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.
As Houston continues to see additional developments and construction projects break ground, there are a growing number of existing shade trees in jeopardy of injury and tree death because of nearby construction. Thankfully, Houston project managers and property owners can preserve healthy shade trees with Tree Preservation services from LMC, and in the process positively impact their surrounding community. Today's blog post will focus on defining Tree Preservation, and three ways in which it can positively impact communities in the greater Houston area.

Sometimes a commercial property is just missing something... It could be a lack of color, focal points, or a boundary to break up the open space. Possible solutions include the addition of new trees, a landscape garden, or even a water feature.

Today's blog post will focus on several benefits of adding hedges or shrubs to your commercial property.

Many Houston business owners rely on contractors to help their business run smoothly and ensure that their company facilities are in excellent condition. Businesses depend on contractors for HVAC needs, plumbing issues, electrical repairs, and tree and landscape maintenance. However, hiring amateur tree trimmers and day laborers can cause major problems for business owners.
Americans enjoy the largest number of consumer options and service providers than ever before. People have a wide variety of choices in all arenas, whether they are car shopping, buying groceries, shopping at a clothing store, choosing insurance or even looking for service providers. Sometimes the abundance of choices and options can be overwhelming, so it's important to carefully examine all available options before making a decision. One area where Houston consumers have a wide variety of choices is with tree and landscape contractors.
When major projects arise on commercial or municipal properties, property owners and managers rely on outside contractors to submit Request For Proposal (RFP) bids to help them determine the best contractor to complete the task.

In today's blog post, we will look at four major problems that can occur when the lowest bid is the sole determining factor in awarding or granting a tree care or landscape contractor project.
When it comes to tree trimming, property owners might make the assumption that all tree trimmers are the same.
