Add Value and Style to Your Home

Trees can offer so much for your home and make a huge impact to the environment and to you. Trees connect people to nature and bring beauty and life to landscapes. Because of all the benefits that trees can provide, you can raise your property value by planting trees around your home and letting them mature. You can learn more about the benefit of trees below.



Benefits of Trees

Property Value

Did you know...?

  • "Landscaping, especially with trees, can increase property values as much as 20 percent." - Management Information Services/ICMA
  • "Trees can be a stimulus to economic development, attracting new business and tourism. Commercial retail areas are more attractive to shoppers, apartments rent more quickly, tenants stay longer, and space in a wooded setting is more valuable to sell or rent." - The Arbor Day Foundation
  • "A mature tree can often have an appraised value of between $1,000 and $10,000." - Council of Tree and Landscape Appraisers

Trees increase in value as they grow. If well maintained through corrective pruning and mulching, your trees will provide you more benefits than what it will cost to maintain them. They will continue to add value to your home and help save you money as they mature.

In a well-maintained landscape, trees add beauty to your home, support wildlife and save you energy costs, thereby increasing your property value.

Save Energy

  • "The net cooling effect of a young, healthy tree is equivalent to ten room-size air conditioners operating 20 hours a day." - U.S. Department of Agriculture
  • "If you plant a tree today on the west side of your home, in 5 years your energy bills should be 3% less. In 15 years the savings will be nearly 12%." - Dr. E. Greg McPherson, Center for Urban Forest Research
  • "Trees properly placed around buildings can reduce air conditioning needs by 30 percent and can save 20–50 percent in energy used for heating." - USDA Forest Service

Trees provide shade and wind-breaking qualities that benefit everyone, from your family taking shelter on a hot day to an entire city's population.

Direct economic benefits of trees are usually associated with energy costs. Strategically placing trees around a single-family home can cut summer air conditioning needs. By reducing the energy we need for cooling our houses, we can reduce carbon dioxide and other pollution emissions from power plants.

Environmental Benefits

  • "The planting of trees means improved water quality, resulting in less runoff and erosion. This allows more recharging of the ground water supply. Wooded areas help prevent the transport of sediment and chemicals into streams." - USDA Forest Service

Having trees in an environment can moderate the effects of climate, deflect strong winds, improve air quality, and harbor wildlife. With strong roots, trees reduce the impact of storm and flood waters by slowing water movement and soil erosion. They also filter the air by absorbing toxins like carbon dioxide and smoke to return oxygen to the atmosphere.

By planting trees, we return developed areas into a more natural environment, attracting wildlife and encouraging ecological cycles of plant growth and reproduction. Balanced is restored between nature and the urban environment.
