Trees provide a great deal of value to property owners. When properly placed and cared for, they can save energy and contribute to the economy, environment and society. Of course, the key to getting the most out of your trees and shrubs is proper tree care and maintenance. Three tree services that help you get the most value for your property are tree and shrub pruning, disease treatments and pest prevention and tree-centric landscaping.
In order for a tree or shrub to do its part in adding value to your property, it needs to be healthy. Routine pruning is essential to the health of your trees and shrubs, which may be suffering to support the weight of a useless limb. Immediate removal of damaged or dead branches after a disease or storm has struck is also critical. In addition to tree and shrub health, pruning will help protect your home, building or property from damage during a storm.
Pruning also helps keep your property aesthetically pleasing due not only to the presence of healthy, balanced trees and shrubs but to the adequate sunlight and rain your lawn will receive.
It’s hard to know that a tree has a disease or infestation before it starts showing signs on its leaves or bark. Once that happens though, the tree isn’t as valuable to the property as it once was. That’s why disease treatments and pest prevention are so important in maintaining and increasing the value of your property.
Before treating a tree for a disease or infestation, you should talk to a certified arborist, like those at Ostvig Tree Care, for a diagnosis (or what the tree is showing signs of). After a certified arborist has properly identified a disease or infestation, you can discuss treatment options to revive the health of your tree.
Just as you would stage the inside of your home to sell it, your landscaping can have influence on a potential buyer. Consider the layout of your property. Could it use more trees or shrubs? Would it benefit from a structural or ornamental retaining wall? These elements can add value to your property.
