Shrubs and Trees

“The net cooling effect of a young, healthy tree is equivalent to ten room-size air conditioners operating 20 hours a day.” —U.S. Department of Agriculture, via Arbor Day Foundation

Fall colorTrees and shrubs have very practical applications in the landscape:

  • Planted next to your house, they will block cold winds and the hot sun to reduce your heating and cooling cost.
  • Strategically located shrubs and trees provide effective privacy screening.
  • All trees and shrubs create necessary habitat for birds and fruiting varieties provide food in addition to shelter.
  • Mature trees add value to your home. The Council of Tree and Landscape Appraisers states that “a mature tree can often have an appraised value of between $1,000 and $10,000.”
