You would be very surprised at how many property owners do not take into account the value tress can add or deduct from their property. You may be one of those people and that’s why you chose to read the title of this article. Others reading this may already be aware that trees can have a positive or detrimental effect on an appraiser’s final valuation of a property.
Here are just some of the reasons that you should hire an arborist to assess the tree situation on your property. It doesn’t matter whether you have just one or two or a whole collection of trees in your home, an arborist will be able to help you add value to your property.
What is an arborist? – find out from Wikipedia.
1. Trees in unfavorable positions
Some tress on your property may look nice, but in fact they will need a lot of maintenance in the future, or worse still, the roots of the tree could negatively affect the building’s structure. Some people don’t realize roots have already started to put pressure on the building itself or on other building on the property.
When an appraiser comes in to assess your home, he/she is highly likely to be trained to look out for trees that could cause a potential issue in the future that would incur costs to anyone considering purchasing the property.
The most important point to make here is that you should not try to remove the tree yourself. Hire the services a tree surgeon.

2. Strategically Placed Trees Add Value to Your Property
Another reason a tree surgeon’s services could be important is to let you know where and which types of trees will add value to your property. This also means that if you are thinking of removing a tree, you can be advised correctly on whether you are devaluing your property by doing so.
A lot of people like to add evergreen trees to their property for privacy. Their thick bushy green colored make-up is not only pleasing on the eye versus a wood fence, they also give the same or similar privacy a wood fence would offer.
3. Hiring a Tree Surgeon (arborist) Before an Appraiser Visits Your Property
If you have thick hedges or a lot of trees on your property, then hiring an arborist before an appraiser comes to value your home makes for the perfect first impressions. Overgrown trees and hedges can look pretty unattractive and give the place an eerie feel to it.
However, imagine walking into a property where the trees and hedges are cleanly cut – it gives a much better impression (almost like having a haircut before you go to a job interview).
