How Trees Make a Difference; How They Benefit Your Home & Life
During the growing season, most homeowners are focused on their lawn’s health. While this is important, it is also vital to keep in mind one tall, important plant; your trees. Spending time in your outdoor spaces can have a long list of benefits to you, but when trees are present that list doubles in size. Follow along as we’ll share multiple ways your properties trees are benefiting you, your lawn, and the environment.
Keeps You and Your Home Cool
Did you know according to the US Department of Agriculture, healthy trees have the cooling capacity of 10-bedroom sized AC units? As temperatures rise in the summer, your trees are acting as a protector by providing shade to your property and to your home ensuring you have a cool space to hide from the heat of summer.
Helps Clean Our Air
In Chicago alone, trees remove more than 18,000 tons of air pollution each year. By directly soaking up harmful carbon dioxide in our atmosphere through photosynthesis and indirectly by shading surfaces and reducing temperatures, trees are a simple and smart way to ensure a sustainable world.
Trees Help Tame Stormwater
When natural tree coverage is lost by cities due to land construction, the absorbing effect of vegetation and soil is also lost. Without trees, rain becomes stormwater runoff which can pollute drinking water, reduce property values, and create a degraded living environment.
While the list of benefits for trees can go on, it’s important to make sure that if you choose to incorporate trees into your property that you are providing them with a healthy environment safe from possible insects and diseases.
