With a struggling economy and an even more troubled housing market, keeping the value of your home up is almost impossible. But just like making small improvements and investments within the home, maintaining the outdoor space can ensure that your home continues to gain value. One thing people don’t think of often is the value that large and healthy trees add to property in Marietta.

It may seem funny that trees are able to add to the property value of your Marietta home, but it takes time to grow a tree to the size that it benefits the owners and the property. Trees act like big sponges, and in climates that can be hot and humid, having a nice big shade tree does two things at once. On the one hand, you get the soaking ability of the tree’s roots, keeping your yard from turning into a swamp.

On the other hand, a nice big shade tree can bring down the temperature in your yard and even in your home, depending on where the tree is placed in relation to the house and the sun. Neighborhoods where all of the trees have been removed are hotter than neighborhoods where there are trees in every yard.

Overcoming Risks and Concerns with Regular Tree Service

For a while, the trend was to remove large or old trees from the yard of your home, because of fears of a branch or the entire tree coming down during a storm and causing damage or harm. But with a tree service company you can find ways to have beautiful trees and safety as well. Trees really aren’t all that complicated to care for, if you know what you’re doing.

Once a year, most trees benefit from a pruning. This can be a simple job or it can be complex, depending on how long it’s been since the last time the tree was cared for. With a once yearly tree service, an arborist can assess the health of the tree, too. If there has been any damage or if a branch is showing signs of disease, the tree can be trimmed so that your safety is maintained.

Regular tree service is a great way to keep your property value high, your life comfortable, and you can rest assured that you aren’t taking any unnecessary risks. Your trees can be cared for regularly, just like the rest of your property, ensuring that big, old trees are not a cause for alarm and that you can continue to benefit from the trees on your property.
