Ever wonder what your tree is worth, both environmentally and financially? Want to know the value of adding another tree, and which trees add the most value to your home and property? This article offers a great tool to do just that!
Trees are pretty, trees are desirable, and they’re often considered assets to a property and community.

Now you can attach actual figures to the trees you’re considering planting or those that already are on your property.
In addition, you can see just how a given tree can aid the environment by, for example, reducing energy consumption (just consider shade trees that cut your air conditioning demand) and CO2 emissions.
Here’s a calculator, https://www.arborday.org/calculator/index.cfm to help you determine some of the environmental benefits associated with planting trees.
