    Description

    We all know that trees improve our lives. They make our homes look better, clean the air and make outdoor activities more pleasant. Yet not everyone knows that trees also provide financial benefits. Properly located, they can cut a home's annual heating and cooling bill by as much as 25 percent. If your yard has trees or if there are trees throughout the neighborhood, you're probably already enjoying their energy-saving benefits. By planting more and judiciously pruning trees that are there already, you may be able to increase the savings.
