Trees Provide Shade and Cooling
Shade resulting in cooling is what a tree is best known for. Shade from trees reduces the need for air conditioning in summer. Studies have shown that parts of cities without cooling shade from trees can become “heat islands” with temperatures as much as 12 degrees higher than surrounding areas.
Why pruning a tree is beneficial
Health:Our pruning begins with addressing structural problems caused by rubbing branches and limbs that are poorly attached. We also remove large dead wood to give the tree an opportunity to close faster than it normally would in nature. This will ensure a longer life for what is frequently the most historic element of your property. Environmental and esthetic benefits, such as energy savings, storm water runoff reduction, cleaner air, and higher property values, are an average of three times greater than tree care costs.(1)
Beauty:Towering trees on your property provide more than beauty -- they increase the value of your home. Several recent nationwide surveys show that mature trees in a well-landscaped yard can increase the value of a house by 7 percent to 19 percent. The beauty of the trees on your property are a direct reflection of the quality of your property.
SafetyMaintaining your trees properly will reduce the risk of storm damage to your property as well as improving the safety of local drinking water. “The planting of trees means improved water quality, resulting in less runoff and erosion. This allows more recharging of the ground water supply. Wooded areas help prevent the transport of sediment and chemicals into streams.” —USDA Forest Service.
