At Perkins Tree and Landscape Services, Inc., we understand that the value of trees reaches far beyond their aesthetics. From health to economic value, the benefit of trees is endless. We will share with you some important reasons to plant trees.
Property value and commerce increases significantly from trees. Throughout the country, homes with trees sell for about 20% more than those without. Similarly, when businesses and store-fronts are surrounded by trees, statistics show that consumers are willing to spend about 12% more.
Trees save energy. Their shade can save up to 30% in air conditioning costs. As a documented example, in the state of Washington D.C. more than $2.6 million is saved in air conditioning costs per year from the shade of trees.
Not only do they help with saving energy, but also improve the actual air quality. They absorb pollutants and reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere! We can only be doing our health well to ensure that we are surrounded by trees.
In places with heavy amounts of rain, trees aid in the process of water soaking into the ground rather than running off the surface. They help prevent sewer backups and flooding.
Importantly, trees improve overall health and quality of life. They add beauty which is visually enhancing to the eyes and can therefore lift our spirits, and provide relief for stress. Research has shown that it is easier to concentrate in the presence of trees. They truly work miraculous wonders on our well-being.
You can trust us to plant the most aesthetically pleasing, beneficial trees for your home, business, commercial place, or community. Contact Perkins Tree & Landscape Services, Inc. for more information.
