With hurricane season being the annual weather wild card, which we never know until a week or two out if it is a trump to be played from year to year, it is a Houston-area necessity to look after our trees and to make sure that they have the best chance to endure a category 4 or 5 hurricane, should one hit. Like Southeast Texas Trees, LLC, the tree service Houston area expert is always going to have a tree arborist whose primary job is to evaluate trees for their health, and identify any hazards they may pose.

We are admonished all the time about the need to plant trees, due to urban development. In some cities as many as 4 trees die or are removed for every tree that is planted. According to the houstontx.gov website, the Houston-Galveston-Brazoria Consolidated Metropolitan Statistical Area (Houston CMSA) which consists of eight counties (Brazoria, Chambers, Fort Bend, Galveston, Harris, Liberty, Montgomery and Waller) is a network of urban sprawl that is 8,778 square miles, an area larger than the entire state of New Jersey. All this development has meant quite a bit of deforestation of the Piney Woods region of Southeast Texas, and anything we can do to raise the ratio of Texas native trees planted for Texas native trees cut down is ...
