Planting fruit trees on your property adds to its value and enhances your family’s lifestyle, but the decision to do so also has larger benefits to the community and society. Let’s explore a few of the advantages you will enjoy when you buy fruit trees in the Port Charlotte area. If the information motivates you to go forward, stop in at Beltran’s Nursery and Landscape. We would love to advise and assist you with your landscaping plans!
Appreciation of Nutrition and the Process of Growing Food
When you purchase your Orange, Tangelo, Tangerine, Lemon, or Cocktail citrus trees from Beltran’s Nursery and Landscape, you gain a locally grown tree that will thrive in the local climate. While the initial seasons after planting might require a bit of maintenance, the tree will grow and produce with minimal care after this period. Your entire family will benefit from the nutritious fruit that your tree yields and will learn to appreciate the natural process of food production.
Help the Environment
In the U.S. alone, 10 percent of fossil fuels are burned by shipping, packing, transporting and storing food. Burning fossil fuels is believed to be a major cause of global warming. If everyone would plant fruit trees, they could contribute substantially to lowering carbon emissions. Trees serve as a filter, cleaning carbon from the air and transforming it into breathable oxygen. Imagine the genuine changes that could be made if every property in Florida planted a fruit tree; the environmentally difference would be significant.
Lower Your Utility Expenses
By planting fruit trees on your property, you can lower your energy bills and conserve energy. Add shade to your yard and your home, but be careful not to plant your trees too close to other buildings or trees. Doing so could inhibit their growth and damage the structures.
Manage Water and Drainage
In the age of climate change, managing water and drainage can be a problem when major storms occur. The potential for erosion, runoff, and pollution are all real consequences of this difficulty managing storm water. If your property is usually soggy, planting fruit trees can help you deal with water management while reaping the benefits of growing fruit for your family.
Enhance the Neighborhood
When you improve the curb appeal of your home, it’s good for the entire neighborhood. The value of your home also has an effect on that of your neighbors. The inclusion of citrus in your neighborhood will make everyone’s property look better, and you might occasionally have a few extra pieces of fruit to share!
After considering the larger benefits of choosing to buy fruit trees for your property in Port Charlotte, keep in mind the individual benefits as well. You’ll be able to savor the fresh fruit, the refreshing fragrance, and the aesthetic appeal of your new tree. We’re happy to help with tree selection and installation.
