Midwest Community Tree Guide: Some Helpful Info

Got some extra time today and I’m tweaking the website a bit. Came across a great .pdf that talks about trees and energy savings. One example I’ll share: plant a deciduous tree on the south side to shade that area of the house in summer, though as the leaves drop in winter the sun has an opportunity to warm the wall.

Pg 41 discusses energy and location of planting to optimize your homes heating and cooling efficiency. http://www.fs.fed.us/psw/publications/documents/psw_gtr199/psw_gtr199.pdf
