Review Over Tree History & Terms

Can you tell an oak from a maple? Can you recognize the scent of cedar? Our great-grandparents would have answered “of course.”

Today, though, many Americans are detached from the natural world; this alienation permeates some novels.

This post focuses on the bond between humans and trees. I hope readers, when worldbuilding, will remember that most societies connect to the Earth in a complex network of relationships.
In most cultures, trees have played a central role in religion and sometimes are sacred. Perhaps this reverence for trees derives ultimately from our ancestral arboreal life. Although hominids (ancient humans) moved to the ground more than 3.5 million years ago, modern humans still have nightmares of falling, and most societies stay close, physically and psychologically, to trees.
Traditionally, trees have provided food (fruits, nuts, seeds), shelter, shade, ingredients for medicines, and fuel for fires. Trees can be landmarks, shrines, pilgrimage destinations, trail markers, and boundary markers, etc. Large trees serve as meeting places.

Here’s a list of things to be considering:(depending on how your tree looks to be)

  • Tree mulchingMulching refers to the placement of any material on the ground around plants. Mulches can be divided into organic and inorganic materials. Organic mulches break down over time and become part of the soil, inorganic ones do not.
  • Tree diseasefor the most part caused by fungi, bacteria, and viruses, as well as factors of a nonliving nature. They cause large losses to agriculture and forestry, sometimes leading to the destruction of trees over large areas.
  • Tree service – A local or international company who services tree & other related objects. 
  • Tree trimmingRemoving branches & leaves which are not needed. 
  • Tree removal – Which should use an arborist, or (less commonly) arboriculturist, a professional in the practice of arboriculture, which is the cultivation, management, and study of individual trees, shrubs, vines, and other perennial woody plants. Arborists generally focus on the health and safety of individual plants and trees, rather than managing forests (the domains of forestry and silviculture) or harvesting wood.
  • Tree health“Tree health” as a discipline refers to the study of all factors (biotic and abiotic) that affect the vigour and productivity of a tree, as expressed by different symptoms and types of damage. The health of a tree can be expressed qualitatively by describing the symptoms or damage, or quantitatively through assessments of crown condition.
  • Tree injections The most important advancement for the tree care industry is the improvement of trunk injection methods in general, and specifically, two to three years of protection against borers following a single treatment. Trunk implants or trunk injection treatments have been used by a small but growing segment of the tree care industry since the 1970’s when Neely (1973) restored the color of iron-deficient pin oaks, and Kielbaso and Ottman (1976) successfully treated manganese-deficient red maples with trunk implant treatments.

The council tree of the Hollywood (Florida) Seminole Indian Reservation. This oak is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Unless you’ve seen an old-growth forest, it’s hard to imagine the trees our ancestors knew (tall as a ten-story building, or wider than a four-car garage). Old-growth forests contained many habitats and so teemed with life. Trees seemed immortal, with the same trees appearing in stories passed on for generations. No wonder that everywhere, trees awed people.


Reasonable and affordable

Well it’s been said you never know what goes on behind closed doors.this statement is so true when it comes to restaurants you just never know what’s going on with your food in the kitchen. I want to share story with you about what happened to me at a local mall about four days ago.

I took the family out for a wonderful weekend like I always do so we decided to go over to a local mall actually one of the biggest malls here in the local city call Arlington.

This Saturday start off like all others going to go out spend some time together and then maybe get a bite or two to eat catch a movie later on that night.

As they progress after we ate breakfast at the house and headed out we started to notice that the field the rain clouds are gathering up pick up my Ambarella and just didn’t think anything of it and is headed out.

I did the normal routine we stopped got some gas at the local Chevron station picked up my vapor for my smoke and a quick bite to eat and headed out to have a good Saturday with the family.

I don’t know you been to Arlington or not but the mall there is incredibly busy and Saturdays is probably the worst day of the week and every think about going out there. Talk about overloaded to capacity and extremely backed up finding it hard to find a parking space.

This Mall busy that there has to it seems like a police station to station in the parking lot itself yes the detour traffic.

What seem to be an attorney team but we finally found a parking spot within about 1000 pay paces from the front door.

We gather her things and start ahead now and the first thing we notice is that our little one was hungry I made a point that we will go grab something at the food court before we head on out to do some shopping and some R&R in the mall

As we get there you know you got your pizza you Chick-fil-A and a few other little tits and bits Chinese and Japanese and Korean and I don’t know what else you got there sonic and so is a big selection at the end of the day.

I decided to have some Mexican food over at the Mexican then and I grab my plate and headed back over to the seatback I normally would grab me some hot sauce and a Coke and some nachos along with some tacos.

