Landscaping For Energy Conservation
Energy Conservation; Buildings; Passive Solar
Because of their long life, trees can give your environment a sense of permanence and stability. They can help keep your air supply fresh by trapping and filtering dust, removing carbon dioxide, and releasing oxygen. Trees can reduce noise pollution, lower temperatures aroundyour home and reduce soil erosion. Furthermore, trees beautify our gardens, streets and parks, and please our senses with interesting shapes, patterns and colors. They can increase the property value of your home and generally enhance the quality of life in a community. Every homesite should include several ornamental trees.
