For the last few years, I’ve been getting more homeowners questioning the large trees in their yards. After ice storms, hurricane force winds, and now record snowfalls, the trees on our properties have taken quite a beating. Before you decide to get rid of your trees in favour of less yard work, there are a few things you might want to consider.
According to the Appraisal Institute of Canada, and Tree Canada, trees are not just important for the environment; they have real value when it comes to your actual home. Trees on your property can be worth more then $19,000 and save you more than $175 on your energy bills.
