Want to add value in your community?
By: Willie Buck  -  8/1/2010

If you’re looking for a simplistic way to absorb tons of carbon dioxide while reducing energy consumption, the answer may already be standing in your own back yard. One dollar doesn’t go very far these days. But with only a buck, you can take a lot of CO2 out of the air, stop the flow of hundreds of gallons of storm-water runoff, support jobs, and clean up some air pollution. Now that’s what we call adding value. Before we link you to how one dollar can do all that, let me tell about all that value you’re going to be adding – to your property, your community, your nation, and your planet. According to the Arbor Day Foundation, trees that are properly planted can reduce air conditioning costs by up to 50 percent, by shading the windows and walls of a home." — American Public Power Association"If you plant a tree today on the west side of your home, in 5 years your energy bills should be 3% less. In 15 years the savings will be nearly 12%." —Dr. E. Greg McPherson, Center for Urban Forest
