The truth is, there is actually an easy way to add value to your property now. In this case, it can be said money grows on trees. Simply add some trees to your landscape design to increase property value.
Benefits of a Green Landscape
Buyers Love Tree Landscaping
Whether it’s newly planted trees or fully matured trees, it is true that buyers are attracted to well-landscaped areas. Recent studies have shown good landscape design combined with tree coverage can help increase a property’s value by up to 30 percent. Easily becoming a simple way to impress buyers before they even walk onto the property. According to the Council of Tree and Landscape Appraisers, “A mature tree can often have an appraised value of between $1,000 and $10,000." It’s no surprise mature trees not only brighten your yard, but they also add tremendous value to a property.
Trees Save Energy
Tree coverage is also a great way to reduce a property’s cooling and heating costs. During the summer, tree coverage offers shade which help lower cooling costs. In the winter, trees protect properties from cold winter winds and rain further lowering any heating costs. Healthy, durable trees have a direct impact on energy consumption ultimately lowering utility costs while benefitting the environment.
Trees clearly represent a potentially valuable way to increase property value while also creating a more aesthetically pleasing environment.
