The Value of Your Trees
Most people have some knowledge of the value trees and shrubs have on a property. They create beauty on the property, purify the air around us, act as a sound barrier, produce oxygen, and contribute to saving energy from the cooling shade in the warm months and reduce wind in the colder months.
Four Factors in Tree Value
Size: The size and age of a tree is sometimes irreplaceable.
Species or Classification: Trees that are durable, adaptable, and free from objects are most valuable.
Condition: A healthy, well-maintained tree had a higher value
Location: A tree in your yard may be worth more than one growing in the woods. A tree standing alone often has a higher value than one in a group. A tree near your house or one that is a focal point in your landscape tends to have greater value. The site, placement, and contribution of a tree to the overall landscape help determine the overall value of the plant attributable to location.
