Trees are in the median of road can absorb dust to reduce air pollution, especially dust particles. Determination of leaf samples was carried out using a purposive sampling method in two median of road locations. Dust measurements were carried out using the experimental laboratory method, namely by the gravimetric method. The results showed dust absorption in the first location sequentially from the highest to the lowest was tanjung (Mimusops elengi), nangka (Artocarpus heterophylla), glodokan tiang (Polythea longifolia), and mahoni (Swietenia mahagoni), while in the second location was nangka, tanjung, glodokan tiang, and mahoni. The difference in the level of dust absorption on trees between the two locations is caused by the presence of lower plants such as grass and the number of vehicles passing in the second location is higher than the first location. The absorption of dust by nangka and tanjung is highest in both locations because the surface of nangka leaves is rough and hairy, while the tanjung shape curves upward with a wavy leaf edge. The city government should plant a median of roads with trees to reduce dust particles in the air.
