Reduce Heat: Shade can easily be taken for granted. Not all shade is the same. Trees or timber from trees reduces the effects of heat. The atmospheric thermodynamics of shade is largely varied in its degree of relief from the sun. The material that blocks the heat of the sun is key to pristine shade. Trees or timber from trees is the only material that naturally regulates temperatures to cool off in the heat and warm up in the cold and is native to outdoor ecosystems.
Deflects Sound Pollution: Trees deflect sound waves through the process of reflection and absorption. Lining trees along fences and highways can create a quieter neighborhood. Larger leaves are the most efficient in deflecting the noise. Leaves blowing in the wind is sound as well, but it is nature’s music thas has been shown to have psychological benefits.
Promotes Human Health: Researchers are repeatedly finding evidence to support how nature – and particularly trees – improve our mental and physical health. Trees support relaxation and reduce stress.
Reduces Flooding: Trees absorb water and can slow down about 35% run-off of stormwater. This means fewer costs in maintaining and repair of sewage systems.
Cleans pollutions: Trees absorb odors, remove pollutants such as nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxides, ammonia, and ozone, filtering and refreshing for a cleaner atmosphere.
Lessens Energy Emissions: With trees, there is less use of electrical power and emissions from the combustion of waste materials. “The shading of those trees on buildings reduce your air conditioning costs. Take those trees away; now your buildings are heating up, you’re running your air conditioning more, and you’re burning more fuel from the power plants, so the pollution and emissions go up.” – David Nowark of the USDA Forest Service, Northern Research Station.
Water Quality Is Improved: Trees are a vital part of every infrastructure, whether it is an urban, suburban or rural area. They are designed by nature to filter and clean water.
Habitat for Wildlife: Trees gives shelter, #shade, and food for birds and other small animals. They provide an ideal environment for a variety of plants and flowers to flourish.
Beautifies Landscape: Trees can create a beautiful and neat appearance, improving the looks and value of a property.
