Controlling Noise Pollution by Planting Trees

The modern lifestyle and workforce has gotten many of us to stay in the urban area. Buses, trains, cars, bulldozers…we get to hear any type of noises. This is called urbanization. Most of us would prepare a quiet place to live in but we can\’t as our work forces us to be in towns rather than a quiet and warm countryside.

After a long day\’s work, a quiet moment is all we need. Since many of us can\’t afford to build soundproof walls, the next best alternative is to plant trees. Planting trees is way better than anything else and going green is the best way to live in today\’s age of modern technology.

This method is very suitable for homes with sufficient garden lawn. But be patient with the growth of trees as it\’s not an overnight process but you\’ll them once you start.

These are what you need to consider when purchasing your favorite trees:

  1. The volume of bushes

Plant trees with leaves that have thick volume so that some of the nearby noise especially from the traffic will be absorbed. Besides that, leaves like these are most likely able to withstand the dust from retarding the growth.

  1. Tree roots

You need strong roots trees so that they won\’t tumble on the ground when storm or strong wind hits. But at the same time, make sure that you trees won\’t have their roots crawling under the compound where your house is built on or else you will be facing structural complications later on when the trees mature.

Now, the job doesn\’t stop here. Trees are like humans. They need nutrition to remain strong and to continue growing luscious leaves or else all you will get are dry branches. So, remember to take care of your trees by feeding them with fertilizers and daily watering. By taking care of your trees, they in return will take care of the noise pollution and also provide valuable oxygen for your household freshness.

There, you have it now, your own sense of peace and quietness. No more disturbing, no more disturbances and that\’s how peace feels like!
