Shadows cast by trees and buildings can limit the solar access of rooftop solar-energy systems, including photovoltaic panels and thermal collectors. This study characterizes rooftop shading in a residential neighborhood of San Jose, CA, one of four regions analyzed in a wider study of the solar access of California homes.High-resolution orthophotos and LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) measurements of surface height were used to create a digital elevation model of all trees and buildings in a 4 km2 residential neighborhood. Hourly shading of roofing planes (the flat elements of roofs) was computed geometrically from the digital elevation model. Parcel boundaries were used to determine the extent to which roofing planes were shaded by trees and buildings in neighboring parcels.In the year in which surface heights were measured (2005), shadows from all sources ("total shading") reduced the insolation received by S-, SW-, and W-facing residential roofing planes in the study area by 13 - 16percent. Shadows cast by trees and buildings in neighboring parcels reduced insolation by no more than 2percent. After 30 years of simulated maximal tree growth, annual total shading increased to 19 - 22percent, and annual extraparcel shading increased to 3 - 4percent.

From the iconic lone cypress on the Monterey coastline to the palm trees of Beverly Hills and the magnificent coastal redwoods, trees are a defining element of California's spectacular and exceptionally diverse landscape. This abundantly illustrated, beautifully produced, easy-to-use volume is a one-stop guide to California's trees. An essential resource for gardeners, homeowners, landscape design professionals, and anyone interested in the state's abundant flora, it provides a comprehensive photographic compendium of 107 native and 311 ornamental species. "Trees of the California Landscape" gives the what, how, and where of tree selection, planting, and design, paying particular attention to the need for improving sustainability and for increasing awareness of native habitats. It also features a valuable overview of the topography, geography, and climates that define California's unique landscape. This book includes more than 1,000 color illustrations include spectacular photographs, detailed drawings of specific features, and informative maps. Each species is treated on a full page with an array of color illustrations and drawings. Habitat ranges, water requirements, growth rates, mature sizes, suitability for specific landscapes, and more, are listed for each tree. A fully illustrated section covers the basics of tree identification.
