Tree Planting Services Vancouver
We sometimes take trees for granted, but they have a wealth of benefits that stretch beyond beautification.
Excess amounts of carbon dioxide can have harmful effects on the environment and climate. Trees clean the air we breathe through the process of photosynthesis. They absorb pollutant gases such as carbon dioxide through their leaves and bark, and in return, they give us oxygen. Their roots also help to hold soil in place and prevent erosion caused by wind and water, on steep slopes tree roots help to prevent landslides.
Trees help to create a peaceful environment by providing privacy and muffling street noises. The presence of trees can help reduce mental fatigue and depression, lower blood pressure and improve one’s mood.
Trees moderate the effects of the sun by providing shade during the summer heat and improve the microclimate in your yard. They can reduce energy costs for air conditioning significantly and protect you from overheating while you are enjoying the shade and dappled light your tree provides.
Planting a tree can be a fruitful investment. The right tree, planted in the right place, will create a focal point in your garden; it can even increase the value of your property by improving the curb appeal of your landscape. However, before planting a tree, you should consider the following:
- A tree too close to a building, or an overhead or underground utility line can cause damages or result in high maintenance costs.
- Tree size and habit (shape) should fit your landscape to create aesthetically pleasing and balanced views making you love your garden even more.
- Proper tree planting helps to ensure the health of your tree as it grows. Planting a tree too shallow can be a problem in terms of stability. Much more common though is a tree that is planted too deep, which can lead to a decline in tree health caused by a buried root crown.
- Soil conditions such as the availability of nutrients and water should play a major role in your tree selection process.
