Investing in tree care may seem like a discretionary expense that you really cannot afford. However, trees have a large economic impact on their owners and the communities in which they live:
Trees on your property mean real dollars in your pocket over the long term, expecially in North Texas where the lack of trees is very noticed in the heat of the summer. Investing in the maintenance of your trees will pay you dividends over the years as the trees bring you enjoyment, shade, beauty while you live under them and more money when you go to sell your property.
A recent report published by the US Forest Service’s Pacific Northwest Research Station provides some insight into the relation of trees to the value of a residential home or commercial property. The report is titled,”Calculating the Green in Green: What Is an Urban Tree Worth?” Here are a couple of the key findings of the report:
This data confirms the results of a 1989 study in Austin, Texas published in the Journal of Arboriculture where the authors found that trees around residential homes added 13%-19% to the homes market value.
