Can a tree or well-landscaped yard really make a difference to your property's value? You bet.Green house with beautiful curb appeal. View of three car garage and driveway

A mature tree in the front of a house increases a home's sales price by an average of $7,130. If that tree is part of a well-kept landscape, it could increase your home value by 5% to 11%.

That means that you can expect to see about a 109% return on every $1 you invest in your landscaping.

Curb Appeal is among the more obvious reasons a tree can add value to your property. A visually aesthetic, properly cared-for landscape, including the trees, can be an eye-catching feature for potential homebuyers. This can be a great first impression for people driving by, visiting, or purchasing the home.
