Trees are an important part of any home’s landscape, but it’s important to do your research before planting anything. Beasley recommended homeowners particularly look out for any trees with leaves or flowers that might create a mess in the yard. “Some trees just tend to be more messy than others," he said. "Constant leaf rain is not something that will positively attract a potential homebuyer. When fall comes, they will just know it will give them a hard time."
