Trees provide many benefits to us such as economics, environmental, and social aspects. After reviewing these advantages, you may consider planting trees around the landscape of your home or business.


Healthy trees on your landscape can help increase the value of your property. Plus, by providing shade to your home or building, you can save money on electric bills by using less electricity, which also helps conserve energy and reduce your home’s consumption of electricity.


Using less electricity means better air quality for everyone. Trees help to purify the air naturally by removing excess carbon. In this day and age, we need all the help that we can get to reduce the amount of pollution in our air. Trees also help reduce water runoff and soil erosion. Without trees, excess rainwater would run directly into our sewer system and increases the chance of flooding within our communities. Tree roots help prevent soil erosion by keeping soil intact.


Go outside during the summer months in Tennessee and you will understand the importance of shade. Trees provide necessary shade that helps us stay cool, and helps reduce what is known as the “urban heat island effect.” It is nice to park your car under a shade tree when you are out shopping all day or at an event, isn’t it? With all the pavement and concrete in our urban areas, trees help eliminate the buildup of excess heat, which is the so-called urban heat island effect. From a health standpoint, keeping our bodies from overheating during warmer months is especially important for people suffering from respiratory illnesses.
