Towering trees on property provide more than beauty — they increase the value of Crown Harbor units. Several recent nationwide surveys show that mature trees in a well-landscaped yard can increase the value of a house by 7% to 19%. A lush lawn with flower gardens is pretty, but didn't add to the value of a house, the surveys showed.

Stump Grinding

When trees die, the stumps are removed by East & West Bay Stump Removal. To avoid damaging any gas or water lines, the stump grinding is done to a minimum depth. As a result, it is often not possible to plant a new tree in the exact spot where a former tree was located.


Trimming / Removal

  • The budget for a full day of tree trimming by a 2 man crew is $1,260.
  • With 76 units in Crown Harbor, that is $16.58 per day per Owner.
  • The Crown Harbor grounds require about 8 pruning days per year.
  • So all of the already-planted trees effectively cost $132.64 per year per Owner.

Stump Grinding

  • Stump removal costs depend on size but are generally about $100 per stump.
  • This happens infrequently at Crown Harbor.
  • In 2016, 4 stumps were removed for $500.
  • The effective cost is $6.58 per year per Owner.
