Large deciduous trees are excellent choices to plant on the south side of a house, in areas with hot summers and cold winters. These trees can cast shade on the wall and windows in summer which can reduce considerably the amount of airconditioning needed and thus conserve energy. When the leaves are gone, the sun will be able to shine through in the colder months and help keep heating costs down.
