Preservation Tree, The Consulting Group Assists In Hurricane Harvey Recovery Efforts
January 17, 2018
Preservation's Micah Pace filed this report upon returning from the Rockport-Fulton area in South Texas. We so appreciate the way our professionals step up to the plate to help out with their knowledge, expertise and time.
Over the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday weekend, Preservation Tree, the Consulting Group (PTCG) joined dozens of fellow tree experts from around Texas to assist in continued Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts in the Rockport-Fulton region of South Texas.
Micah Pace reported back:
"The first-of-its-kind project sponsored by The International Society of Arboriculture-Texas Chapter (ISAT) was made possible by the contributions of the following valuable partners: Aransas County, City of Rockport, Town of Fulton, Texas A&M Forest Service, and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension-Aransas County. Tree care professionals and members of the Texas Chapter of the ISA from around the state visited Aransas County to provide free tree help to private residential properties affected by Hurricane Harvey. PTCG staff members, Micah Pace, Director, and Chad Simmons, Certified Arborist, helped by conducting on-the-ground visual tree risk assessments to provide property owners information about how to reduce risk and help preserve trees. These assessments will help reduce the number of trees needlessly removed and provide a way to communicate important recommendations to property owners to help improve the health and safety of their trees. Preservation Tree is so pleased it could participate in the important goal of the overall recovery of the Aransas County urban forest."
