The Value of Trees in the Landscape

Trees provide valuable benefits to a property. As tree experts, we are always mindful of these benefits when we trim, prune, or even remove a tree from the landscape. By keeping the intents of the trees and how the will be affected by our hand, we become more cautious instead of a less judicious counterpart.

Privacy

Trees offer a valuable privacy screen, whether they cover a see-through fence, open property line, or act as a shield from the view of others on higher ground. Many pool owners add trees for this very reason. They can also hide undesirable elements which may be within sight of a property which the homeowner doesn’t wish to see. They do so without the formality or expense of a wall and are a valuable shield for other issues, as well.

Noise, dust, and pollution

Trees filter noise and dust and can be planted as a windbreak in areas where the wind is problematic. Freeway noise, industrial noise, and other sounds can be tamped down by trees. Thousands of lovely tree leaves can muffle even the noise of a neighbor mowing their lawn.

Beauty and value

There is no wall, fence, break or barrier which offers more beauty than a natural stand of trees. They add value to a property, as well, giving it a mature, established look which buyers love. Imagine intending to purchase a property for your family. Will you choose a home with a lush, mature landscape, or one which is bare or has a few trees? The answer is almost always the property with established trees.

Erosion protection

Trees are a more substantial form of protection against erosion in areas where water tends to move. A well-established tree root system will protect the soil and land from flood situations. In areas where trees have been eliminated, flooding and decimation of the earth can be catastrophic.

Encourage wildlife

We share our tiny planet with bees, birds, butterflies, and other creatures who will happily integrate into our domain if they feel comfortable. Trees provide an abundance of offerings to wildlife, including shade, flowers, moisture, and a habitat for living and producing offspring. With judicious pruning, the more unpleasant vermin can be discouraged while offering refuge to the more desirable ones.

Increase Oxygen

One of the benefits of trees is that they convert carbon dioxide to oxygen, thus offering fresh air to the property’s inhabitants. Trees have a slight cooling effect, as well, because transpiration emits a tiny quantity of moisture into the atmosphere. Between seven and eight trees will provide for the oxygen requirements of one person per year,

Well-tended trees offer a positive, healthy addition to the landscape, creating enjoyment and value for property owners, wildlife, and the planet. If the trees on your property need some periodic maintenance, removal, or another tree service, give us a call. We’d be happy to help!
