The trees around us are extremely important, so important, in fact, that we need them to survive. They provide oxygen, improve air quality, help conserve water, preserve soil, and support wildlife. This is why we at Pacifique Tree Care are always in support of tree planting.
What’s the best place to start planting trees? Your own property! There are many benefits of adding trees to your property, and in today’s blog, we are going to take a quick look at some of them.
Deciduous trees (the type of trees that lose their leaves in the fall) are perfect for adding some shade to your yard. If you plant these trees on the southern and western sides of your home, you will not only have a reliably comfortable and shady place to relax in the summer, but you can also cut your air conditioning costs.
When you plant trees in your yard, you are also building homes for local habitat. Don’t worry, most of the animals that come to call the trees on your property home will be friendly and cause no damage to you or your property.
Privacy and Sound Control
Depending on the type of trees you plant, they can function like a fence. For example, evergreens (the type of trees that keep their leaves all year) require little maintenance and can be a barrier between you and your neighbors as well as muffle noises, making your property more peaceful.
Trees are integral parts of landscaping and yard design. When properly planted they can significantly improve curb appeal and, therefore, property value. Research shows that homes and neighborhoods with trees along the sidewalk have much higher property values.
