Here in Kingsport Tree removal is a rather common need by homeowners, considering the number of trees growing everywhere that we are blessed with. Although we know to trim or remove our trees when deemed necessary, many homeowners, however, may not realize how much regularly maintaining your trees can improve both your property’s appearance and value. You paint your house, mow your grass, and maybe add some statues or a birdhouse for decorative purposes, why would you not take care of your trees? They are often some of the biggest and most prominent “structures” on your property. Tree trimming or removal can make the world of difference. With that said, it is obvious that if tree service improves your property’s appearance and value, then it is fair to say that it should be considered a home improvement and maybe one you consider in the near future.
Here are two different angles on why tree removal should be your next home improvement project:
While we love our trees, there are times where they pose serious hazards. Dead and decaying trees risk falling on your home or on someone below, causing serious damage or injury. If you have trees close to powerlines, they risk causing serious power outages or fires. The roots of your trees can also wreak havoc on your home’s foundation, driveway, or patio if too close. If you are trying to sell your home, a misplaced tree can cause you some trouble. One thing forgotten is not just living trees still standing, but decaying fallen trees and rotting stumps. These become the perfect homes for pests and poisonous insects. They also become obstacles for children playing to trip and fall over (or worse, get stung by a poisonous insect!). Be sure to have all fallen trees and branches removed safely off your property, and your stumps grinded and removed, you will not regret it.
We understand that tree removal may not always be your best option. If a tree does not need to be removed, it is best to at least keep it trimmed and shaped nicely. Also, be sure to not have your tree’s branches dangling over a neighbor’s property – this could lead to a big headache. A well-kept yard and property improve the curb appeal of your home. The better, the curb appeal, the more value you can appraise your home at. The best part? Landscaping (including tree removal) can be tax-deductible if you are doing it for a rental property. The bottom line is that there are little downsides to keeping your property in top condition. Not only does it improve your property’s appearance if you live there, but it can also make you a substantial amount of extra money should you decide to sell your home and property.
