As spring gets ever closer, it’s natural to start thinking of what you can do to improve your property’s curb appeal. If you’re looking to make your yard more vibrant this spring, learn more about tree planting and the many benefits it offers your property. Here is a closer look at why new trees could be the perfect addition to your yard this spring.
What Are the Benefits of Tree Planting?
1. Prevent Soil Erosion
Trees play a vital role in preventing excess soil erosion and water runoff. Roots absorb water that soaks into the ground while also holding soil in place. A tree’s leafy canopy also provides a barrier that reduces the impact of falling rain. Trees can help prevent flooding in your yard, and the presence of trees can even help prevent desertification of your area.
2. Improve Energy Usage
It’s no secret that trees provide plenty of shade — and depending on where they are placed, over time this can help lower your household energy costs. Strategic planting lets trees shade your home in a way that reduces heat absorption. As a result, you won’t have to run your air conditioner as often during the summer.
3. Increase Your Property Value
Trees help improve general air quality and bring natural beauty to your yard. Thanks to these and other benefits, trees provide a psychological boost for prospective buyers which can result in as much as a 19% increase in your property value. Mature, well-cared-for trees will have the greatest positive impact.
