Trees are an important component of the natural landscape because of their prevention of erosion and the provision of a weather sheltered ecosystem in and under their foliage. They also play an important role in producing oxygen and reducing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere as well as moderating ground temperatures. They also have elements in landscaping for their aesthetic appeal. ScotPlantsDirect has a GREAT SELECTION FOR ALL TYPES OF GARDENS OR LANDSCAPES !!
