Make Friends with the Trees

Let the trees do the work! Landscaping can be a natural and beautiful way to cool your home in summer and reduce your energy bills. Trees and shrubs can provide shade, break the wind, and reduce your energy bills.  A well-placed tree can save up to 25% of the energy used in a typical household!  And daytime air temperatures in the summer can be 3°–6° cooler in tree-shaded neighborhoods than treeless areas.

Online tool: Learn more about landscaping!  This handy website provides good information and tips.

By taking this action you can save approximately 2820 kWh in a year. Learn more about our assumptions in the Year of Action.
