Why is a tree less desirable in the south and have negative energy and CO2 costs?

Why does the program indicate that a tree is least-desireably planted to the south of the house?

This can be confusing as...

Re: Required inputs for calculating leaf surface area

Yes. your understanding is correct as a default of 13% will be applied as the Percent crown missing to all trees if you decided not to collect the "Crown" measurments.
