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.

My Name is Carrie and I live in Virginia Beach. I hired Tarzan Tree Service after hearing about them through a friend. I had always gone with another Tree Service so I was a little hesitant to try someone new. I scheduled an estimate and within 24 hours one of the owners was there. He presented himself in a professional manner and gave me a very competitive price. I was a little concerned about their legitimacy due to the low price so I checked out their website and found printable copies of their license and insurance on the site with phone numbers to verify it all. When they showed up to do the job the entire crew was clean-cut and courteous.  They gave my son a ride on the equipment before starting the job. These men removed 8 huge trees over my house and back yard within one day and left the yard cleaner than they found it. There is not a better tree company out there...

Thank you Tarzan Tree, these guys rock!!!
