When you’re getting ready to put your home on the market, there’s plenty to consider and prepare for, especially if your concern is increasing your home’s value before you list it. From painting your home’s interior to cosmetic repairs, it may be difficult to know where to start, but one of the most important considerations when you’re getting ready to put your home up for sale is its curb appeal.


Improving curb appeal can help you sell your home for a lot more money, but you might not have considered how the appearance of your tree’s can improve the worth of your home.

Tree Trimming Services & Curb Appeal

If you’re looking for ways to increase your home’s curb appeal, one of the best decisions you can make is investing in tree trimming and pruning services. Not only can it clean up the appearance of your landscape, but it also makes the trees on your property healthier and more vital.


 In this guide, our tree trimming experts at Vital Tree Service in Minnesota break down how tree trimming can help you sell your home.

1. Tree Trimming Decreases the Potential for Property Damage

Trees growing too close to a home or certain areas of a property can end up causing damage down the road. Potential homebuyers may be hesitant to purchase a home that has the possibility of incurring damage after they buy.


Plus, tree branches that grow near homes can be hazards to children, pets, and neighbors, especially when a storm causes them to break off.


Another of the most common issues that may put off potential buyers is a tree’s roots. If a tree is growing close to a home, its roots may end up causing extensive and costly damage to the home’s foundation. In cases where the roots may end up damaging a home, it may be necessary to remove the tree entirely before it occurs.


2. Tree Trimming Offers a More Attractive Landscape

Healthy, attractive trees increase a home’s value and indicate a well-cared for property. Trimming and pruning trees helps shape their appearance in a more attractive manner and add to their curb appeal. The most important step is to cut away dead or unattractive branches.


Additionally, one of the most common mistakes made by homeowners placing their homes on the market is to overlook trees that obstruct the view of a home from the street. Beautiful siding and windows should be visible and not blocked by overgrown foliage. 

3. Tree Trimming Makes Your Existing Trees Healthier

If your tree has damaged or less healthy branches, they can be harmful to the rest of the tree. They can also post a potential risk to other healthier trees on your lawn.


Additionally, pruning away some of a tree’s branches can make room for the other branches to grow and thrive. It can also open up the tree canopy to allow healthy growth on the ground below.

4. Tree Trimming or Removal Gets Rid of Invasive Pests

Invasive pests can destroy trees and other elements of your landscaping. If you have beautiful ash trees around your yard, you don’t want them to be destroyed by the emerald ash borer.


Unfortunately, these beetles are a common pest in the Twin Cities area. Once they establish themselves in your yard, they can completely ruin your trees. But, with consistent tree care and removal of infected trees, your yard will stay looking green and healthy.
