A deciduous tree planted on the West, South, or East side of your home can save Summer home cooling energy costs up to 30%! The bonus is that leaves will fall off during the Winter months, allowing the sun to come through and help keep your home warm, giving your furnace a little break too! Look for fast-growing varieties to get your trees to fill in quickly and get the savings started! We have deciduous trees all around our house and we really notice how much they affect the temperature indoors. Fall is the perfect time to get planting!
