Money Can Grow On Trees

If asked, most people would probably assume (correctly) that houses with trees sell for more money than houses without trees; however, far fewer people would be able to correctly guess the size of the price difference.

According to the U.S. Forest Service's Pacific Northwest Research Station, having a tree in front of an urban house increases the home’s sale price by an average of $7,130! Even if you don't plan on selling, that same tree can provide you with serious energy savings while you live in the home.
