Kingwood, TX, August 06, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Houston is experiencing one of the worst heat waves and droughts in decades and this is the right time for homeowners to engage the services of professional Arborists to protect their investment in trees and landscapes.
Texas is one of the worst hit states, along with Louisiana and Oklahoma, and the state is experiencing “exceptional” or extreme drought. This could have adverse consequences on trees and landscapes throughout the state.
Without engaging the services of tree experts, homeowners risk losing their trees and landscape to the heat and drought, according to Louis Flory, owner of Ability Tree Experts.
“Texas and other southern states are going through severe heat and drought right now and homeowners need to move immediately to protect their trees and landscapes. It is important that homeowners have an expert take a look at the trees to ensure they don’t wither due to the heat and drought,” Mr. Flory said.
“More than 90 percent of the state is affected so no homeowner is spared. Having beautiful trees and landscaping enhances the beauty of your property and adds to its value. It is not too late to do something about your trees. Using professional-grade tree service solutions, your landscaping and trees can flourish in less than ideal conditions,” he added.
He said a professional arborist would know how to treat stressed trees due to the heat and drought, control tree diseases and pests like aphids, canker, elm leaf beetle, fire blight, oozing sap, pine bark beetle, sooty mold, oak anthracnose, and leaf burn and scorch.
“A professional will also know when and how to prune trees to promote growth and help the trees weather any storms that may head our way. Pruning your trees, for example, not only manicures the tree, it enhances the beauty of the tree and your property. On top of all that, it makes your trees storm and stress resistant,” he said.
Mr. Flory said that as the temperature hits the 100-degree mark for extended periods, homeowners will witness some dramatic impact on their trees.
“We will see stress build up in these trees and this will contribute to the weakness of the trees. As they become weaker, you will see an increase in disease and pest infestation. Watering your grass at intervals is good but water alone is not enough. The weather is so dry at the moment that when you water your lawn, the grass aggressively absorbs the water leaving your trees with almost nothing so you need a professional to come in and help control the situation.”
“If you believe your trees are experiencing heat and drought related stress, notify a tree expert immediately. They can help save your trees and landscape but not if you wait too long,” cautioned the Houston tree expert.
