No plants make a greater contribution to the enjoyment and value
of a home than healthy trees and shrubs. Trees serve as the
framework of the landscape, give a feeling of permanence, and
influence the microclimate - from temperature modification to
air purification. Shrubs help bring the tree canopy down, adding
privacy and providing a backdrop for flowers and lawn. Well-chosen
plant material can add 10-20 percent to a property's value--a
worthwhile investment, indeed!
