Imagine big beautiful trees without the wait.Plant Fast Growing Trees
Isn't that the best kind to plant for your landscape enhancement?
When considering trees to add to your property or commercial establishment, few people want to wait for years and years to appreciate a full-bodied mature tree. Many folks, however, are unaware that there is an abundance of rapid growers that can provide incredible shade, privacy, low maintenance and stunning blooms in their landscape. Instead, most choose a little sapling that takes years of patience and attention to develop and nurture into maturity.
Let's be honest; trees contribute to the value of your home because they add instant curb appeal. Healthy trees absorb carbon dioxide, converting it to oxygen. Also, the Council of Tree and Landscape Appraisers says that a healthy, mature tree can boost the value of a home between $1,000 and $10,000.
