The Power of Shade Trees

Planting and maintaining desert trees to shade your home provides many benefits:

  • Save as much as 20% in energy costs as the trees mature
  • Increase the resale value of your property by as much as 15%
  • Retain water and soil moisture and reduce the need for irrigation
  • Prevent erosion and reduce runoff
  • Provide habitat for native song birds and backyard pets
  • Absorb and take up CO2 within the fiber of the tree
  • Reduce CO2 emissions from coal-fired power plants by cooling human environments with shade and through evapotranspiration of the leaves
  • Reduce stress and anxiety
  • Bring people together, both through the planting of trees and the gathering around and under them
  • Expand your daily living area into shaded outdoor areas
  • Add beauty to your surroundings
