The Benefits of Trees
It sounds like a silly question; however it may be the most common
that Arborists receive. The benefits of trees have been studied for centuries.
Since the dawn of time there has been an attachment to trees based on the ideas
of abundance, health, giving, and purity. Trees are our main source of shade. A
home with trees surrounding it will appreciate much cooler inside temperatures
during the summer than a home without. This saves you priceless dollars on your
energy consumption rates. Additionally, trees offer homes an edge in their
ability to be visually appealing. The placement of trees is often strategically
chosen in order to create beautiful homes and businesses. On a more serious
note, trees fight climate change and pollution. Carbon Dioxide is the major
threat to our environment today, however trees absorb this compound and filter
out the bad parts releasing pure oxygen back into the air. In cities like New
York, studies have shown that as trees are removed temperatures rise.
Therefore, we have proven that the more plentiful trees are the more stable
temperatures will be. For homeowners, trees act synergistically with your lawn.
The shade granted by trees can reduce the evaporation of water, which means
your lawn has more time absorb every last nutrient out of rainfall.
