The Benefits of Good Tree Care:

Properly spaced and pruned trees don't compete as hard for the essential light, water and nutrients so they are less likely to be under stress. This means they are more likely to be healthy and disease resistant. With proper light, food, and pruning, a tree can grow to a more pleasant shape and live longer. It is far better to have a few well pruned and properly spaced trees than to have a lot of trees bunched up together. While they may grow upward faster when bunched up, the growth is poorly supported and the trunks tend to be thin and vulnerable to high winds. Properly cared for trees will consume less water overall and create an environment that is much more fire resistant, especially if they are kept clear of dead wood. The best time to make a tree care plan is before planting the tree, or as soon as you become the owner. Aesthetic quality and monetary value all depend on proper care during the life of the tree.

Here are some statements found on the internet regarding the value of trees:

"A mature tree can often have an appraised value of between $1,000 and $10,000."
- Council of Tree and Landscape Appraisers

"Landscaping, especially with trees, can increase property values as much as 20 percent."
- Management Information Services/ICMA

"Trees properly placed around buildings can reduce air conditioning needs by 30 percent and can save 20–50 percent in energy used for heating."
- USDA Forest Service

"Healthy, mature trees add an average of 10 percent to a property’s value."
- USDA Forest Service
