Landscapes: For landscapes, trees can come in very handy as beautiful objects in nature. They can be strategically placed to enhance an existing section of your property or block our certain negative elements. In landscape design, trees are used to frame and mask views.
Energy Conservation: Depending on where your tree is placed, it can play a large part in saving you money on the electric bill during the warmer months. Trees provide plenty of shade if facing a certain side of the home that is used to absorbing all of the heat. This provides summer cooling, therefore less energy is used on air conditioning.
Noise Pollution: Trees and shrubs can successfully lower or abate noise pollution near a living area. For this to work properly, the trees and shrubs need to be densely placed together. It won’t work if there are just a few here and there.
Street Shading: Communities with tree lined streets are far more pleasant to walk within during the summer months because of the shade the trees bring. In an effort to get out of the sun, tree-lined sidewalk areas could be 10°F to 40°F cooler.
