How to reduce your “Carbon Footprint” and help the environment AT THE SAME TIME is on everyone’s minds these days.
Most people are buying energy efficient appliances to help save on utility costs, but one of the most efficient “appliances” can be found right in your own front yard and it’s quite simply — a gourgous big tree!
A properly positioned tree will reduce the carbon emissions and extra cost of summer-time electricity use.
Plus, a well-placed tree in the front yard of your home will add to the curb appeal and resale value of your home!
But there is one note of caution: Big trees can have massive root systems, so if you are not quite sure if you have enough room, seek help from a professional.
