A study conducted by Auburn University sheds new light on how valuable shade trees are in reducing homeowners' electricity bills during the hot summer months.  The study stated that Shade treees can reduce power bills by 11.4%.  Professor David Laband in the School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences states the electricity usage and costs will be 11.4  percent less if a house has just 17.5 percent heavy shade coverage.

I've very happy with my trees, I have felt my neighbors house during the summer that doesn't have any, but I can't imagine planting them now if I didn't have any. It would take 20 years for them to become shade trees.

Is there a way to speed that up?

Hey Todd:  I came across the following article about trees http://www.marthastewart.com/article/fast-growing-trees.  It appears as though one factor in determining the speed of growth is the type of trees you plant.
