Becoming a homeowner means having a whole new set of responsibilities regarding maintenance and repairs on a home or property. While some projects are fine for homeowners to handle on their own, such as painting or cleaning gutters, other projects are best left to professionals to handle for safety and accuracy issues. Examples of this might include electrical repairs, plumbing issues, roof replacement, and tree diagnosis and treatment.

In Texas, shade trees are some of the most valuable parts of a residential property because of the beauty they add and the shade they provide.

In today's Embark Services blog post, we discuss some ways to help make trees more stable on residential properties to prevent further damage or tree toppling.
People want beautiful trees that offer shade and aesthetic curb appeal, but no one ever wants the damages and expenses that can come from excessive tree growth or tree debris. Unfortunately, there are instances where the damages caused by trees far outweighs the benefits they provide to property owners. Today's Embark Services blog post highlights three ways to help reduce or completely avoid property damage from trees, and how proactive tree care can help.
Trees are some of the most important aspects of a residential landscape. In addition to providing beauty and tranquility to a property, they can also provide ample shade, which reduces heating and cooling costs while increasing property values. For residential properties with little to no trees on the site, adding trees can be a worthy investment.
To the casual observer, it might seem as though pruning branches off a tree might harm its health. After all, trees in the forests and woods aren't pruned by anyone, and they grow just fine on their own. Plus, it's hard to image how wounding a tree can do it good. However, trees on our residential properties experience different needs and threats to their health compared to trees that grow on their own, so pruning can be extremely beneficial for trees in our urban and suburban areas.
While we all want trees that are beautiful, healthy, and full of green foliage, the truth is that our trees can sometimes fall into poor health and display signs of distress. One of the most obvious signs that tree health is failing is when leaves turn brown and appear burnt, which is known as leaf scorch. In today's blog post, we explain the three types of leaf scorch that can impact trees, and what treatment options are available.
From afar, trees can appear in good health and relatively stable. However, a closer inspection can reveal problems ranging from the minor to the urgent, but many property owners don't look at their trees close enough to notice until it's too late and damage is done. The main issues are that property owners don't know to look at their trees on a regular basis, they don't know what signs to look for, or how to handle the issues they discover.
When a homeowner decides to put their home on the market, the owner typically focuses on making the inside of the home look as appealing and welcoming as possible. They might go to the trouble of repainting, replacing fixtures and appliances, and even upgrading countertops and flooring. However, one of the most important parts of a home isn't found on the inside, but outside the home. Trees can play a tremendous role in attracting potential buyers and improving the overall aesthetic of the property.
