What Good are Trees Anyway?
Trees can add value to your home, help cool your home and neighborhood, break the cold winds to lower your heating costs, increase your property value, and provide food for wildlife:
1.) The Oxygen Cycle
Remember the oxygen cycle? We breathe out Carbon dioxide which trees and plants take in through their leaf tissue and convert back into oxygen. This is quite an amazing process. Remember, all trees have leaves; they just look different depending on the variety of tree- some have needles, some frons, some leaves.
2.) Air Filtration
The leaves of trees and plants act as an air filter, filtering out certain pollutants and making our air cleaner.
3.) The Power of Shade
Why do people sit under a tree when it is hot? Because trees provide shade and can drop the air temperature as much as 20 degrees. Think of how big of a difference that makes when watching a game outside or doing yard work.
4.) Soil Erosion
Trees help prevent soil erosion. The fine roots hold onto the soil particles and larger roots act as barriers to prevent the soil from washing away. The leaves soften the pounding of rains onto the soil.
5.)The Protection of Roots
The roots also absorb dangerous chemicals from spills, farms, and stormwater run-off.
6.) Sound Protection
Trees make great sound barriers, as they break up sound waves from traffic and other noise creators.
7.) Wind Protection
Trees also make great windbreakers when planted close together and interspersed with a variety of evergreen and deciduous trees.
8.) Real Estate Value
Trees add value to your real estate. Mature trees on a property can increase your property value by up to 15% compared to properties with very small trees or none at all.
