For example, it is known that trees can cool the streets by up to 10 degrees with the shade that they provide. Also many of the trees on campus are extremely beneficial because they are preventing erosion of the soil due to things such as rain, they keep the soil in place. It is also worth noting that some of the trees on campus provide edible fruits which may be eaten. 4.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
