Plant Green Giant Arborvitae for Noise Barrier to Reduce Traffic Noise
Arborvitae tree lines are a great fit to increase your properties privacy and reduce pollution. One of the pollution homeowners often seek to reduce is the sound of a busy road.
Sound pollution can be altered from individual components to something similar to an indistinguishable humming and somewhat even reduced, but it is one of the hardest pollution to eliminate.
Our senses may be best described as lazy. When we see and hear something, our brain will most likely identify what object we are witnessing. However, when we only hear it (hopefully with a reduced distinction) and do not see the object, our brain most likely will skip identifying the object.
If we were to ask people how much noise reduction is accomplished by a row of privacy Arborvitae such as the Green Giant Thuja, perhaps the answer would be 75%. Yet the measured actual noise reduction may just be in the high single digit percentage.
However, several rows of Green Giant Thuja Arborvitae could reduce noise pollution significantly.
