Benefits to Planting Trees In YOUR Paradise

Trees can be a wonderful advantage to your outdoor paradise. From the shade they provide to the way they filter the air and water, there are many reasons to incorporate trees into your custom designed landscape at the Lake of the Ozarks. Here are just a few reasons to plant trees in your yard any time of the year.

Trees Are Energy Savers

The US Department of Agriculture has found that a young healthy tree can provide a net cooling effect equivalent to ten room-sized air conditioners for over 20 hours a day. That could produce amazing savings for your home if you have just ONE nice tree in your yard. Not to mention, when they are placed strategically in your yard, they can provide and even better service to you. Studies have shown that if a tree is planted on the western side of your home it can reduce your energy bill up to 3 percent in five years, and almost twelve percent in fifteen years! If your trees are planted on the North and West side of your home, it can protect your home against cold winter winds as well.

Trees Benefit the Environment

Trees can not only produce savings on your energy bill, but they can also make the environment cleaner. Trees absorb gasses like nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide, ozone, carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide. Trees can also convert carbon dioxide into oxygen through photosynthesis. To put it in more relative terms, one tree can clean about 330 pounds of carbon dioxide from the air each year, which can provide enough oxygen for a family of four! The roots of a tree can also filter groundwater and can help control runoff and erosion by holding the soil in place.
