If you invest in one type of plant for your landscaping, invest in a tree. The environmental benefits are clear: Trees provide shade for your home, they provide habitat for wildlife and they absorb CO2 emissions. But they also have value; a mature tree can add $1,000 to $10,000 to the valuation of your home. An early investment in a young tree on your property can mature and grow into almost a literal Money Tree!
