We’ve Partnered with the Texas Discovery Gardens to Preserve the Garden’s Beloved Trees
June 20, 2016
Trees are an integral part of any garden, especially one in a dense urban area. With drought persistent in Texas, millions of trees have been lost throughout the state. Preserving urban trees is more important than ever, an effort that is a primary mission of all of us here at Preservation Tree Services.
Helping to improve trees at a beloved public garden.
If you haven't yet been to the Texas Discovery Gardens (TDG), we hope you’ll visit them soon! They are an oasis within the Fair Park grounds featuring native and adapted plants and the amazing Rosine Smith Sammons Butterfly House and Insectarium. Guest and employee safety are a priority. Trees that are not inspected regularly and properly pruned can become serious safety hazards. Stressed trees can also damage buildings and structures such as the garden’s wonderful greenhouse and butterfly house.
Because TDG is only partly funded by the City of Dallas Recreation Department, we have offered to inspect and prune their trees as part of a community partnership effort. Over the next year we will not only donate much needed detailed pruning, natural tree health care and chipping services throughout the garden, but also provide educational programs to visitors through the seasons presented by our certified arborists. We’ll let you know as programs are scheduled. We’ll also be contributing a monthly tree tip to the TDG monthly newsletter. Sign up for their E-newsletter at www.texasdiscoverygardens.org.
We’re excited about the new partnership and growing commitment to such a wonderful Dallas treasure. We encourage everyone to visit the gardens often!
