The Benefits of Planting a Tree

Trees have longevity, not only do they produce shade, but many health magazines are promoting that a walk through the forest can change our moods to one of relaxation and help reduce our stress levels, that it promotes a better feeling of well-being.

Other Benefits Include:

  • Shelters and protects against strong winds
  • Can help insulate us from the cold or cool us down from strong heat
  • Reduces our energy bills
  • Purifies the air by filtering dust and absorbing carbon monoxide, dangerous gases and heavy metals and in turn releases oxygen
  • Absorbs noise
  • Conserves water and prevents soil erosion
  • Provides privacy
  • Can increase property values by up to 20%
