It’s been estimated that just residential homes in the USA use up around 22% of the energy consumed today. Half of these costs can be attributed to the cooling and heating. Climate can be heavily affected in a positive way by the strategic planting of trees around your property.
Believe it or not, during the summer they can provide shade therefore leading to lower air conditioning usage. This naturally results in a much lower cooling bill. During the wintertime, they can shield your home against harsh cold winds and keep things a bit warmer. This leads to lighter usage of your heating system and a reduction of cost in the utility bill.
All while this is happening you also get to be surrounded by an incredibly beautiful landscape of trees.
