Houston, TX, November 10, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Cities across Texas are busy removing dead and dying trees from parks and other government owned properties but Houston tree expert, Louis Flory with Ability Tree Experts (http://www.abilitytrees.com) says residents do not have to lose their trees to disease and pests.
He tells Texas residents to hire arborists today to avoid losing their treasured trees in the future.
“The worse may be coming. Trees are very weak due to the drought and they are vulnerable as a result. Diseases and pests strike when trees are weak so we can expect them to infect these trees in the next weeks and months,” said Flory.
“Hire an arborist today. They will help you save your trees so they stand a better chance,” he added.
City governments around the state have earmarked huge sums of money towards tree removal. Houston City Council is spending $4.5 million while The Woodlands is spending $640k on tree removal.
“Safety First is our approach to the removal of all hazardous trees,” said Joe Turner, Director of the City of Houston Parks and Recreation Department. “As stewards of the city’s greenspace, it is our responsibility to insure that the removal of any city tree is done properly and with the safety of the public in mind.”
Ability Tree Experts’ Flory said residents should not let their guards down due to the coming fall season. “The weather is cooling down, no doubt about it. Soon we will be experiencing even cooler temperatures but diseases and pests will still strike despite that. Unless residents take steps to protect their trees now, they risk losing them in the near future.”
He advised area residents to contact tree specialists like Ability Tree Experts (http://www.abilitytrees.com) for advice and help managing their trees.
“Trained arborists know the best way to handle dead trees or rehabilitate dying ones. They have the experience and can advise area residents on what to do. It is important that they consult with us right now before it is too late. We can help them but they need to call us at 281-441-4179 or by fax at 281-441-9577.”
