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.
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.
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.
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.
Some of the most important assets on our property are the healthy and vibrant shade trees we enjoy. In our previous blog post, we discussed how trees on residential properties could become unsafe over time, either because of disease, damage, or uneven growth. In part two in our series on unsafe trees, we'll focus on specifically how unsafe trees can threaten people, vehicles, and nearby property.
Residential property owners will often make improvements and upgrades to make their landscape as safe as possible. However, trees on residential properties can sometimes pose a threat to pedestrians, vehicles, and nearby structures. In this two-part blog series, we'll first look at three ways trees can become unsafe over time, and then highlight three ways unsafe trees can pose a threat to residential properties.
Trees are strong, beautiful assets to residential properties, but unfortunately they can be the victim of damage, strong winds or other accidents. Like people, trees can be wounded and suffer diminished health if these wounds are not treated and monitored over time. In today's blog post, we'll discuss the various treatment and repair methods available for trees that have open wounds or have suffered structural damage.
Every year, Houston sees its fair share of stormy and windy weather, either from summer thunderstorms, tropical disturbances, or strong winter winds. After a storm, homeowners are often concerned about the stability and appearance of property, as well as personal safety, when limbs and trees fall due to high winds.
