Home Improvement: Let’s plant trees

By Don Shor, Greg McPherson and Yael Franco
Special to The Enterprise

One of the simplest actions you can take to improve your neighborhood, increase your property values, lower your energy bills, and help sustain our urban forest is to plant a tree.

We all know trees are beneficial. They help to reduce the urban heat island effect by shading reflective surfaces. They moderate the local climate by blocking wind and providing shade. Direct cooling of buildings reduces energy use. They filter pollutants from the air, provide habitat for wildlife, sequester carbon, and are well known to have social, emotional, and cultural benefits.

Just how beneficial are trees?

Dr. Greg McPherson, retired Urban Forest Researcher with the USDA Forest Service, has done research to quantify some of the benefits of trees. For example, a mature shade tree in Davis can reduce annual air conditioning costs by $15-20. The same tree removes 10 pounds of air pollutants with annual health human benefits valued at $40-50.

By intercepting 700 gallons of rainfall, this tree reduces stormwater runoff and pollution, valued at $6. The same tree can sequester 200-300 pounds of carbon dioxide each year, helping to offset our emissions. It increases property

Lorain Building, Housing, Planning change could bring home improvement money | Lorain County

Lorain’s Department of Building, Housing and Planning could add staff in a move to spend federal money designated to improve houses in the city.

The Building, Housing and Planning Department will reorganize in an effort to resolve longstanding issues with the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development.

That is the federal agency that oversees the HOME Investment Partnerships Program, which can pay for home improvements for low- to moderate-income residents.

The HOME program has been on hold in Lorain since 2016, said Max Upton, director of building, housing and planning for the city.

Home Improvement Business Boom

RALEIGH, N.C. – Since the pandemic began, businesses in the home improvement arena have seen an unexpected bump in business.

The owners of a Raleigh-based cabinet business have had an unbelievable year even though the pandemic threatened to take all of their success away. 

Ashley Hall is the founder of Lexie and the Chi, a cabinet renovation business. She says at first they were worried customers wouldn’t need their services. To their surprise, they were wrong. 

“I think people had had several months of being at home, seeing different projects,” Hall says. “Also I think that a lot of our clients have said they didn’t go on vacation, they aren’t doing a lot of traveling and so they have a little bit of disposable income and this is the perfect time to do it.”

Lexie and the Chi’s social media pages show off their masterful transformations, one of Hall’s favorite parts. 

“It’s seeing the transformations , for sure, the before and after, and being able to give that to our clients.”

Hall says they are booked out through March at this point and in a typical year, get lots of phone calls after the new year.
