There are financial benefits of trees on your property.
Trees that are planted in the right place can reduce your air conditioning cost by 30% and save you 20 to 50 % in heating cost. Plus they add a 10% value to your home’s value.
Properly cared for trees can add value and beauty to your property.
Plant deciduous trees on the west side of your property to provide cooling shade.
Plant Evergreens on the north side, to block winter winds.
Do not plant too close to your property foundation, driveway or sidewalk, also know where your sewer lines are so you do not plant too close to your sewer lines so the roots do not grow into your sewer lines.
Always take into consideration what your tree will look like full grown before you plant it.
