Raising the standard in Arbocare
Clients from Bellevue to Woodinville tell us “We just want more light. It is so dark in our house” (or office). They usually want to remove a tree or trees entirely to accomplish their goals. While tree removal is a quick and viable option it is seldom the best solution. Trees add significant value to a property in numerous ways. In Issaquah and Bellevue they act as sound buffers protecting a home from unwanted freeway noise. They are nature’s air conditioners, keeping Sammamish cooling costs down in the summer and moderating heating expenses Woodinville in the winter. They cleanse the very air that we breathe. Mature, healthy trees add to property values. Realtors in Redmond and Kirkland feel that they have strong positive impacts on a homes salability. A recent Journal of Environmental Horticulture article indicated that trees can raise the perceived value of a home by up to eleven percent. And then there is their ecological role and aesthetic impact.
Generally careful thinning can allow 30-50% more light into a given area. Raising the skirt of a tree, that is selecting certain lower branches for removal, can also have a dramatic impact on light levels. Consulting with one of our certified arborists will help to determine which treatment is best for your tree(s).
