Replanting After Tree Removal: Why Is It Important?

In order to improve the functionality and aesthetics of our properties and keep our homes safe and secure, tree removal will always be required. The question is, however, how many of us do something about replanting trees when we cut them down?

Here are the top 5 reasons why you should consider replanting AFTER tree REMOVAL:

Storage of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere

The role of replanting in storing carbon is unquestionably the most beneficial, and with global warming front and center in the minds of every individual, the importance of replanting after tree removal cannot be overstated. Have you ever heard that carbon represents 50 percent of the dry mass of a tree? Did you know that? Generally speaking, dry mass is comprised of the trunk, roots, and branches of the tree. Trees that are young have an average removal of CO2 of 5.9kg annually. Once they reach the age of ten years old, the maximum amount of weight that they can remove per year is 22kg. If you’re planning to remove a tree in the near future, think about planting a smaller, more suitable variety of trees. There are several great local nurseries in the Gold Coast region that sell a good selection of native trees, and the council provides free trees for residents in that area.

Increased property value

Having an overgrown, untidy tree on your property may hamper the property’s value, but maintaining a well-positioned, well-maintained tree can make a significant difference in your property’s value and aesthetics. We recommend that you remove any unsightly, overgrown, or poorly positioned trees and replace them with something more suitable and in keeping with the style of your home. In our warm coastal climate, native plants have the advantage of growing far better and are usually much easier to establish.

Wildlife Habitat

We probably would not be able to survive without the food and shelter trees provide us. The cutting of trees destroys the habitat of increasingly more wildlife species each year. When you plant trees in your yard that provide habitat for wildlife, you can benefit from that wildlife as well. Be sure to consider your available space and what you plan to do with your property before planning to plant new trees. Eucalyptus replants well in this case. The Grownative app provides information on native trees with lists of where to buy them to create wildlife habitats.

Natural Sound Buffer

By planting a hedge around your property, you can reduce the noise from busy roads and noisy neighbors. Lilly Pilly trees are dense plants that make excellent hedges, as well as a natural alternative to sound-insulated boards that could reduce noise by several decibels. They can also reduce the need for expensive sound-proofing materials. There are a number of Lily Pilly trees available through nurseries and Bunning’s that are easy to grow inexpensive trees that can be easily grown. In terms of screening and hedging, there are varieties like the Resilience that are perfect for you.

Natural Climate Control

The conveniences of modern life have made us forget how nice it can be to cool down under the shade of a tree. You can create a haven of relaxation and rest in your backyard by planting a shady feature tree. In spite of a tree’s good health, pruning is necessary. The canopy will be kept in check this way. On those freezing cold winter days, our feature tree under discussion reduces wind loads by providing cooling in the summer. In addition to protecting our homes from wind damage, we can also protect our young children.

The presence of trees in our lives and the environment plays an important role in our lives as well as those around us.
