As you might know, adding natural stonework to your landscaping is a surefire way to get a great return on investment. Yet there’s one other thing that you may not know of that will yield a huge return on investment: having tree services help you add more lush, green trees to your yard. Don’t believe it? Consider the following.
Trees Can Help Reduce Your Heating Bill.
Believe it or not, trees can actually help you reduce your heating bill. Research shows that planting windbreaks and shade trees can actually reduce your home’s winter heating bills by 15% and air conditioning needs by as much as 75%. Those are not small numbers, no matter how you look at them.
Trees Can Trim Your Energy Costs.
Not only will tree services help you make your home literally more green, they’ll also help you make your home figuratively more green, too — that is, more sustainable. Trees not only help homeowners reduce their heating bills but also their overall energy costs, too. In fact, it takes only three properly placed trees to help a household save between $100 and $250 a year in energy costs. That’s more than enough of a return on investment to quickly recoup the cost of planting those trees.
Trees Add Value to Your Home.
Trees can also directly increase the value of your property. Literally just planting them will make your home more valuable. Studies show that adding great landscaping can add up to 28% to the overall home value. That means you can use trees to increase your home’s value by almost one-third.
Yes, sunrooms and other home additions can certainly increase your property’s value, but so can trees. They can also help you reduce your heating and energy costs, too.
