Benefits of Having Trees on your Property:

  • Trees produce oxygen, improving air quality
  • Reduces noise pollution
  • Provides shelter for animals
  • Adds aesthetic to property 
  • Increases the value of the home 

Improved Air Quality

Trees can act as a filter for air pollutants, improving overall air quality around our homes. Trees can provide a natural air conditioning system for households by creating shade. Not only do they purify the air around us, but they also reduce energy expenditure from AC units which helps to conserve resources. Cleaner air reduces the need for high-energy air conditioning units. 

Provides Shelter for Animals

Another benefit of having trees on your property is that they provide animal shelter. Just think about where birds or squirrels would live without them. More than likely, your home would become infiltrated by them. 

Animals also utilize trees to store their food. They use this defense mechanism, so their grub doesn’t get taken by other animals. Besides hiding food from other animals, they also use trees to store their food for long periods. 

Added Aesthetic to your Property

Maintain your Healthy Trees

Trees play an essential, interconnected role in the health of a local ecosystem. Deciduous trees provide necessary nutrition for bees, squirrels, and many other species through pollen, sap, and fruit production – sustaining animal life and providing oxygen to breathe.

Healthy trees are also less likely to fall on your property, so it is crucial to have your trees pruned and adequately cared for.

Maintaining healthy trees is essential, but it may be challenging to ascertain a tree’s health. Our certified arborists can help you determine the health of your trees. Before considering cutting down one of your trees, contact B&R Tree Service

Preventing Your Trees from Depreciating Your Home’s Value

As a homeowner, no doubt you want the value of your abode to go up! Knowing which decisions can make or break this goal is vital – consider research into factors that will help increase home values and use good judgment when making choices. Tree care maintenance is a wise investment that will pay off in the long run.

Here are some ways to prevent your home’s value from decreasing: 

  • Have your trees pruned 
  • Remove dead branches
  • Ensure it gets adequate sunlight
  • Call for tree care services when it needs attention 

Learning About Trees on Your Property

Give our certified arborists a call at B&R Tree Service for up-to-date information on your trees. We stay on top of industry standards and best practices to maintain your trees. 

Planting Trees

Trees can be great gifts to anyone who loves spending time outdoors. Planting a tree can increase the curb appeal of a home as well. Before you decide to go out and buy just any tree, you should be educated on which one to purchase. 

Always look at the care tags on a tree. This way, you’ll know what and how much care to give it. These tags will also notify you of how much sunlight they need and water. Planting a new tree is a perfect way to produce shade too!

As a new homeowner looking to plant a new tree, you are aware of how far to plant the tree from the house. Depending on the type of tree, they can get big very fast. They should not be too close to the house when they grow in size. 

How to Tell if a Tree is too Close to a House

Looking at the branches, you can quickly tell how close a tree is to a house. If the branches are hanging over close to your windows or roof, it’s too close. Another way to tell is simply by measuring. 

As a rule of thumb-trees should be planted at least 12-15 feet away. 

You don’t have to make these decisions on your own. Let us care for your trees. Our professional tree care services will make you proud you called in the first place. 

Tree Maintenance 

The easiest way to maintain trees on your property is through regular maintenance. Tree maintenance can turn a sick tree into a healthy one. It can also eliminate any safety hazards. 

By cutting down dead branches and pruning, you’re prolonging the life of your trees. Be careful, though, if you plan on pruning your trees. Working with power tools can be risky. 

Tree Pests

Termites can be a significant pain as they are known to eat through wood. Termite damage needs to be taken seriously, or it can eventually lead to problems inside the home. Getting rid of termites can be arduous, but our certified arborists will ensure your trees are taken care of.

One way of knowing if there is any damage to your trees is by looking at the bark. If the bark looks chewed through, you could have termite issues.
