Making a decision about landscaping your yard? The advice from Money Magazine about raising your property's value is to plant trees rather than shrubs or flowering plants. Experts Money consulted indicated that trees do historically increase the value of a property. The best trees to plant for future value according to these folks are hardwoods like Oaks and Elms. They suggest that you diversify your selections, so that if disease or blight strikes, you will have other varieties which are not impacted. While hardwood trees take many years to grow to maturity, they are solid additions to the beauty and, potentially, saleability of your house. Flowering trees take less time to develop, and mature to heights of 20+ feet, while the hardwoods grow to 40-50+ feet.
