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.
No matter how much we prepare and protect our home or business during hurricane season, there will always be areas of our property that remain vulnerable to damages from hurricane-force winds and heavy rainfall. For example, our trees can be severely damaged or completely uprooted because of hurricane-force winds and torrential rainfall. Tree damage can have a significant financial impact to property owners, through the loss of valuable shade, decreased property value, increased utility bills, and even damages to nearby properties and structures.
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 and business owners 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 or commercial 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 commercial and 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.
Utility services reach residential and commercial properties through lines either above ground or planted underground. Although these services are stable and reliable, trees can interfere with utility services and cause problems for both tree health and utility service providers. In today's blog post, we'll look at how residential and commercial property owners can avoid problems between their trees and nearby utility lines.
Houston continues to be one of the top cities in the U.S. for new construction projects and development. Although new retail centers, office complexes, and 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.
Tree care is important to most residential and commercial property owners, since trees are beautiful and valuable assets to a property. However, a growing number of property owners are also concerned with protecting the environment. If you're a residential or commercial property owner, you need to consider the following: Is your tree care company helping or hurting the environment? In today's blog post, we'll look at how tree care companies can help protect the environment while also providing efficient and safe tree care.
