Trees become a liability for the property owner when the tree is failing in health and with a little wind or nothing at all, it falls and causes damage. Understanding the health of the trees on your property is so important and something we don’t think about until it is too late.
Storms during the spring and summer months in the south can be brutal to endure. A few minutes of wind, rain, and hail can lead to a very expensive cleanup and repairs. The efforts a property owner takes before a storm is well worth it when compared to insurance deductibles, major repairs and cleanups. Seeing as problems during a storm are largely created by trees, wouldn’t knowledge about why trees cause so much damage be helpful?
There are certain trees on your property that are more susceptible to wind damage. Ensuring all the trees on your property are healthy is the key to saving yourself a great deal of worry, work and money. Here are a few areas to think about when it comes to the health and well-being of your trees:
- A study found 7% higher rental rates for commercial offices having highquality landscapes.
- Shoppers claim they will spend 9% to 12% more for goods and services in central business districts that have high quality tree canopies.
- Shoppers indicate they will travel a greater distance and a longer time to visit a district with a high-quality tree canopy and spend more time there once they arrive.
- Companies that provide their employees with interactions with nature also benefit. Research conducted showed that workers who could view nature from their desks had much better job and life satisfaction and better health.
