5 Ways Trees Help Your Property & You

Trees for Tucson

Do you have trees in your yard?  Are they mature trees?  Trees help our environment.  They help people.  And, best viagra they help our homes.  Here are the five ways trees help us.

  1. They increase property values.  They can add as much as 10% to the value of your home.  If you have a $200,000 home, that adds $20,000 in value. (From  the Ohio Dept. of Natural Resources)
  2. Trees cool homes in the summer.  They can reduce your energy bills by 11.4% according to an Auburn University study.
  3. They help save water by slowing evaporation of irrigation water to areas that they shade.
  4. Trees help bring nature into your yard by giving animals a shelter and food.
  5. Trees help people psychologically.  Areas with tree have a lower crime rate.  And, it’s been shown that patients with views of trees heal faster than those without views of trees.

Remember that trees that are native to your area will do the best.  In Arizona this is important because we have such hot summers.  And, trees often must go for periods of time without water.
