In this WSMV4 article, Rob Kraker from the South East Nashville office shares how trees can lower your electric bill and raise your properties value.
Just like how we cool off under a shady tree in the summer heat, our homes do the same thing; the more trees you have on your property, the more money you could be putting in your pocket.
According to the American Power Association, trees in our yards can actually reduce our utility bills by up to 50%.
Trees are the most beneficial when planted on the south or southwest side of a home. Different factors like the leaf’s transpiration, the shade the trees give off, and what types of trees are planted make a big difference.
“I always suggest having an arborist out to tell you what kind of trees to put where,” said Rob Kraker, the District Manager of The Davey Tree Expert Company.
