Trees act as a great centerpiece or eccentricity to any landscape. There are also financial benefits of having trees as a part of your property. According to the Arbor Day Foundation, landscaping with trees can increase your property value by up to 20%. But what other reasons are there for having trees as a part of your landscape?
- Environmental Benefits
Naturally, trees are environmentally friendly. In fact, adding trees to your yard significantly helps improve the air quality surrounding your property. Trees can also help filter and remove toxins from water, making your overall landscape healthier.
- Natural Shade
Did you know that a tree’s shade can increase an outdoor air conditioner’s efficiency by 10%? The shade provided by trees makes for natural, outdoor planting areas for your garden or other arborist activities.
What Type of Tree Should You Get?
The answer to this question often depends on budget and time. Usually, mature trees provide the most benefit but are more costly and difficult to install without the help of a professional.
Young, seedling trees are more affordable but require attention and care. While cheaper, seedlings need more time to grow before you can experience the full benefits that mature trees provide.
