The winter season is upon us, St. Pete; however, if 2019 has taught us anything it is that the seasons fly by.

That’s where Arbor Source comes in. Yes, if your yard is flush with life-giving, shade-bringing trees, then you should probably have a certified arborist come around every now and again.

Mature trees raise home values

Your trees are a considerable investment. They’re both aesthetically pleasing and increase the value of your home. Take that straight to the bank, Tampa Bay. Seriously, a mature tree can increase your property value by as much as 14%.

It makes sense that you’d want to take good care of them. Did you know you should be getting your trees checked at least every two years? Yea, neither did we. It’s important make sure the trees structural integrity is still intact. The certified arborists at Arbor Source are consistently educating themselves on the latest issues plaguing plantlike in Florida.
