Are your trees worth saving?
In 1989, Dr. David N. Appel, a professor at Texas A&M University, developed a formula to help determine how trees affect home and property value.
"Two methods for predicting the value trees contribute to residential property value in the Austin,
Texas metropolitan area were tested. The formula method, used by professional plantsmen, and the
predictive-modeling method, using regression analysis, were used to predict the value of trees on
120 homesites. The value of the homes ranged from $30,000 to $600,000 and represented homes typical
of the Austin, Texas area. Trees on all homesites were evaluated with the ISA formula method and
given a dollar value. Independent variables representing the house and lot were used in the predictive
modeling method to determine the value that the trees contribute to the sales price. The value of the
trees derived by the formula method was found to represent 13 percent of the actual sales price of
homes while the value of trees derived by the predictive modeling method represented 19 percent." - Source: Dr. David N. Appel Forestry Service Texas A&M University (1989)
This would mean that if a home worth $300,000 lost all of its trees in 1989, that the value of the home would have been reduced by $57,000. In addition, a home worth 1,000,000 would be reduced by $190,000. How much is your home worth today?

Stopping the Spread of Disease Killing Texas Oak Trees
Oak trees are a common sight in many Texas yards, providing much-needed shade for homeowners and habitat for native Texas wildlife. However, pruning the trees during the springtime can have unintended consequences that may leave trees in danger.
- Oak wilt is spread through tree wounds
- Infected trees can die within weeks of infection
- Millions of trees have died from oak wilt
Oak wilt is an often fatal, fungal disease that affects oak trees throughout Texas. It's a brutal disease that disables the water-conducting system and sometimes spreads when roots graph together underground. According to the Texas A & M Forest Service, the condition can be spread any time of year, but circumstances are perfect in the spring according to the Texas A & M Forest Service.
There are ways to prevent the spread of the disease. The first is to avoid pruning during the spring. Oak wilt can also be found in spores under the bark of an infected tree. When there is damage to a tree, sap-eating beetles that may be carrying the disease bring the spores with them, infecting the new wounded oak.
But if an oak tree does get wounded and bark is removed, there is a simple step a property owner can take to try and prevent the spread: paint. The Texas A & M Forest Service recommends painting over tree wounds, stating any paint will do which deters bugs that may be carrying the disease.

How can you treat my trees if they have oak wilt disease?
Fungicide Treatment - The fungicide propiconazole (Alamo) can be used as a preventative to reduce oak wilt symptoms in live oaks when applied before infection. Limited success may also be achieved in trees with therapeutic injections during the earliest stages of infection. The fungicide is injected into the tree’s water-conducting vascular system through small holes drilled into the root flare at the base of the tree. Treatment success depends on the health condition of the candidate tree, application rate, and injection technique. Injection should be done only by trained applicators. [...Continue Reading]
