Planting trees on your property has plenty of benefits. They provide oxygen, shade, and fruits, subdue carbon dioxide, and improve the aesthetic of the area. But there is a science to planting trees. One important factor to consider when planting trees is biodiversity. Having a variety of trees, shrubs, flowers, and plants offers pest and disease control, encourages a balanced ecosystem, and increases the value of your property. Sesmas Tree Service helped put together this article to review the benefits of tree diversity. If you have any specific questions or concerns, or if you would like to hire an ISA-certified arborist, then call Sesmas Tree Service today.
Offers Pest & Disease Control
There is a countless number of pests and diseases that affect trees, and it is near impossible to completely avoid them. However, there are steps to take toward reducing the risk of a complete takeover by pests and disease. One step you can take is providing diversity.
When you have too many of the same species, pests that thrive on or diseases that primarily infect that species will proliferate. A lack of biodiversity can cause those pests and diseases to thrive. For instance, Elm trees were extremely popular in the early 1900s and planted plentifully. The Dutch Elm Disease took over and quickly spread, killing more than 70 million Elm trees.
Encourages A Balanced Ecosystem
Plants and animals rely on one another to thrive. Planting a diverse variety of trees and plants invites bees, bunnies, birds and other animals to turn your area to a paradise. A certified arborist can help you choose the appropriate plants, trees, and shrubs to encourage a balanced ecosystem.
Increases the Value of Your Property
A variety of trees, plants, and flowers will beautify your property with an assortment of colors, patterns, and scents. This enhanced curb appeal is sure to increase the value of your property. In fact, a professional landscape and trees are estimated to increase the value of a residential property by up to ten percent. If you are looking to sell your home in the future, then getting started on improving your curb appeal can increase the number of prospective buyers and improve the value of the property.