But this time was a little bit different than most the first bite of my taco that I took sounded a little bit more crunchier than normal and tasted funky nasty and gross all at the same time

There was no way that I can eat but I just put into my mouth so I spit it back out and started to inspect the food immediately to come to find out that there was a humongous Roche head that I just spit out my mouth.

I can’t tell you how upset I was that my food had roaches inside of it and that the manager didn’t even know about it. I took it upon myself to go visit the manager of the store and explain to them what the hell was he thinking putting roaches inside my food.

He went on to explain to apologize and to tell me that he would give me more free food and it was probably contaminated with the same roaches they were in my old food. This upset them even worse to the point where I want to strangle the manager and call his corporate office.

I told him that this was not acceptable and that I was probably going to end up pressing charges and not a civil suit against the restaurant if you didn’t take care of it immediately.

We enjoyed the rest of our day somehow someway with that ugly thought I had in the back of my head that oh my God I had a roach in my mouth.

But we got through in the very next day I went back up to visit the manager to see if he had taken care of the problem so another sucker wouldn’t buy into a taco and find out they was full of roaches well.

At that point I realize that the manager was a man of his word and doing good when I showed up I noticed that the pest control company was already there spraying the place now.

They gave me the treatment from head to toes from top to bottom from side to side from wall-to-wall from corner to corner and make sure that every part of that restaurant was completely sanitized by the time that pest-control company left from there. 100% treatment all the way the fryers are cleaned out the fridge is cleaned out the tops are cleaned out the bombs are cleaned out the drawers are cleaned out utensils dishes and everything else that came with the Strong was completely wiped down and sanitize to included seem to be even the manager himself he shaved a look cleaner.

I was so elated and thankful that would be able to eat at my favorite Mexican restaurant to get at the mall knowing that this problem would happen and more importantly wouldn’t happen someone else that would come in unexpectedly and eat the taco thinking that it was just a part of the meet.

I found the pest-control company to be one of the top notch best companies in Fort Worth which is the larger city there in Arlington found that to be professional courteous and 100% great service all the way



Scary moment with tree falling onto car

Well the morning started just like any other woke up got my coffee and went for an early morning jog. I noticed in the distance that the clouds were kind of gathering together and they look like a storm is coming.

Didn’t pay no attention to it you know I live in Texas and storms is just a part of living in this area of the country. So I got my regular 4 miles in like always headed back home to be showered took off to work though that I know that that day would be a data remember for the rest of my life. On the road to work I encountered a traffic jam on 35 it’s an interstate here in Dallas little that I know that moments later I would be fighting for my life.

I look to the right as it started to pour down rain and the winds picked up in such a fashion that they started to knock trees down next to me. As I looked in the distance I saw a funnel cloud would look to be a massive tornado on the freeway. Oh my God A freaking tornado! I’ve never seen one in my life I was completely paralyzed with fear as the adrenaline started to run through my veins. I realize that I was in deep trouble and I need to do something and do something fast. I couldn’t go anywhere I was blocked in by many different cars it was a massive traffic jam. I did with anybody else would do in that situation.

I completely froze and started praying to God because I felt that my last days on moments on this earth were here and at hand. I realize that I need to act fast if something was going to happen or something was going to change to save my life. I ran out of my car and I ran under the underpass holding onto whatever I could find. I held onto a beam of concrete that’s the only thing I could do I took my belt off and wrap it around there around my hands and I pray that that would be enough to hold me in place is a tornado would sleep over me.

Apparently I was not the only one that was in shock that I was involved in the situation there was 12 of the people there were there trying to grab onto the same pole at the same time we look like ants trying  trying to take sugar back into the end. As I looked off in the distance may be about 100 feet from me this massive ball of debris full of all types of metals and screws and pieces of trees and anything you could imagine was swollen around in their exiting golf a couple of cars in front of mine completely destroying them oh God I think those people died.

I held on for dear life as I started to sweat in the a lot to God to save me from this thing and I promise I would never send again ha ha sounds funny now but at the time honestly I was crapping my pants. For some reason I don’t understand what happened was it the tornado took a left turn and completely missed this not hitting the car my car or hidden any of the people that were underneath the bridge. This is the moment where I get down on my knees and I think God that I wasn’t struck by that debris ball that was coming I was for sure that would be cut to pieces by the pieces of plywood and metal they were involved in there and I know for a fact that the actual storm came from the north.

The only thing I wanted to do at that point was get back in my vehicle and drive as fast as I could back to my house to safety to a safe zone to a place that I feel comfort refuge from this massive storm and from this ugly situation it almost took my life.

Was at this point that I gather up the courage to be a will to drive again I was trembling all over like a diabetic in dire need of sugar. I might’ve finally made it back to the house when I did I parked my car in a nice safe spot where I always do underneath the tree. As soon as I get inside I hear a big war outside thunder and lightning and it seems like Armageddon was at my front door and the angels of death were knocking out it with a sledgehammer.

