Energy conservation

Trees contribute many economic benefits such as improving the value of real estate and reducing heating and cooling costs when strategically placed to provide shade or as windscreens around buildings. USDA researchers have established that the net cooling effect of one healthy tree is equivalent to 10 room-sized air conditioners operating 20 hours a day! Trees planted near scorching-hot parking lots can reduce temperatures under their canopies by as much as 12 degrees Fahrenheit. All of this cooling generates an overall energy savings for home and commercial building owners. The hidden benefit of this reduction in energy usage is reduced power plant emissions.

Recreation, relaxation

Woody plants are especially important for restoring the natural harmony that is often lost in urban settings. Landscapes with plenty of trees and shrubs draw in birds and other wildlife, providing them with homes and food. While we accept that trees connect us to the natural environment and improve our surroundings and quality of life, we sometimes forget that trees create the cool, protected sites we seek for recreation and relaxation. They provide pleasant, special places we like to visit such as forests and parks. Stress reduction is an important health benefit that is often forgotten when considering the value of trees.

In the Tri-Cities, the 23,000-plus publicly managed street trees intercept 19 million gallons of storm water annually, a service worth more than $96,000 to the city. Consider that same service being carried out by thousands of privately owned landscape trees throughout the city of Boise, and you can appreciate the magnitude of the service trees provide in a single community.

Oxygen production, CO2 absorption

Trees occupy considerable space and, along with large shrubs, are major components in any landscape. They serve many purposes like providing shade and beauty, but trees are more important than that. Trees are essential to life on earth, since they affect the very air we breathe by producing oxygen and absorbing and removing large amounts of carbon dioxide and other pollutant gases from the atmosphere. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), 1 acre of forest annually absorbs 6 tons of carbon dioxide and releases 4 tons of oxygen, enough to meet the annual oxygen needs of 18 adults.

Ensuring adequate future water resources will require conservation and stewardship on the part of southwestern Idaho’s residents. Studies have shown that as much as 60% of the overall water used by homeowners is used outdoors, with the largest portion being applied to landscapes and lawns. Although very few tree species are truly xeric (needing no irrigation), some trees are naturally more water-thrifty than others and can help a gardener reduce water usage in the landscape.

Selecting adapted, water-conserving plants, including trees, is the first step in becoming a good water steward. Next is learning how to irrigate trees and landscapes to conserve water while maintaining plant health. This publication provides guidance on choosing adapted tree species for the region and irrigating efficiently.

Water and soil conservation

Trees play a large role in water conservation as they intercept and store water. They stabilize soil with their extensive root systems, reducing soil erosion and runoff and thus improving water quality. Wooded areas conserve and naturally filter water, recharging the ground water supply and preventing the transport of sediments and chemicals into streams.
