Benefits of Backyard Trees


We think tree houses, tire swings, and curb appeal are reasons enough to plant trees in your yard. But what about cost savings and environmental progress? Trees provide that, too! Check below for other benefits planting trees in your yard would provide.

  • Trees planted west or southwest of your homes can provide shade, helping to save energy and reduce utility bills, especially in the sizzling hot summers we’ve been having lately.
  • Trees absorb water in your yard, which helps control storm water runoff that usually pollutes the area and causes excessive water to sit in your yard.
  • Planting trees helps reduce unwanted sound pollution and benefits the ecosystem in many ways. They cool air and water, reduce negative greenhouse gasses, produce the oxygen we need to breathe, and provide a space for animals to live and feed.
