REASONS TO PROTECT YOUR TREES


Trees are immensely important to our surroundings. According to the Morton Arboretum, trees provide us the following benefits: Trees save energy.


They shade our homes, so we use less electricity for air conditioning.


Trees reduce heating bills.


Evergreens that block winter winds can save 3 percent on heating.


Trees increase our homes’ value.


Homes in neighborhoods with mature trees sell for at least 10 percent more than in neighborhoods without trees. On average, each large front yard tree adds 1 percent to a house’s sales price. Large trees can add 10 percent to property value.


Trees pay us back. Trees also provide substantial economic benefits. A single large tree produces benefits worth more than $3,000 over its 40-year lifespan. Annually, more than 157 million trees in the seven-county Chicago region provide services whose estimated total worth is $195 million by capturing air pollution, storing carbon, and reducing energy costs.


SINCE TREES PROVIDE SO MUCH VALUE,


IT’S IMPORTANT TO PROTECT AND MANAGE OUR URBAN FORESTS.


Below are a few preventative measures to keep your trees healthy. Horticultural Oil


Horticultural Oil, usually referred to as “dormant oil,” is applied in late winter. It is imperative that it is applied when deciduous trees are dormant. There is a very small window to apply this treatment because the temperature must be above 40-degrees Fahrenheit and the trees must


be without leaves. Oil sprays, like Horticultural Oil, work to control insects that overwinter and lay eggs on the trees. This oil is effective because it cuts off the oxygen supply to the insect, ultimately killing them. Horticultural Oil is organic and helps reduce the need for pesticides in the growing season due to its repellent properties.
