Commercial tree care in properties can bring huge benefits to your business. Studies have shown trees have a large impact on the way people view and value their surroundings. According to a research list compiled by Alliance for Community Trees (2011):
- Shoppers will travel further and longer to visit a district with high quality trees, and spend more time there.
- People have more favourable perceptions of communities with green roads.
- Visitors to well-treed central business districts will spend 9 to 12 percent more for products
- People will pay higher prices for goods in green communities. In one study, sports shoes were priced 7% higher in the green setting, and a sit down dinner or a flower bouquet were 10% higher.
- A study found 7% higher rental rates for commercial offices having high quality landscapes
Commercial Tree Care can be a vital asset for your Business
Research found businesses with views of trees had happier employees who were less likely to take sick leave.
Trees can be a vital asset to any business and well worth the cost of any maintenance. A skilled Arborist can help make the trees on your commercial property looking their best for a reasonable price. You can significantly reduce the amount of pruning required in the long term if you have your trees regularly worked on.
This will make the job much quicker, and therefore cheaper, to complete. A skilled Arborist will be able to prune young trees in such a way as to set them up well for the future. As they mature (and reach the stage where pruning becomes more expensive) they will need minimal attention.
Hire a skilled Arborist for your commercial tree management
The quality of the soil and the situation a tree is planted in can have a huge effect on the tree’s health, safety, and life expectancy.
A skilled Arborist can advise on many suitable trees for any site. The trees should be planted in a way that will ensure they have a long and healthy life. They can also improve the root area for existing trees to give them the best chance in the challenging urban environment.
Having your trees maintained does not need to be disruptive to your business. We have been using a low impact approach to commercial tree care by using battery powered chainsaws (which are much quieter than petrol ones). By chipping branches away from the site we reduce the amount of noise we are creating in the urban environment.
What to look for in a Commercial Tree Care Company
Choosing a tree maintenance company that is fully qualified, experienced, and works to industry best standards is vital. A business can add a lot of value to their area by keeping their trees in an excellent condition.
An individual who does not know what they are doing can do a lot of damage to any tree. A reckless chainsaw user can damage the tree so much they may never recover from it. Make sure you ask the right questions when selecting an Arborist. Our website has a very good guide for finding the best tree surgeons which you can find here.
