Some of the causes of smog are cars, factories, trees and wind. Cars cause smog from their exhaust. Factories cause smog when they burn things and release the smoke into the air. Trees give off some pollution but they breathe in carbon dioxide. Wind blows dust and dirt into the air which contributes some particulates.
