Health & Other Benefits of Trees
Trees Help the Environment. Trees positively impact the environment in a number of ways. They reduce pollution from the air and noise pollution, filter water and absorb rainfall; which can lessen the devastation of flooding and storm-waters. Trees can also attract wildlife that can offer food and shelter for them. The air quality is improved as the trees absorb harmful gases and toxins and release oxygen into the atmosphere. Trees will remove the heat-trapping greenhouse gas carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and oxygen will be replaced. A single tree, in fact, can reduce an average of 300 pounds of carbon dioxide in a year.
Trees Increase Outdoor & Indoor Comfort. During the warmer months, the trees provide shade, to cool the area down to enjoy the summer air. Additionally, the area is cooled as the trees take in carbon dioxide, which is a heat-trapping greenhouse gas and release oxygen. Wind is reduced as the trees act as a barrier, which in the cooler months can help lessen the bite of the cold. Additionally, the shade produced from strategically placed trees in your landscaping can help cut down cooling cost as it blocks the pounding sun and help cool your home. Evergreens can deflect harsh winds during the colder seasons that will reduce heating costs. Trees can also provide places for hammocks, picnics, tire swings, and other sources of entertainment. Not only can trees increase the comfort of both outdoors and indoors but it can contribute to outdoor activities.
Trees Increase Home & Property Value. Even if you have no intention of moving in the conceivable future, trees in your landscape can increase the value of your home. Mature trees are an irreplaceable asset especially.
