Tree care

Joy Score: 9.2

The cost of regular tree care, according to professionals, is $2,000. That includes fertilizer, regular spraying and pruning, and the removal of one 30-foot tree. Realtors who responded to the survey estimate that homeowners make all of that back when they sell their home.

However, few Realtors said that it helped them close a sale (3%), although 46% recommended that a seller hire a tree care professional.

Nearly 70% of homeowners said they had a greater desire to be at home, and half said the project made them happier to be home. Their top reason they gave for hiring a professional was because it was time for a change.
