This is the season to show your thanks for all sorts of things in your life. We just celebrated Thanksgiving and Christmas and the season for thanks should continue! Most people know trees are important and will partner with a tree service company to care for them, but there are many reasons trees benefit your life that you may not have ever thought about. Taking care of trees is good for the environment but they help us out so much more than that!
Milam’s Tree Service has prepared just four of the many reasons you should be thankful for trees.
Trees keep you healthy: The U.S. Forest Service has studied how trees affect respiratory distress. When they looked at what effect it had, they found that 670,000 cases of acute respiratory symptoms were alleviated by trees. They also found that 850 lives were saved because of trees. Trees are one of the only ways that pollutants are removed from the environment. The U.S Forest Service also did a study in 1984 that found that patients who were around trees were able to heal faster and needed less pain medication than those that weren’t.
Trees Lower Energy Bills: It may not seem like it, but having trees on your property can help reduce the amount of energy that you use and in return means that you are spending less money as well. Full grown trees reduce how often the air conditioner runs because they shade the house and keep it cooler than if it was sitting in the hot sun all day.
Trees Increase Property Value: If you go to purchase a home and see that the property is barren, you are probably not willing to pay as much as you would for a home that has beautiful landscaping and especially majestic trees. Trees add a wonderful curb appeal and value to the home.
Trees are a Stress Reducer: Everyone loves the holiday season. It is a great time to enjoy your family and get together with people that you love. It can however, also bring a lot of stress. A study that has been done in Japan shows that being surrounded by trees reduces anger and stress and instead leaves people feeling happier and more at peace.
