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.
Trees are an important investment and beautiful addition to any residential or commercial property. Because of their value, it is important to protect their health from a young age, especially with careful and strategic tree pruning. However, many young trees can be severely over pruned, leading to a lifetime of diminished and unstable growth. In today's blog post, we'll look at how best to prune young trees in order to avoid over pruning and instead promote long-term health, beauty and stability.
When we are sick or feeling under the weather, we may have a variety of symptoms such as fever, chills, poor appetite, coughing or fatigue. Much in the same way our bodies can show symptoms of an illness or virus, our tress can also show symptoms of tree diseases or the impact of invasive insects. However, many property owners might not realize that their tree is showing symptoms of an underlying problem, which can lead to tree damage or tree death if not promptly identified and treated.
With fall weather finally making its way to Houston, many property owners are starting to see leaves fall from trees and tree growth slowing down. This cooler weather marks the ideal time to have trees pruned back, but some property owners and amateur tree crews go overboard with their tree pruning. In today's blog post, we'll look at the top three dangers that result from excessively pruning trees.
With more icy weather hitting the Houston area recently, many homes and businesses saw a large number of broken branches, fallen limbs and toppled trees throughout the city. While much of the debris has been removed for safety reasons, there are still many trees throughout the greater Houston area with large dangling limbs or broken branches still attached to trees.
Mature trees are almost always considered an asset on residential and commercial properties, especially in Houston where shade is beneficial in reducing energy and cooling costs. Trees provide beauty, enhance our landscapes, and help with rainwater absorption to reduce flooding. Although trees often benefit the Houston area, there are a few instances where it becomes necessary to remove trees to preserve the long-term health and value of our property.
For some people, tree care simply means remembering to water the trees and occasionally get mulch to help it grow. However, good tree maintenance requires diligence and proactive steps to ensure trees remain healthy and strong. One way commercial and residential property owners can help protect and extend the life of their trees is to ensure all tree diseases and suspicious tree growths are immediately analyzed and treated.
In our busy society, people are always looking for new ways to save time or make things more efficient, whether at home, in the workplace or in their personal lives. This is also true of many residential homeowners and commercial property managers that allow basic landscapers to also handle their tree trimming projects for the sole purpose of saving time.
