Minimizing Noise Pollution
The most visually appealing way to block noise is with a dense growth of plants. Some trees and shrubs are better at this than others, particularly those with evergreen low-hanging foliage and branches that extend to the ground. In many areas, however, there may not be enough room to plant trees and shrubs between the buildings and the noise source.
Consider the Mast Tree
The Mast Tree, or Polyalthia longifolia ‘Pendula,’ belongs to the Annonaceae family, one of the largest families of flowering plants, commonly known as the custard apple family, which is populated by familiar relatives, such as Ylang-Ylang (Cananga odorata), Soursop (Annona muricata), and Sugar Apple (Annona squamosa).
