I began noticing in our area; not many people have enough trees planted to shade their homes. I hope this instructable will inspire you to plant a few seedlings, even if you might not receive the benefits; plant them for the next guy!
Step 1: Trees
We did a search and found which trees grow fast to produce shade for our area. Some native trees can be invasive so it is best to do the research.
My husband loves the sycamore tree. He discovered that the London planes do well here. He gathered some pods from some healthy trees and planted them last year in our holding spot.
We have had success planting from seeds. Our online research paid off.
