Shade and Fruit Trees are GardenWise
Environment and Energy Saving Tips — Plant Trees
A thoughtful way to live a greener life is to make your landscape eco-friendly and plant trees. The addition of a tree in your land- scape is an immediate green step you can take as trees absorb CO2 and other dangerous gasses while they replenish 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.
Fruit bearing trees will also absorb dangerous gasses while replenishing oxygen, and a plus is your garden becomes more productive. While enjoying your favorite fruits and saving a little money at the grocery store, you can also donate any extra fruit to those in need. Not only will you help others in your immediate community, but you’ll show by example how Green Living and the simple act of planting some trees can give back, both locally and globally.
