Mr. Neil Sperry on the importance of hiring qualified arborists.

Mr. Neil Sperry discusses the importance of hiring qualified arborists in the following Dallas Morning News article.

A properly chosen and placed shade tree can be worth thousands of dollars in the resale value of a Texas home. Plus, all the while that it's appreciating in worth, it’s also making your life much more enjoyable. It only stands to reason, then, that you’d protect that investment by hiring only highly qualified professionals to work on your trees.

 

Arborist and Crew Were Courteous and Helpful

"The arborist who came out to my home for the first time was courteous and answered all my questions. The crew man who worked on the tree was also helpful in explaining the process to protect my tree from Oak Wilt. Very pleased with the service."

Trees rejoice at their sight.

Mr. Neil Sperry and his wife visited Arborilogical Services® on a rainy October day.

He wanted a "green" building...

It was pouring down rain last Wednesday when my wife and I paid a visit to Arborilogical Services®, but that was OK. Owner Steve Houser had time to show us around and explain some of the things he and his architect and builder had worked into the facility.

It’s 5,000 square feet of very functional office space with a couple of meeting rooms. The roof faces mostly south, and it’s 80 percent covered with solar panels. Steve said their electric bill is usually just a couple of hundred dollars a month. Pipes plunge 200 feet into the ground to recirculate water that holds a constant 68 degrees. It’s an easy adjustment to boost that up to comfortable room temperatures in the winter, and 68F is a great starting point for cooling in summer.

Tree care after a terrible summer.

Mr. Neil Sperry interviews Mr. Steve Houser for a Fort Worth Star Telegram article.

When the guy's ringtone is of a chain saw revving, he might be an arborist.

I had a chance to visit with Steve Houser, owner of Arborilogical Services®, a few days ago as his crew worked 50 feet up in our trees. Steve is highly respected by his crews, his clients and even his competitors. He's been instrumental in bringing trees to the attention of thousands of local residents. He's an advocate for North Texas trees, and he's good at it.

So, there he was in my landscape. What a golden chance to get tree management tips from one of the top guys in town. He had the time, and I had the tablet. Here are some of his feelings on local trees and how they fared following last summer's brutal weather.

While Serenity High is an official Texas and McKinney I.S.D. public high school, a portion of its costs are covered by conventional funding and tuition, but its small size and specialized nature require additional funding be raised.
