Texas is home to many tree types, but few are as popular among local homeowners as crepe myrtles. They offer stunning beauty for many months of the year while also providing valuable shade. While many residential properties feature crepe myrtles, not all receive good care or maintenance. In today's Embark blog post, we look at some of the basic facts homeowners should know about their crepe myrtle trees and the proper way to maintain their health and beauty throughout the year.
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.
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.
Fall weather means the arrival of cooler temperatures, the return of seasonal décor, and the falling of tree leaves all across the city. Although falling leaves can be a nuisance for residential property owners to deal with, the bare spots they leave behind can reveal many significant factors and warning signs about tree health. In today's blog post, we'll discuss the top three things to look for when tree leaves begin falling from the trees on your residential property.
Some of the most important assets of a residential property are the trees, which provide desirable shade and aesthetic value. Unfortunately, issues such as tree damage, drought, tree diseases, and soil issues can lead to the death of these valuable trees. Although no property owner ever wants to experience losing a large and majestic tree, it is far worse to leave a dead tree on a residential property for an extended period of time.
Houston's stable and growing economy has led to a rash of new construction projects and development areas, from large mixed-use office and retail spaces to new home construction. Often this construction occurs near existing homes and businesses. Although noise and traffic are the most common results from nearby construction projects, they can also cause a problem that has lasting and expensive ramifications: damage to your 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.
As cooler weather finally begins to make its way to the Gulf Coast, many residential properties begin to see tree leaves change colors, drop leaves, and slow their growth. This also marks an ideal time to consider tree planting to give young trees their best chance for long-term health and successful growth. In today's blog post, we'll look at three specific reasons why fall is the best time to plant new trees in Texas.
