Benefits Offered By Trees

Benefits of Trees in Boca Raton

Some trees have been planted in Boca Raton to provide beauty or shade, while others have been planted to create a certain environmental décor.

These are all great reasons to plant trees in Boca Raton. However, Boca Raton trees serve many other purposes as well. Below we will try, with the help of some information from the International Society of Arboriculture, to explain exactly what those purposes might be.

The benefits trees offer to our community can be grouped into four categories. Those categories are social, communal, environmental, and economic.

As a Professional Boca Raton Tree Service part of training our personnel involves teaching them about these concepts. These tree benefit concepts not only help us understand the value of the trees in our community, but also allow us to help our neighbors better understand and manage their trees.

Social Benefits of Trees

We like trees around us because they make life more pleasant. Most of us respond to the presence of trees beyond simply observing their beauty. We feel serene, peaceful, restful, and tranquil in a grove of trees. We are “at home” there. Hospital patients have been shown to recover from surgery more quickly when their hospital room offered a view of trees.

The strong ties between people and trees are most evident in the resistance of community residents to removing trees to widen streets. Or we note the heroic efforts of individuals and organizations to save particularly large or historic trees in a community.

The stature, strength, and endurance of trees give them a cathedral-like quality. Because of their potential for long life, trees frequently are planted as living memorials. We often become personally attached to trees that we or those we love have planted.

At Boca Raton Tree, we understand the attachment a community can have to its trees, and we strive to prune for consistent health and structural viability. Our tree trimmers and arborists are trained to protect your trees and property during every step of the process.

Communal Benefits of Trees

Even though trees may be private property, their size often makes them part of the community as well. Because trees occupy considerable space, planning is required if both you and your neighbors are to benefit. With proper selection and maintenance, trees can enhance and function on one property without infringing on the rights and privileges of neighbors.

City trees often serve several architectural and engineering functions. They provide privacy, emphasize views, or screen out objectionable views. They reduce glare and reflection. They direct pedestrian traffic. They provide background to and soften, complement, or enhance architecture.

At Boca Raton Tree we know the value of trees to the community as a whole, and work to maintain all trees in the community by utilizing the latest arboricultural techniques and following modern guidelines.

Our arborists are trained in all phases of residential and commercial tree services in Boca Raton.

Environmental Benefits of Trees

Trees alter the environment in which we live by moderating climate, improving air quality, conserving water, and harboring wildlife. Climate control is obtained by moderating the effects of sun, wind, and rain. Radiant energy from the sun is absorbed or deflected by leaves on deciduous trees in the summer and is only filtered by branches of deciduous trees in winter. We are cooler when we stand in the shade of trees and are not exposed to direct sunlight. In winter, we value the sun’s radiant energy. Therefore, we should plant only small or deciduous trees on the south side of homes

Wind speed and direction can be affected by trees. The more compact the foliage on the tree or group of trees, the greater the influence of the windbreak. The downward fall of rain, sleet, and hail is initially absorbed or deflected by trees, which provides some protection for people, pets, and buildings. Trees intercept water, store some of it, and reduce storm runoff and the possibility of flooding.
