Did you know this about trees?

Independent studies have shown the beauty of a well-planted tree lined street and neighborhood can raise property values by as much as 15%, proving that trees increase commercial and residential real estate values.


Ohioans planted roughly 27,000 trees last year, leading the country for the 37th consecutive year for the state with the most Tree City USA communities. According to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, 241 cities, villages and townships participated in the program.
