How Trees Can Boost a Home's Sale Price

By Sanette Tanaka

Homes with "street trees," trees planted between the sidewalk and street, sell for $7,130 more than homes without, research finds.

In addition, homes with street trees sold 1.7 days more quickly than homes without street trees. Does having green space in your neighborhood make a difference to you?

NOTE: Many good arguments for and against the planting of trees next to streets...New tree plantings should be heat tolerant varieties (like crepe myrtles) or the root systems will cook, and the tree dies in less than 7 years!
