Now that the warm weather is starting to settle in on Houston, you, your friends and your neighbors will be paying more attention to the great outdoors. We love this time of year, getting to see neighborhoods burst with azaleas, magnolia trees flowering, flower beds bursting with color and of course, the beautiful trees of Houston glowing with bright green leaves. It’s also a great time for the pests and tree diseases that feed and thrive on our growing landscapes.
At Arbor Care Houston, we take the threat of pests and tree diseases seriously so we can help our customers fight the good fight. Our ISA-Certified Arborists are constantly seeking out education programs and collaborating to find the best treatments and techniques in the tree care industry.
