About Shade Trees…
In the dog days of summer, nothing beats a shady spot under a big tree for a cool, relaxing picnic. Not only is the air temperature 2 to 9°F cooler in the shade, but your clothes, skin and food can be 20 to 45°F cooler than if they were in the sun. Lighter leaf color, higher foliage density, thick leaves and rougher leaf texture all enhance the cooling effect.
