In honor of Earth Day, here are 5 reasons to plant a tree.

1. Environmentally Conscious- Trees take carbon dioxide out of the air and replace it with Oxygen. This process is what keeps our air clean and breathable. Trees are nature’s air filter, without them, we wouldn’t last long on this planet. Planting a tree on your property can increase air quality and reduce unhealthy contaminants keeping you, and your family, safe.

2. Aesthetics- They’re just fun to look at. Just like people, trees are completely unique; no two are exactly the same. From Willows to Oaks to Pines, each species of tree provides a different look to a property, all naturally beautiful.

3. Value- Trees are worth something, more than planting and watering, they enhance a home. While it might be somewhat difficult to sell a tree, the properties they are on get sold more quickly. Homes with ‘excellent’ landscaping can expect sale value 6-7% higher than homes without, according to Clemson University. Even more interesting, 99% of real estate appraisers agree that good greenery has a positive impact on the salability of a home.

4. An Heirloom- It might not be able to sit down to Thanksgiving dinner, but a tree can be part of a family. Trees can get passed down from generation to generation, living for hundreds of years. They can be an important part of growing up too, being the place to put a tire swing or a treehouse.

5. Changing Seasons- With the exception of evergreens, trees change with the seasons. They warn of the changing weather and modify their appearance to suit each time of the year.

Trees are important for so many reasons, scientists and environmental groups continue to stress their importance. When you need tree service in Virginia Beach, don’t hesitate to give us a call.

I had three trees that needed to be cut back and got two estimates from other tree companies. I wanted to get one more estimate when a friend recommended Tarzan Tree Service. I am glad he did because they were professional, extremely thorough with the job and the safety of the workers and property. Plus their estimate for the job was more affordable than the other two companies. They showed up when they said they would, they finished the job in a timely manner, and did a full clean up. They have a wood chipper that they put the branches through so my wife could spread them around her garden this spring. My wife and me couldn't be happier.
