Thinking about how trees supply climate control

Thinking about how trees supply climate control

I’ve been taking my two adolescents to the park a few blocks down from where my friend and I live for a couple years now. My associate and I live in a bustling and developing city, and any redery that I can expose them to is actually welcome. They do not call it the concrete jungle for nothing! The park itself is relatively small compared to the surrounding area, however it has many big and beautiful trees that supply ample shade; Yesterday, as I was resting on the park bench watching my two children play on the playground equipment with some other adolescents they had become friends with, I found my mind drifting off to the topic of climate control. I realized the trees are a natural form of climate control. In fact, they were one of the only forms of climate control that people had back in the day, before advanced technology. If you know about it, trees had and still have the potential to supply both heating and cooling. Now of course, the first thing that you know of when you neighbor trees with heating is splitting firewood and building a fire. Moreover, trees obviously assist in cooling us by providing shade from the sun. When it comes down to it, they were also used to supply the lumber that allowed shelter from the heat or cold. It was genuinely interesting for me to suddenly realize that trees were essential for nearly all forms of climate control before the concept of central heating and a/c or any other derivative that employs advanced technology. It’s quite fascinating!
