Trees remain a critical asset in landscaping that provide significant benefits. The challenge for many property owners involves deciding which trees best serve their needs and interests. Residential and commercial property owners must consider the mature height and width when planting trees near buildings.

It’s also essential to consider the direct sunlight, soil conditions, and other factors to ensure your trees succeed. That’s why landowners typically conduct due diligence or consult with a tree nursery professional. It may also prove helpful to consider the following benefits and popular trees in your decision-making process.

Benefits of Trees in Landscaping

In terms of landscaping assets, trees typically require less maintenance and care than other plants. They produce deep root systems and withstand incidents such as drought and flooding. People usually select trees daily because they provide full shade and iconic fall foliage. All of these positives support improved property values. But the following benefits sometimes go unnoticed.

  • Enhanced Comfort: Integrating trees into a property promptly creates shaded areas. The type of tree you select does not necessarily have to enjoy a wide limb spread. Planting trees throughout the property peppers it with comfort spaces.
  • Save Money: Strategically integrating deciduous trees near your home can reduce the direct sunlight it receives during the hot summer. This can reduce the use of air conditioning and save money. During the cold winter months, leaves fall to the ground allowing direct sunlight to warm your home.
  • Environmental: Trees naturally process carbon and produce fresh air for people and wildlife. They help filter rainwater as it trickles into the aquifer we drink. Planting trees also augments the habitat options of birds and other wildlife.
  • Windbreak: Farmers and people with large tracts of land often plant rows of trees to serve as a protective windbreak. These natural barriers remain less expensive and more effective than fencing.

Residential and commercial property owners find that investing in trees proves a wise decision. When included in a landscape design, they generally help raise property values.
