Houston’s Trees: Weathering the Storm with Embark Services

As the warm winds of summer grace the Greater Houston area, so too does the looming presence of hurricane season. Here at Embark Services, a leading provider of award-winning tree care services, we understand the importance of safeguarding your commercial property’s valuable trees before a storm strikes. Our dedicated arborists combine their expertise with exceptional customer service to ensure your landscape thrives throughout the year, even in the face of challenging weather conditions.

Why Hurricane Season Prep Matters for Your Trees

Houston’s majestic trees not only enhance the beauty and serenity of your commercial property but also contribute to a healthier environment and provide shade for employees and visitors. However, during a hurricane, these very assets can become vulnerable. High winds can topple trees with weak structures or dead branches, causing significant damage to buildings, and landscaping, and even posing safety hazards.

Proper hurricane preparedness for your trees is an investment in the long-term health and safety of your property. By taking proactive steps now, you can minimize the risk of storm-related damage and ensure your trees continue to thrive for years to come.

Essential Pre-Hurricane Tree Care with Embark Services:

At Embark Services, we recommend a comprehensive approach to pre-hurricane tree care, focusing on four key areas:

  • Tree Trimming: Our certified arborists will meticulously assess your trees, identifying any dead, diseased, or weak branches. These branches are prime targets for high winds and can significantly increase the risk of falling. Through strategic trimming, we can reduce the risk these hazards present while promoting healthy growth and maintaining the natural beauty of your trees.
  • Tree Evaluation: Early detection allows us to take preventative measures, such as cabling and bracing, to fortify your trees before a storm hits.
  • Cabling and Bracing: For trees with weak branches or a high canopy, cabling and bracing systems offer additional support. These systems utilize cables and supports to redistribute weight and stabilize the tree canopy, reducing the risk of branch failure under heavy winds.
  • Emergency Response Plan: While prevention is key, unforeseen circumstances can arise. Having a clear emergency response plan in place helps minimize post-storm damage. Embark Services offers 24/7 emergency tree removal services to ensure prompt response and minimize any potential safety hazards caused by fallen trees.

Beyond the Hurricane Season: Proactive Tree Care

A proactive approach to tree care throughout the year is vital for overall hurricane preparedness. Here are some additional tips to consider:

  • Invest in Diverse Tree Species: Planting a variety of trees with varying wind resistance helps create a more resilient landscape. Our arborists can recommend tree species known for their strength and tolerance to high winds.
  • Promote Healthy Soil Conditions: Healthy soil fosters strong root systems, which are crucial for anchoring trees during storms. Regular fertilization and aeration practices can significantly improve soil health.
  • Regular Tree Inspections: Schedule regular inspections by certified arborists throughout the year. This allows for early detection of any potential issues and timely intervention to promote overall tree health.
