We all take pride in our homes, wanting to keep them looking nice while also protecting our monetary investment. That’s why many of us spend a considerable amount of time, and sometimes money, upgrading the interior and installing attractive flower beds and shrubs outside. But don’t forget about the health of your trees! Regular care and maintenance of your trees will also contribute to your home’s overall value, in several important ways.
Prevent damage. Preventing costly damages is the most obvious way that regular tree trimming and health checks can benefit your home. Dead or dying trees are at risk of falling, and this can lead to damages that must be repaired. And of course, if left unchecked, some diseases will spread to other trees and create an even bigger problem. You also want to keep limbs trimmed back, away from your home, to discourage pests from taking up residence in your attic, eaves, and walls.
Curb appeal. Obviously, increasing your curb appeal will help your home to look more attractive to potential buyers. Even if you don’t have plans to sell your home in the near future, regular maintenance now will prevent large and costly problems later, when you do want to sell.
Cost of upkeep. Most potential buyers understand the above issues, and are aware of the potential costs associated with sick or unstable trees, and damages to the home. And of course, they are also aware of the amount of work required to renovate a yard that has not been well maintained for many years.
If you have questions about the health and safety of your trees, or simply wish to improve the aesthetic value of your home, give us a call. We can offer our expert advice on tree trimming and removal, cleanup of fallen trees, or stump grinding, so that your home retains its curb appeal and monetary value for years to come.
