Trees also provide shelter and food for a variety of wildlife. While installing bird feeders will help attract birds to your yard, providing them with nearby trees and shrubs to escape danger, build nests, and obtain food, will be even more effective. Squirrels and other small mammals use trees for nesting sites and food sources. When selecting trees, consider what food value they may offer to wildlife in your community.
Trees can offer years of enjoyment. Planting trees and watching them grow can be part of your family's memories. Consider planting a tree to commemorate a milestone in your family's life. While raking leaves may seem like a chore as you get older, jumping in piles of leaves can be a treat for children. Hanging a swing, building a tree house, or simply relaxing under shade of a tree on a hot summer day can be a memorable experience.

Freestanding And Lean-to GreenhousesWritten by Matthew Anthony
Continued from page 1
You need to provide such freestanding greenhouses considerable shelter by constructing them at a suitable site or providing additional shading like shade-cloths during warmer months. A shade helps avoid overheating a greenhouse in warmer months. This risk is usually present in freestanding greenhouses, since they are not as shaded as lean-to attached greenhouses. The latter share a wall with an existing building and thus receive adequate shade. This same feature works in favour of freestanding greenhouses during cooler months as then, they get maximum all-round exposure to sun. Its small wonder then, that freestanding greenhouses are most common type of greenhouse used.
A lean-to greenhouse is attached (leans to) a building, garage or house, using existing structure for one or more of its sides. It gets its name simply because its support is aided by another structure. Apart from ease in which heat, light and water can be provided other major advantage is its accessibility. You can tend to your plants at anytime of day without having to brave elements to get there. You can therefore give them attention they deserve.
Matthew Anthony manages and writes for several garden based sites such as greenhouses and conservatories.
