Strategically planting trees and shrubs to shade your home can lower surrounding air temperatures during hot summer months by up to 9 degrees and can reduce your wall and roof temperature by 20 to 40 degrees. In the winter, trees function as wind breaks and can help you save on your heating bill. And if you are a desert dweller, be sure to plant the right kinds of trees so you are not using too much water!
