Shade Trees

Trees provide great shade and help reduce solar heat gain. In turn, a building can lower its cooling and heating costs by using shade provided by trees.

Why this Matters

For My Organization

Shade from trees decrease building energy usage and therefore decreases the carbon footprint. 

For New Orleans

Trees are part of the community and are aesthetically pleasing. In addition to providing shade, they improve air quality, soak up rain water and moderate adverse weather.
