Plant Trees To Save Energy

If placed properly in the yard, just three trees could save you between $100 and $250 a year in energy costs.

Trees don’t ask for much—dirt, water, sunlight. Yet they provide a wealth of benefits: They improve the air you breathe, cut your energy bills with their shade, provide a home to wildlife, and add beauty and value to your home.

But every year, 3.2 million acres of forest are cut down, according to the Nature Conservancy. Several million more acres are lost to fire, storm, and disease. That’s why planting new trees and protecting the ones we have is so important. You can do your part by

  • Caring for the trees in your yard
  • Supporting tree-planting activities in your community
  • Donating to organizations, such as The Nature Conservancy, which works to preserve the world’s trees and forests, and American Forests.
Trees are important to the Earth. We all know it despite the ongoing political quibbles about climate change.
The earth cannot survive without enough trees. They were here long before us and with any luck they will remain here for a long time to come, like forever!
