Also they release certain gases through breathing. However, the nature of gases released by different trees and plants differs.
Vastu Shastra guides us as to what types of plants and trees should be planted around a dwelling place to enjoy their positive properties.
The trees should be away from the building so that the shadow of any tree does not fall upon the house from 9.00 am to 3.00 pm. Perhaps, it may obstruct the beneficial cosmic radiations found in hot sun rays.
