How Your Trees Are A Great Investment

In a struggling economy where home values are dipping or having a tough time maintaining, trees are an simple solution to increasing the value of your home. The beauty of trees, flowers, and other vegetation enhances the appeal of a property and could possible raise your property value anywhere between 10 and 20 percent. A well chosen tree landscape adds curb appeal to your home and makes a home look established within it’s environment. If you have nosy neighbors always popping their heads over the fence, trees can create a privacy barrier from neighbors. Real estate professionals believe mature and healthy trees have a strong impact on a buyer’s decision making process, as older trees carry their weight in return investments.

Trees provide a great return on your investment when it comes to being energy efficient. Trees provide shade during the summer, reducing your cooling costs up to 25 percent. Trees also reduce the heating effect on the planet by absorbing carbon dioxide and producing oxygen, so cooling your home at the same time as cooling the planet is a win-win situation for you and the earth. Trees also act as windbreaks for your home, reducing your heating bills in the winter months. And as you know, we have our fair share of wind during the winter here in the Tri-Cities.

Trees are mood enhancers, they spark memories from our childhoods, like when we used to climb the Apple tree or play on the tire swing tied to the old Oak. We see them as nature’s playgrounds, they are the backdrops for family photos and a shady place to gather for lunch. Trees are the past, present and future. You may have planted that tree with your children, you enjoyed pushing your babies in the swing and now your grandchildren. When you do sell your house, the new couple will see these possibilities for their family.

Trimming your trees properly, maintaining their health, structure and growth will enhance all of these possibilities. Trees that are not properly pruned and taken care of can become headaches, and heartaches down the road. So show your trees a little tender loving care, giving thanks to trees, and the benefits will be endless.
