Homeowners’ Tree & Shrub Investments Rise Nearly 50% During the Pandemic
MEMPHIS, Tenn., May 25, 2021 / PRNewswire / – TruGreen, the nation’s leading provider of lawn maintenance services that includes tree and shrub maintenance, found that 49 percent of Americans invested more in their trees and shrubs in 2020 than in previous years, according to a new one , jointly published survey with OnePoll. The survey asked 2,000 American homeowners with an outside area to analyze how they found solace during the pandemic, and over half (52 percent) of those surveyed said they updated or updated the facade of their home over time New plants and / or garden extensions have been added last year.
Despite the increasing investment in the exterior of a home among Americans, nearly half of homeowners surveyed are unsure how to properly care for their trees and shrubs. In addition to traditional care and maintenance, many homeowners face additional challenges from trees and shrubs, including disease (50 percent), climate damage (50 percent) and pest infestation (46 percent).
“From small everyday moments to adding $ 10,000 In the value of houses, trees and shrubs are a sensible – and worthwhile – investment. However, protecting these investments can require demanding maintenance. With tree and shrub health increasing among homeowners, knowledgeable and specialized maintenance is vital to ensure a thriving landscape, “said Brian Feldman, Director of Technical Operations and certified arborist at TruGreen. “Our trained and licensed specialists offer comprehensive phytosanitary plans tailored to each unique landscape to keep the plants healthy, protect them from unwanted pests and do their best.”

The survey found that Americans spent an average of 14 hours a week outside during the pandemic, an increase of three hours a week from the days before the pandemic.
