Did you know that by having tree’s on your property you can increase the overall value of your property? This is not often a commonly known fact, but it is indeed true. Here are some of the top ways that trees will add value.
1. Provide cooling effects and save energy.
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, “the net cooling effect of a young, healthy tree is equivalent to ten room-size air conditioners operating 20 hours a day.” Can you imagine how much you could save or are saving by having trees on your property? The key here is to make sure that the tree is healthy. This is where we at Six Diamonds can help. Yes, it may be an investment to have us come to your property but, in the long run, getting this assessment will indeed save you money!
2. Trees along the street are advantageous.
According to Wolf, Kathleen L, PhD, University of Washington*, “Having large trees in yards along streets increases a home’s value from 3 percent to 15 percent.” Again another money-saving investment. If you have been looking for ways to increase the value of your property, this could be the ticket. If you are having trouble knowing which trees to add to your property, we can help you make this decision.
3. Healthy, mature trees will add value to your property.
Have you ever contemplated removing a mature tree from your property? We encourage you to think again. According to USDA Forest Service, “Healthy, mature trees add an average of 10 percent to a property’s value.” The key here is that the tree is healthy. If the tree is not healthy please do consider removing this tree. It is advised that you have a professional tree service to help with this. Here at Six Diamonds Tree Services, we can help to evaluate the health of your tree and advise if you should remove a tree or not. Taking measures like regular pruning can help maintain the health of your trees. In the long run, if the tree is indeed healthy and mature, your property value will remain increased.
Although there are many benefits to having trees on your property, according to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, “The greatest benefits are energy savings and higher property values.” Maintaining healthy trees on your property is a worthwhile investment.
