unlike buildings, they're porous - ie they "filter" the wind and slow it down.

Just another good reason to plant more of them.
