Just how beneficial are trees in cooling your home?
I've reported this fact before and have highlighted this again. That is truly amazing! I can attest to this. We rarely run our air conditioner because of all the trees around our home.
“Trees properly placed around buildings can reduce air conditioning needs by 30 percent and can save 20–50 percent in energy used for heating.” —USDA Forest Service
The way you plant a tree is very important to its health and growth rate. Investigate the soil at your tree-planting site. Loosen the soil at your planting site to a depth of at least a foot and then remove it. Follow our tree expert’s recommendations for adding organic matter or fertilizer if necessary. When trees shade your yard, the yard needs less watering and the air around your home is cooler.
