Planting trees is one of the easiest ways to combat climate change and celebrate Earth Day on April 22.
Research indicates that a prevalence of trees is linked to safer neighborhoods, less urban heat and increased property values. In addition, trees produce oxygen to help clean the air, provide a wildlife habitat and reduce storm water runoff.
Selecting the correct location for a new tree is important both for the success of the tree and energy conservation.
- Locate trees to provide summer shade to the west and east windows.
- Plant trees to provide summer shade for patios, driveways and air conditioners.
- Use deciduous trees on the south side of buildings as the bare branches of these solar-friendly trees allow the most winter sunlight to filter through.
