When you’re getting ready to put your home on the market, there’s plenty to consider and prepare, 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. One of the most important considerations when you’re getting ready to put your home up for sale is its 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 post, 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 which grow 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 down the road. 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 makes a more attractive landscape.

Healthy, attractive trees increase a home’s value. 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.


Additionally, trimming and pruning the trees in front of a home can add to the appearance of the trees themselves. One of the most important steps is to cut away dead or unattractive branches. Trimming and pruning trees also help shape their appearance in a more attractive manner.


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.
