This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1911 edition. Excerpt: ... at its open windows; whereas shade that is only upon it cannot affect the surrounding atmosphere in the least. Shade at a considerable distance from it is of course offset by the intervening sunny area, whence come blistering little puffs of heat that are the last straw on a hot summer day. The little diagram of tree arrangement around a dwelling is given as a study in shade only, and to illustrate the manner of finding out what results any given arrangement of trees will give. At noon, with the sun approximately a little south of overhead, the trees will cast their shortest and least shadow, and this will of course fall on their north side.

This has been effected with every tree as here shown save the two small ones in the upper left hand corner, and the single one opposite on the right. The latter is placed to cut off the hot sun of early morning, while the two former, which might very well be some tall, spire-like tree such as the Lombardy poplar, will stretch their lengthening shadows around as the day wanes, until they reach along the grass to the house at sunset. The tree nearest the house is fifteen feet from it and, though the shade of several will fall on the building's foundations and part of the lower story at some hour of the day, the building itself is actually in the open, and the sun has free access to every side. In passing it is worth while to remark that a house plated thus at an angle to the points of the compass enjoys the greatest number of those advantages which arise from sun and weather. Every room has sunlight for a little while daily, winter and...
