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.
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.
