This spring, the greater Houston area and surrounding cities have witnessed record-setting rainfall and historic flood levels, causing substantial damage to both commercial and residential properties. Although floodwaters will eventually subside over time, the damage they cause to property health can be significant and costly, in addition to repairs and renovations to damaged homes and businesses. In today's blog post, we'll examine exactly how floodwaters impact property health, and why property owners with flooded land should be concerned.
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 and commercial 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 your residential or commercial property trees.
Some of the most important assets of a residential or commercial 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 or commercial property for an extended period of time.
With the arrival of spring several weeks ago, many Houston property owners have begun to see increased growth in lawns, gardens, and trees. Unfortunately for some Houston homeowners and commercial property owners, spring may have revealed a lack of growth, causing concern for these owners. There are several causes for why a tree might not be growing new leaves or branches, which we will discuss in today's blog post. Hopefully, if your tree is experiencing little to no spring time growth, you can get your tree the help it needs to recover and begin growing again.
From afar, a residential or commercial property might look like the pinnacle of health and beauty because of regular maintenance and beautiful landscaping. However, there may be hidden dangers threatening the health and beauty of a property. No matter how much time and energy we have invested in the health and beauty of our lawn and trees, the reality is that invasive insects and diseases can attack them at any time.
Throughout Houston, construction projects of all shapes and sizes are currently underway, whether it's new construction, renovations, or even demolition of existing structures. Many of these constructions projects include keeping existing large trees on the property to enhance shade and beauty. Builders and construction project managers have to account for electrical, utility, traffic and building safety needs, but often neglect to properly protect the mature trees on the property.
