Just like lawns, trees need consistent nutrients and care to stay healthy, beautiful, and achieve optimum growth. Trees that lack proper nutrition can show signs of stress and become weak and unsafe. They can also invite insect and disease infestation, or can develop a nutrient deficiency such as chlorosis. Proper tree care will reward you with beautiful elements that frame your landscape and add enjoyment to your life.
Strong and Healthy Trees Improve Our Communities
Healthy Trees Add Value and Aesthetic Appeal to Our Communities.
Trees add color, structure and focal points within the landscape. They also provide shelter, comfort, and privacy to our surroundings. Birds and other wildlife are attracted to trees and vegetation which can add interest and beauty to our spaces. Besides, who doesn’t like to enjoy the sights and sounds of trees and their visitors? Improving the aesthetic appeal of our properties with beautiful and healthy trees improves its value and attractiveness as well.
Beautiful Trees Invite Outdoor Activity.
Heat can discourage people from spending time outdoors during the hot summer months, especially here in the Treasure Valley. According to Trees-Energy-Conservation, “Under tree canopies, temperatures can be up to ten degrees lower than in direct sunlight. This creates the perfect space for people to walk, meet with friends, and take breaks from work.” Picnics in the park and walks along the green belt and in our neighborhoods are much more enjoyable with beautiful trees. Stress levels are also reduced when outdoor activity can be enjoyed with the presence of trees.
Trees Extend the Life of Structure Materials Such as Pavement, Roofing, Siding, etc.
UV radiation is a primary factor in the gradual deterioration of our structural materials. This can happen over a period of days, months, or years depending on the intensity. Trees simply shade surface materials from direct sunlight and extend their life period.
Large & Healthy Trees Reduce Noise Pollution & Urban Water Run-Off.
Any form of herbaceous material such as trees and shrubs absorb and deflect sound energy. They act as natural buffers reducing urban noise pollution. Trees also intercept rainfall as this water and moisture clings to the surfaces of leaves, branches and trunks. Trees are vital in preventing erosion and flash flooding.
Landscape Trees Reduce Home Energy Costs.
Trees that shade your home can reduce the amount of energy your home uses during the hot summer months. Carefully planting deciduous trees near your home can shade your home during summer heat and invite sunlight in during winter months. Also, by shading your air conditioning unit it will operate more efficiently while shaded. Trees and vegetations can also reduce glare and reflection from direct light.
