Trees provide a host of valuable goods and services of immeasurable benefit to human society and the world environment. The long list of goods include wood, fiber, cellulose, tannin, fruits, nuts, sweet sap and medicines. Services are equally important in terms of improving air quality by removing carbon dioxide, enhancing soil quality, slowing surface water runoff, aesthetics and perhaps most important providing shade for humans and to create crucial protected habitat for animals, plants and other organisms. Deciduous shade trees play an important role in middle latitudes, providing shade for structures, people and animals in summer, but allowing sunlight through in winter. In the subtropics and tropics, the shade cast by evergreen trees is indispensable for humans and their settlements, as well as for livestock and agriculture. The importance of shade trees is most dramatically exemplified in a desert oasis. The utilization of shade trees in landscaping has both aesthetic and practical value; they enhance the beauty of a house or any other type of structure while at the same time, if properly positioned, cast shade which can contribute directly to reduce energy costs. With so many choices available, deciding upon a species of shade tree can be daunting. Because shade trees are commonly multi-functional in landscaping, it is wise to make choices which provide the most desirable combination of benefits. Foliage trees with moderate to dense crowns are a good choice for maximum shade effect. To make possible the effective growth of understory plants and grass, trees which cast only light shade are the option. Among the numerous tree species casting dense shade, are Marlberry (Ardisia escalloniides) a small tree with attractive foliage, fragrant flowers and edible fruit; Yellow Geiger (Cordia lutea) with bright green leaves, yellow flowers and white fruit; Lancepod Tree (Lonchocarpus violaceus) bearing rich green leaves and fragrant lavender flowers and Ironwood (Mesua ferrea) a large tree with blue-gray leaves and grayish-red bark. Trees with moderately dense crowns casting partial shade include Snow Bush (Breynia disticha) a small tree or shrub which has variegated leaves; Silver Buttonwood (Conocarpus sericeus) a small moderate sized tree with attractive silvery leaves and red to brown fruits; White Stopper (Eugenia axillaris) a low tree with dark green leaves which are pinkish when young and Darling Plum (Reynosia septentrionalis) another smaller tree or shrub which has small leathery green leaves and an edible fruit. To achieve light shade, trees with few branches and open crowns are applicable, such as the semi-deciduous Mexican Calabash (Crescentia alata) with wide spreading branches, dark green foliage and an edible fruit pulp; White Ponciana (Delonix elata) briefly deciduous, bearing brownish-yellow flowers; Jerusalem Thorn (Parkinsonia aculeata) a small to medium sized tree with handsome green bark and Shaving Brush Tree (Pseudobombax ellipticum) which has long-stemmed palmate leaves and showy brush-like flowers.
