Share Your Love for Trees

Tamke is pursuing both Facebook and Linked-In as a means to better communicate with our clients and to also provide our “friends” with up to date real time information regarding the care of trees and shrubs. Additionally, we can instantly share disease, insect, and plant health concerns with this group when critical concerns arise. This information can then be “passed forward” if you choose.

Pros and Cons of Ash Trees

Ash, like all shade trees, provide value such as reduced heating and cooling costs, stormwater management, reduction in air pollution, and improved soil and water quality. But the benefits of our shade trees go well beyond these attributes. There’s the psychological, social, aesthetic, and sometimes a historical value along with the monetary one. Per the US Dept. of Agriculture, a 36″ Diameter White Ash tree can provide a savings of $301 a year to the property owner. In fact, a number of studies have shown that real estate agents and home buyers assign between 10 and 23 percent of the value of a residence to the trees on the property.
