So we have simple options for collecting rain water to eliminate a fair amount of unnatural watering of plants, has anyone heard of or devised ways of bringing glorious wind and co2 naturally to our plants as well.  particularly in highly wooded or in my case urban areas it would be great to have a way to naturally redirect wind through to your crops.

Just a curiosity, have never even heard of this subject being discussed.

I can'r relocate trees or plants just looking for a way to relocate the air itself.

There is so much CO2 that it has never developed into an engineering problem.

The CO2 is not really the problem, I suppose I shouldn't have really worded it in the way that it is. I'm more concerned about liquids evaporating off leaves and just generally getting a good supply of air movement through plants particularly in my situation of close proximity housing.

How about a clear plastic tube around the plant?  Leave the bottom about one foot above ground, and paint the north face flat black.  The air inside the tube would heat up and rise out of the top.  This would create a vacuum at the bottom, sucking in cooler air.  Sort of a jury rig wind tunnel.
