How Trees Benefit Us – October 2019

Here are some ways trees help our bottom line:

Trees Save Energy

They protect our homes from the sun in our homes so we use less electricity for air conditioning. That means fewer greenhouse gases need to be produced in generating power.

Lower Cooling Bills
Evergreens that block winter winds can save 3 percent on heating.

Trees increase a home’s value.
Homes in neighborhoods with mature trees sell for at least 10 percent more than in neighborhoods without trees. On average, each large front yard tree adds 1 percent to a home’s sales price. Large trees can add 10 percent to property value.

Trees are good for business.
Shoppers will travel farther to shop in tree-lined business districts and tend to spend more, according to research. In tree-lined commercial districts, shoppers report more frequent shopping, longer shopping trips, and willingness to spend 12 percent more for goods.

Trees pay us back.
The many things trees do for us have a great number of benefits. A single large tree produces benefits worth more than $2,500 over its 40-year lifespan. Each year, the more than 300 million trees in Washington State that provide services whose estimated total worth is $200 million by capturing air pollution, storing carbon, and reducing energy costs.
