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.
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.
Houston is currently enjoying a robust and vibrant economy, with new developments and construction projects starting each week. As a result, many commercial properties are under construction, often with healthy and mature shade trees nearby. Although many property owners now prefer to keep established trees on the property whenever possible, the sad truth is that construction projects can often lead to tree damage or tree death because of inadequate tree protection.
In the last few decades Americans have become increasingly aware of their impact on the environment, resulting in an increase of recycling centers, green construction initiatives and environmentally-friendly products and services. Although Houstonians are able to choose a wide variety of ways to benefit the environment and protect natural resources, one of the most overlooked ways to help our planet is through choosing a landscape and tree service company that strives to protect and preserve our environment.
As Houston continues to enjoy a robust and thriving economy, businesses and commercial real estate developers are quickly purchasing land and constructing new buildings and office space throughout the city. Although Houston's exciting growth is resulting in rapid job creation and a stronger local economy, there is another result of the development and construction that is not so positive, and that is the removal of many of our local trees.
