The increases of transportation everyday have made multiple effects especially for human health. Based on the effects appeared by noise, there were three steps could be done to prevent, to reduce, or to control it. First, noise control at the source of noise, second, noise control at the line, and third, noise control for the receiver (human).This research focus on noise control at the source of noise by plants. The purpose of this research was to investigate the traffic noise attenuation by vegetation. The noise was measured with Sound Level Meter and was taken at two areas, control area without vegetation and deal area with vegetation. Measurement was done in busy days and weekday in the morning, midday, and afternoon. The measurement repeated as many as three. The observation showed that the traffic noise in control area ranging from 77.3-79.4 dBA, whereas in deal area traffic noise ranging from 56.3-59.4 dBA. In this case, vegetation could reduce the traffic noise as many as 20-21 dBA although the observation result over quality standard which defined by The Ministry of Environmentno. 48/1996, that was 65 dBA for office and commerce (control area), and 55 dBA for housing and settlement (deal area).
