Planting Park City encourages residents to plant trees strategically around their homes

PARK CITY, Utah — As part of Planting Park City’s commitment to fostering a greener, healthier world, they recently introduced the Arbor Day’s Energy-Saving Trees program. This initiative is designed to empower Park City residents to plant trees strategically around their homes, maximizing their benefits for both the environment and homeowners.

In collaboration with the Arbor Day Foundation, Planting Park City is offering residents the opportunity to receive one free tree of their choosing.

Why Trees Matter

According to Planting Park City, strategically planting trees around homes can unlock numerous benefits:

  1. Energy Efficiency: Properly placed trees can provide shade in the summer, reducing the need for air conditioning, and act as windbreaks in the winter, lowering heating costs.
  2. Property Value: Trees can enhance the visual appeal of residential properties, increasing curb appeal and overall value.
  3. Carbon Footprint Reduction: By absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen, trees help mitigate the impacts of greenhouse gas emissions.
  4. Air Quality Improvement: Trees act as natural air filters, trapping pollutants and particulate matter.
  5. Stormwater Management: Tree roots help absorb rainwater, reducing soil erosion and preventing stormwater runoff.

Choosing Your Tree

Planting Park City offers a selection of tree species, each chosen for its adaptability to Park City’s climate and soil conditions. Some of the available options include:

  • Amur Maple ‘Greenspire’: A compact and hardy tree, ideal for smaller spaces.
  • Littleleaf Linden: Known for its elegant, heart-shaped leaves and fragrant flowers.
  • Radiant Crabapple: Adds color and charm.
  • Shademaster Honeylocust: Delicate foliage.
  • Spring Snow Crabapple (Sproutfree): A disease-resistant variety with white blossoms.
