As cooler weather finally begins to make its way to the Gulf Coast, many residential and commercial properties begin to see tree leaves change colors, drop leaves, and slow their growth. This also marks an ideal time to consider tree planting to give young trees their best chance for long-term health and successful growth. In today's blog post, we'll look at three specific reasons why fall is the best time to plant new trees in Texas.
Trees are an integral part of Houston, whether they grow on commercial lots or residential properties. 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.
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.
When it comes to hiring contractors or service providers, they can either be proactive in their work, or they can be reactive. Reactive contractors will typically only repair or maintain specific areas and will not look beyond the immediate issue. On the other hand, proactive contractors and service providers will often look at the entire situation and offer in-depth recommendations and analysis for long-term care and function. This is especially true in the area of tree care and tree maintenance.
In our previous blog post, we looked at three ways to prepare residential and commercial lawns for springtime growth. However, it's important to note that trees should never be overlooked when it comes to springtime preparation. Trees need just as much care and maintenance as lawns and gardens, especially if they are exotic, large, or valuable trees. In today's blog post, we'll highlight three specific ways trees should be prepared for spring growth to ensure optimal health and beauty.
Although trees are typically considered an asset on commercial or residential properties, a number of factors can transform these assets into liabilities for property owners. Property owners that leave hazardous or sick trees on their property for too long take a risk of suffering property damages, personal injuries and high liability costs down the road. It's important for property owners to be aware of tree issues so they can make informed decisions and protect their property investment.
When fall weather arrives in Houston, property owners will start to see many leaves start to drop from deciduous trees and plant growth slow significantly. Despite the slowdown in tree and plant growth, fall is actually the ideal time to have trees planted on residential and commercial properties. In today's blog post, we'll look at three reasons why property owners should consider having trees planted on their property now during our tranquil fall weather.
Commercial retail and industrial sites benefit from a wide variety of tree care and landscaping services, including lawn maintenance, tree trimming, tree planting, and irrigation installation and maintenance. Another kind of landscape service that offers tremendous benefits to commercial sites is vegetation management services. Unfortunately, many commercial property owners are unaware of the benefits of regular vegetation management, and how they can positively impact their commercial site.
In Houston, our warm climate and longer growing season means commercial properties need much more landscape and tree care maintenance throughout the year. Unfortunately for some business owners, these landscape maintenance costs can have a significant impact on their annual budget. However, there are four ways that business owners can improve their commercial landscape budget without sacrificing their property's beauty, health and value.
Trees add tremendous value, beauty and environmental benefits to residential and commercial properties. For these reasons, many property owners wish to add trees to their property, but this is not a decision to enter into lightly. Choosing the right tree for your property makes all the difference when it comes to future tree health and longevity. Choosing the wrong tree for your property can lead to stunted tree growth, lack of shade, increased tree maintenance, and even tree death.
