Depending on the number of trees that you plant around your landscape, Fast growing trees do not live as long nor are they as strong as slow growing trees, so decide what type of tree you will need by your region. Northern states or countries can use fast growing trees, Southern states should build slower growing trees, they survive better in the heat. ************************************************Windows and other house openings: Warm Climate Window Tips Install white window shades, drapes, or blinds to reflect heat away from the house.Close curtains on south- and west-facing windows during the day.
