1st Time Home Owners SHOULD Know This

for Minot Realtors

Yes it's a Tree but that's not what I'm hoping you see.

Big TreeA big beautiful tree can provide welcome shade for your yard and for your home.

Trees are great for guests like birds and squirrels as well.

A tree like this one in our back yard is also great to hang a swing from, a climbing rope, a chain ladder, and a squirrel feeder (all of which we have on this tree.

One other thing a big beautiful tree can bring is lightning.

Of the 5 trees in my yard it is easy to see that two have had pretty sever lighting strikes. One tree is less that 8 feet from my sons bedroom.

lightning

Remember when planting trees near your home you are planting lightning rods as well. (not to mention kindling wood and foundation crackers).
