Besides the beauty trees offer our landscapes, energy conservation and pollution reduction are also achieved. The Garden Council estimates that one properly watered tree can produce a cooling effect in its lifetime equal to ten room-size air conditioners operating 20 hours a day.
By planting trees that shade your property, you benefit from energy savings in the summer, and if placed correctly, screening from freezing winter winds. In addition, trees absorb atmospheric gases along with fine particles of dust and soot and become living air scrubbers. Trees are as beautiful as they are functional; they symbolize new life in the spring, and provide a beautiful palate of color in the fall. It all adds up to one fact: trees are good for you visually, environmentally and economically.
