Trees are the most popular plant that we implement into our landscape designs. They are big and beautiful and add great curb appeal to your home. Trees are great for many different reasons and every single reason benefits the quality of life for us. While we may hesitate to plant new trees in the yard because we think it may be too much work or take too long to grow to a mature size, Milam’s Tree Service has prepared the following reasons that are sure to sway you to go ahead and plant that tree.
Trees Clean the Air
One of the great services that trees provide for our living experience is clean air. Trees absorb odors and pollutants like nitrogen oxide, ammonia, and sulfur dioxide. The trees filter out these particulates from the air by trapping them on their leaves and bark. Trees also produce a considerable amount of oxygen. In one year an acre of mature trees can provide enough oxygen for eighteen people!
Trees Shade and Cool Us
Trees are a great ally to have during warm times of the year. Summer months can bring intense heat that has the ability to bring temperatures to a peak from hot streets and sidewalks; making your neighborhood feel a lot hotter than what you want it to be. Trees have the ability to cool a city by up to ten degrees. Trees can do this by shading our homes and streets, breaking up urban heat islands and releasing water vapor into the air through the leaves.
Trees Lower Energy Costs
Trees can save you money, that’s right, trees can make the impact of an energy bill on your wallet feel a little lighter. Several trees placed strategically around a single home can cut summer air conditioning output by up to fifty percent. By cutting down the energy demand for cooling houses, we reduce carbon dioxide and other pollution emissions and power plants.
Trees are a Excellent Food Source
One excellent resource that trees provide humans with is food. We love that food and trees give us some of our favorite treats to eat. An apple tree can provide twenty bushels of apples per year and the apple tree can survive on the smallest urban lot. Peach trees, avocado trees and other delicious snacks come from trees. Not only do the trees provide food for us, but they also feed birds and other wild life.
Trees have the Ability to Heal
One interesting fact about trees is they have the ability to heal. Studies have shown that patients with views of trees from their windows heal faster and with fewer complications. Children that struggle with ADHD show fewer symptoms when they have access to nature. Trees also can reduce the amount of violence. Neighborhoods and houses that are in areas where there are little to no trees have shown a greater percentage of violence than those neighborhoods that have a much more lush and full landscape of trees and other green plants. Trees and landscape help to reduce the level of fear.
