Value of Trees
Why is Tree Protection Important?
Trees provide environmental and economic value annually. Trees increase property values and save on operating costs. Watering, heating, cooling, storm water run-off, and CO2 reduction are just a few of the cost savings we get from trees. Tree removal can cost $500-$1000, per tree, making trunk injection a very cost effective solution. Not to mention, and you save the tree! Tree Benefit Calculator

What is Trunk Injection?
Arborjet equipment injects pesticides, fungicides, and fertilizers directly into the tree. Chemicals are sealed inside and quickly distributed throughout the trunk, branches, and leaves. The Tree Injection Advantage
How Does Arborjet Work?
- A few small holes are drilled into the tree.
- Plastic plugs are inserted (Arborplug)
- A needle inserts through Arborplug
- Your pesticide or fertilizer is injected into the vascular system (xylem).
You know that trees are valuable, but just how valuable is a single tree?
- In your yard
- On your street
- At your local park
- Where you shop
One single tree can provide a value of $50-$200 each year. Use the National Tree Benefit Calculator
Here's an example:
Here is an example of a 15 inch diameter ash tree in the Midwest.
This 15 inch Ash Tree provides overall benefits of: $144 every year.
Treatment of this ash tree with trunk injection can preserve these benefits and protect against future pests.
