The Value of a Tree

value of a treeHow much is a tree worth?

We already love trees but this is an interesting perspective.

It’s harder to take them for granted when you put a dollar value to them.  This is in addition to the aesthetic value trees bring to your property. The value of a tree may be more than we tend to think.

It reads:

“Of concern to all! A tree is worth $193,250. According to Professor T.M.Das of the University of Calcutta. A tree living for 50 years will generate $31,250 worth of oxygen, provide $62,000 worth of air pollution control, control soil erosion and increase soil fertility to the tune of $31,250. Recycle $37,500 worth of water and provide a home for animals worth $31,250. This figure does not include the value of fruits, lumber or beauty derived from trees. Just another sensible reason to take care of our forests.”
