Trees are beautiful and enhance a property’s landscaping, but did you know all the other benefits they offer to us in Palm Harbor and around the world?
- Trees Provide Oxygen
Mature trees can provide enough oxygen for 18 people for one year from an acre.
- Trees Provide Shade
Shade trees help keep your home and yard cooler in the summer heat. Here are eight of the most popular shade trees in Palm Harbor.
- Trees Clean the Air
Trees clean the air by absorbing odors and pollutant gases such as nitrogen oxides, ammonia, sulfur dioxide, and ozone. Trees filter particulates out of the air by trapping them on their leaves and bark.
- Trees Support Wildlife
Trees provide a canopy and habitat for wildlife. Urban species such as oak and Sycamore trees provide excellent urban homes for bees, birds, possums, and squirrels.
- Trees Combat Climate Change
Climate change is in the news more and more speaking about the excess CO2 (carbon dioxide) that is building up in our atmosphere. Trees help to absorb CO2, storing, and removing the carbon while they also help to release oxygen back into the air. Did you know that an acre of mature trees absorbs the same amount of CO2 produced when you drive your car 26,000 miles in one year?
- Trees Conserve Energy
Three trees placed strategically around a single-family home can substantially cut summer air conditioning needs. We reduce carbon dioxide and other pollution emissions by reducing the energy demand for cooling our houses with trees.
- Trees Save Water
Shade from trees helps to slow down the water evaporation from lawns.
- Trees Help Prevent Water Pollution
Trees help to prevent stormwater from carrying pollutants to the ocean by reducing runoff. Rainfall flows down a tree’s trunk and into the earth underneath the tree.
- Trees Help Prevent Soil Erosion
Trees help to slow the runoff and hold soil in place on hillsides and stream slopes.
- Trees Provide Food
Apple and fruit trees feed humans, birds, and wildlife. A single apple tree can produce up to 15-20 bushels of fruit per year, and it can be planted on a small urban lot.
- Trees Mark the Seasons
Look outside to see what season we are in — winter, spring, summer, or fall? Just look at the trees.
- Trees Block Things
Trees can are planted to mask parking lots, concrete walls, and unsightly views. They can block noise from nearby streets and freeways, and create an eye-soothing canopy of green. Trees absorb dust and wind and reduce glare.
- Trees Provide Wood
All over the planet, trees can be harvested for fuel and craft wood.
- Trees Increase Property Values
Well-kept trees and professional landscaping on your property and in your neighborhood can raise property values. Beautiful tree-lined streets are an asset in a neighborhood.
