Go Green – Plant Trees
Trees Create Green Living
A thoughtful way to live a greener life is to make your landscape eco-friendly and plant trees. Planting a tree is one of the most immediate green steps you can take as trees absorb CO2 and other dangerous gasses while replenishing the atmosphere with oxygen.
Canopy trees, and Deciduous trees that grow tall and full in the summer, will add shade to your home and help it stay cool in the summer months. They will also allow your home to absorb warm sun light in winter. In addition to being good for the environment, adding these trees to your landscape is an energy saving step that will lower the cost of cooling and heating your home.
Another group of trees to think about planting are Fruit bearing trees which will also absorb dangerous gasses while replenishing oxygen. A big plus in adding some fruit trees to your garden space? Your garden will become much more productive. While enjoying your favorite fruits and saving a little money at the grocery store, you can also donate any extra fruit you grow to those in need. Not only will you help others in your immediate community, but you’ll show by example how Green Living can give back, both locally and globally.
