Valuable trees means valuable property
Consider the following: Your trees are valuable assets. First, trees increase your property value by as much as 20%. Second, trees provide a number of important benefits. Reducing energy bills by providing shade, absorbing pollutants in the air, soil, and water, cleaning carbon dioxide from the air, and lessening noise pollution are just some of the benefits trees generously give us.
Whether you are looking to add value to your existing property, sell your property for a higher price, or command higher rent rates from tenants, your trees should be an important consideration.
Many tree service companies are able to fell trees, trim trees, and remove stumps, but they do not have the expertise with which to identify, diagnose, and solve tree disorders. As such, they are unable to recommend solutions that heal and preserve trees.
To offer tree care services requires a great deal of knowledge about tree physiology, diseases, root systems, pests, abiotic factors, as well as the surrounding environment. But this expertise does not translate into offering services that are more expensive. As a matter of fact, tree care services are generally cheaper than tree removal services.
According to various surveys and cost analyses performed by USDA Forest Services, municipalities, and the private sector, it is estimated that the average cost to remove a tree is somewhere around $500-$700. In contrast, tree care services (fertilization, pest control, etc.) generally range from $50 to $200 per tree. Not only that, but tree care involves less risk to workers and property. Best of all, by caring for your trees you have maintained and enhanced these assets rather than removing them.
The end result of tree care? You have saved money and increased your property value. Contact Trees "R" Us, Inc. today for all your tree care needs.
