A few folks over in Fourth and Gill neighborhood tried in vain to influence a 60 day new resident not to cut down a tree on his property. He has stuck by his plan. Primarily because everyone has warned him that the tree limbs will be a constant distraction.
This is the most interesting part in the article “Property assessors believe the tree added an estimated $15,000-20,000 worth of value to the property alone.
“You’ve got the nicest tree in the neighborhood, it’s healthy and adds an almost $20,000 value to your house and you still cut it down,” Brace said. “Deductive reasoning will tell you to let it be.”” David Brace is with the City of Knoxville.
I wonder what the assessors appraised the two trees on the Auburn campus and how much the value declined when the Alabama fan poisoned it. I think some people have gotten a little warped over at a certain tea room.
Just remember, based on the property assessors, you can under value your home by weed eating less.
Here is the article from the Big Metal Shed on the Hill, if you want to read it.
