Planting Shade Trees
January 25 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 amFREE
FREE Adult Seminar: Shade Trees 101, Planting and Maintenance
Texas is hot. Planting large shade trees not only adds value to your home, but it can also offer respite from the heat, shade your home to reduce energy costs, provide a home for habitat, and add beauty to your landscape. When you live in an urban environment, it’s even more important to provide shade to homes and surrounding areas – all that extra concrete from roadways, sidewalks and buildings significantly increases temperatures in the city. Shade trees are a great way to cool things off!
