Trees do many things for us: they keep our planet cool, they absorb carbon dioxide, they release oxygen, the sustain wildlife, they prevent soil erosion, and they provide us various essential fruits and vegetables. You can keep your surroundings cool and shaded by strategically planting trees at various places. Now planting trees is not an instant gratification; you cannot expect a tree to grow within a few weeks or within a few months. An average tree takes anywhere between four to five years to even begin looking like a tree. But it shouldn’t stop you from planting more and more trees because having trees around you after 10 years is a lot better than having no trees after 10 years. Besides your children will thank you for leaving them a greener, healthier earth rather than a concretized jungle full of pollution and heat. This article talks about how to plant trees to keep your home and your planet cool.
