Crop and forest damage

Air pollution can damage crops and trees in a variety of
ways.Ground-level ozone can lead to reductions in agricultural crop and commercial
forest yields, reduced growth and survivability of tree seedlings, and increased plant
susceptibility to disease, pests and other environmental stresses (such as harsh
weather). As described above, crop and forest damage can also result from acid rain
and from increased UV radiation caused by ozone depletion.
