Trees aren’t just beautiful: They’re an essential part of the Earth’s ecosystem. Without the oxygen provided by trees, life would most certainly not be sustainable on our beautiful planet. In short, you can never go wrong with planting trees. Here are the top five reasons you should plant trees.
The summer sun is notoriously intense. By planting a few trees in your landscape, you’ll be able to enjoy a beautiful day in your backyard without coming face-to-face with heat and harmful rays.
2. Wind protection
The wind has a way of ruining backyard picnics and damaging homes. When you plant a tree or two in your landscape, you’ll protect yourself and your home from the negative effects of the wind. Also, who doesn’t love the peaceful sound of wind rustling through the leaves?
A tree is always great for beautifying your yard. They’re tall, majestic and can provide balance in a landscape that is made up of mostly short plants. Once you plant a tree in your yard, the neighbors are bound to notice.
4. Good for the environment
These days, too many trees are being cut down and not enough are being planted. In addition to the boost in oxygen, trees slow down water runoff, prevent soil erosion and have many more positive effects.
5. Property value
If you plant a tree in your landscape, you’ll also be able to measure the benefits in dollars. Trees can give a property a bit more beauty and prestige. Not only will your own property value increase, so too will your neighbors’ properties as you do your part to beautify the community.
