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.
Tens of thousands of trees are found throughout the greater Houston area, although some are in better health than others. Inadequate watering, poor soil conditions, or damages from nearby construction or severe weather have led to problems for some of these trees. However, many others are impacted at the very beginning of their life cycle due to improper tree planting.
Hurricane season is rapidly approaching the Gulf Coast region, and with this comes the threat of dangerous hurricanes and tropical storms. These powerful storms can lead to torrential rains, coastal flooding, and high winds that are capable of destroying trees, cars, homes, and businesses. Although homeowners take precautions to board up windows and secure doorways in the event of an approaching storm, many people disregard taking proactive steps with their trees.
On any residential property, trees are some of the most valuable assets for property owners. Not only can they provide ample shade and privacy, but they also add beauty, tranquility, and curb appeal. Unfortunately, Houston's continued population and business growth have led to an increase in construction and renovation projects, which can be a direct threat to the health of otherwise stable trees. Today's blog post will look at four ways residential construction projects can cause significant, and even irreparable damage to healthy trees.
Trees that grow in forests and other wooded areas don't require the use of fertilizers and other supplements because of their nutrient-rich soil. Over time, falling leaves and tree debris decompose naturally and create a healthy, vibrant soil environment that allows trees and tree roots thrive.
Houston continues to be one of the top cities in the U.S. for new construction projects and development. Although new residential communities are wonderful additions to the greater Houston area, the reality is that many healthy shade trees can be threatened because of damage to the tree roots during the construction process. In today's blog post, we'll look at four types of construction projects that can threaten or damage tree roots, and how choosing the right tree care company can help protect trees during construction.
When we need medical advice, we could consult a friend, neighbor, relative, or website, but the best and safest course of action is to seek out a trained and licensed doctor or specialist that can give proper medical advice and treatment. The same is true for trees and their care. While we could handle tree care on our own, or ask a friend, neighbor or relative for advice, the best course of action is to always have a Certified Arborist inspect and treat our trees.
Trees are an integral part of Houston, especially those on residential properties that add beauty and value to the community. However, these property assets can be threatened by a number of causes, leading to major damages, added expenses for property owners, and the possible loss of the tree. In today's blog post, we'll look at the most common threats to tree health and how trees can be protected.
When properly maintained, trees can grow and thrive for decades on residential lots. Unfortunately, trees may need to be removed from a property due to causes such as damage, diseases, drought, or other severe conditions. However, tree removal is not as simple as cutting down the tree as it stands. Tree removal is an extremely dangerous process that involves planning, proper equipment, professionally trained tree crews, and the highest levels of tree care safety and OSHA compliance.
