You'll Enjoy the Shade and Protection from the Elements
How would you like to save up to 30% on your heating and cooling costs? You can if you plant the right kind of trees in the right locations. According to the Georgia Forestry Commission, the cooling power of a healthy shade tree equals 10 room-size air conditioners running 20 hours a day. Shading your air conditioning unit with a tree or shrub can save you 10%. All it takes is placing the right trees in the right spots.
