Can you imagine a community without trees? There is a reason why cities invest so much in parks. The effect that trees have is unbelievable. So what are the benefits of adding new trees even when your city has some?
Trees provide the air we breath while filtering many of the toxins in the air. A single tree can provide the air for at least a dozen individuals. At the same time, the trees will get rid of carbon dioxide and pollution in the air. This is all done through the tree’s process of photosynthesis.
In the heat of the day, don’t you always wish to be under the shade of a tree. More trees mean greater shade and cool sections around town to thwart the summer heat. Similarly, this helps keep your home cooler so you save on energy costs. In addition, the shade also reduces the need for water in your yard. As a result, you can save on the amount of water for your landscaping when you have more shaded areas.
A great way to prevent flooding and erosion of your yard is to add trees to your landscaping. They act as a barrier and canopy to rain water. Thus, the water runoff is prevented and/or slowed down. At the same time, the impact on the runoff also slows down the rate of pollution in our water supplies.
Tree Care and Maintenance
As you are growing them, it’s important to take proper care and maintenance of them. You should understand the soil and water needs for each type of tree. Also, identify the best location to plant them to maximize the impact they have around your home and neighborhood. We strongly recommend that you contact the certified arborist at Sexy Trees if you have questions or need help with your tree planting needs.
