On any given day in the greater Houston area, there are hundreds of amateur, mom and pop tree crews offering cut-rate services for tree trimming and tree removal. They promise quick tree trimming for a low cost, but accepting their offer often comes at a high price for commercial property owners.
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. Unfortunately, a significant percentage of property managers and owners simply choose the lowest priced bid, often with disastrous results. 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.
Texans have long been concerned with keeping Texas roadways clear and safe for drivers. Nearly 30 years ago, the Texas Department of Transportation began a statewide campaign with the slogan, "Don't Mess with Texas" to reduce roadside littering. Although littering can be dangerous to drivers and harmful to our environment, there are also other threats to Houston drivers and roadways, such as overgrown roadside vegetation.
Owning commercial property comes with a variety of risks and rewards. As a result, commercial property owners are often looking for ways to protect their investment and ensure that their commercial property stays beautiful and valuable to minimize risk. Commercial Landscaping Management through LMC is a smart investment in the immediate and long-term future for commercial property owners.
Property owners take many precautions to keep their homes and businesses safe, such as installing alarm systems, purchasing fire extinguishers, and developing safety strategies in case of emergencies. However, property owners can increase the security of themselves and their property by having professional landscaping and tree care maintenance on a regular basis. A professional tree and landscape service company will ensure that your lawn, trees and garden remain beautiful and in optimal health.
Tree removal from a commercial property can have a major impact on the aesthetic, environmental and economic value of the land. Whether the tree removal is by choice, or due to natural causes, it can leave a void in the landscape that reduces overall appeal and transforms the future of the property. Rather than leave an unattractive, empty space on the property, owners can makeover their commercial property after a tree removal to protect financial values as well as improving the look and health of the property.
Because of our diverse economy, Houston is home to a large number of businesses in the food, oil, gas and chemical industries. These properties require a tremendous amount of worksite safety procedures to protect employees as well as nearby property, equipment and inventory. However, it is just as important to secure the exterior areas of a property through proper landscape and tree care maintenance. Proactive Vegetation Management can further protects employees, company structures, and nearby wildlife.
