“The Giving Tree”?
Shel Silverstein was really onto something when he wrote this classic tale about a boy and his relationship with a tree. The basic message of “The
Giving Tree” rings true: Trees give us so much, without really asking for anything in return. Studies show that trees in good health help to
increase property values. Even undeveloped land that is wooded carries a higher price tag than similar land without tree cover. There are many
reasons for this increase in value. The beauty and aesthetic appeal of trees is usually the first one to come to mind. However, trees also provide
significant decreases in heating and cooling costs, and can create windbreaks, privacy screens and sound barriers on your property.
To be sure that your trees keep increasing in value, they must be kept in good condition. Regular pruning, fertilization and pest management will
all work together to enhance and preserve tree health. Another way to get the most bang for your buck is to get professional help whenever it’s time
to replace trees or plant new ones. Expert advice and assistance in the selection and placement of new trees will ensure that your plantings grow in beauty and value over the years ahead.
When it comes to the trees on your property, it’s worth investing in professional installation and care. Not only can this help to increase the value of your property, but it will improve the environment we all share.
