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.
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.
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.
Mature trees offer residential property owners a wide range of important benefits, but trees can also become hazardous over time if not properly maintained. Unfortunately, too many property owners fail to get hazardous trees removed in time to prevent damages or injuries.
Owning a tree comes with a myriad of benefits and long-term advantages, such as much-needed shade, beauty, privacy, cleaner air, and reduced cooling and energy costs. However, not all trees grow up to be beautiful and safe additions to a property. Unfortunately, some trees grow in such a way that nearby buildings, structures, and even people are at risk of damage or injury. In today's blog post, we'll look at three key tree dangers that residential property owners should look for in order to avoid potential damages, injuries, or major disasters.
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.
In 1918, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) was created to develop a system of norms and conformity assessments for businesses to follow with the purpose of strengthening American industries. These voluntary industry standards help assure the safety and health of businesses by protecting employees and consumers, and ensuring workplace safety and environmental protection. These standards impact all areas of American industry, such as manufacturing, food production, energy distribution and even tree care.
