Nothing balances the visual beauty your landscapes need than gracing a yard with well-established trees. Of course, you can buy saplings and wait generations for them to grow, but why? You can enjoy the benefits of mature trees now! Get shade on that deck or patio and place the perfect specimen shade tree front and center at your home.
Get instant privacy to block unwanted sightlines and yes....maybe even those neighborly views. Not to mention, a privacy screen or windbreak that reduces wind velocity can make living in a protected area a much more pleasant experience.
* Ex: See an Instant Shade style privacy screen in the picture below.
The most tangible bang from your bark comes from energy savings. Trees properly placed around your home can reduce your air conditioning needs by 30% and save 20% to 50% in heating costs, according to the USDA Forest Service. The U.S. Department of Energy says three properly placed trees could save you $100 to $250 a year.
Plus, says the Forest Service, healthy, mature trees add an average of 10% to your home’s value.

Spading saves planting time and years of maintenance versus the smaller, younger trees. Spading can also eliminate the possible risk of mower damage that commonly occurs on younger, smaller trees. So save yourself from stunted growth time by planting a larger, healthier and more mature tree.