I realize I better take safety now because I I guess the tornado followed me home. I run into the closest closet and I wait there on my hands and knees with a mattress on top of me waiting for this massive storm that I just missed on the freeway but the same storm is now in my neighborhood it seem that there was no end in sight. I lost hope I started crying I started sweating and I started the mumble I couldn’t even say my words right.

I tried my best to remain calm but honestly I stunk up the closet of crap because it feels like I I think I cheated in my pants. As the storm passed I realize that it caused lots of damage right outside my house as I look towards my car of freaking nasty Tree fell completely on top of my vehicle I just bought it just two months ago and oh my God here it was completely damage from the severe storm that just hit. I didn’t hesitate at all I called my insurance agent and they immediately send out a tree service to help out with the damages within minutes they cut the tree down  making me feel so good inside was the manager of this tree service by helping me cope with all the drama I have been through that day I felt like a soldier with post dramatic syndrome from the Gulf War!

When I was sitting down  in my livingroom though that they started off with complete destruction I made it through the day and my vehicle was not badly damage thank God for this tree service they came to my house came to my rescue and completely removed all the limbs from keeping it from completely damaging.

Fine dinning on the roof top

roof top dinning

My wife and family and I enjoyed ourselves on a wonderful vacation to the city of Fort Worth a few weeks back.

I found myself in the mist of wonderful people kind and polite gentleman and beautiful women. We stayed at elegant hotel one that definitely I would recommend to anyone. This was absolutely a long awaited vacation that my family so deserved and needed some rest and Relaxation.

My boys just graduated from college classes and we just decided that this was the best thing for the family to do dispensing time together before obviously my boys are gonna be flying the coop.

This’ll probably be the last vacation that my boys and I will take before the inter-manhood and me being their leader as a father. I come to the conclusion that this was something that we absolutely had to have as a family my wife is a business owner and has multiple projects going on at the same time.

So her life is extremely busy with the do things of the business and projects that are always up-and-coming. We don’t get to spend much time together which is a don’t fall because I really enjoy being a family.

Now I have been to Fort Worth many and many a times it’s a wonderful city with a beautiful call culture and wonderful people  but this time was just a little bit different and I’m gonna explain why we stayed at the Omni Hotel five star to the max wonderful people there and elegant place the rooms were breathtaking and absolutely gorgeous however that was that was not the highlight of our trip. We went to go eat at a hotel skylight restaurant what I mean by that is that it was on the roof top of one of the largest bass buildings in downtown Fort Worth.

Yes it was absolutely phenomenal suit and tie without a doubt very elegant champagne and all but wonderful outstanding the view of downtown was just gorgeous a wonderful sunset with great champagne and wine the world could not be better. I was however overwhelmed with the gorgeous rooftop dining that they had I had no choice but to ask the waiter how did they come up with a concept to put a wonderful dining area on the very top of the rooftop of the hotel.

The waiter went on to The waiter went on to say that the installation was created by roof repair Fort Worth a local roofing company and designer in the metroplex.

I was astonished and I couldn’t wait to call the company in the morning so I can also do the same for our firm back in Chicago. The crafting the elegance and everything on the design was totally breathtaking it was outstanding work I have not seen craftsmanship like that ever before especially on a rooftop and for dining.

I called up roof repair Fort Worth the following day and I get to know the owner Josh and he told me that they actually do Make trips to Chicago and he would be more than willing to go out there and give me an estimate in a bit as long as I pay his airfare backwards and gone.

I came to the conclusion immediately that I had to contract him for my next roofing project I flew him out the very next week that Chicago he gave me a bid in there we go the rest is history. The price was right the quality was there and I was about to have the best rooftop dining area of any of my brothers and sisters or my neighbors in my neighborhood.

The installation went very well everything went according to plan they were professional they were courteous and the new  how to take care of a customer. When the job is finally done I was blown away my wife was two and her friends and neighbors came over to the dining and everyone agreed that roof repair for work did an outstanding job they might as will be called Chicago repair for because that is exactly what they did.

Veggies on the roof

geen roof tops

Well how about this it’s finally here veggies on the rooftop what a great idea.

Yeah I went the other day to downtown Fort Worth and I found out that on the rooftop they had a whole garden. I not just talking a garden but I’m talking about a huge garden. Yeah they had carrots and they had cabbage they had corn they had everything you can imagine was planted in the garment right on the rooftop Jesus Christ.

So I decided to do a story on it so you guys can know that if you had this extra space you know with all the population is growing throughout the world we got to make sure to conserve as much space as possible. So I spoke to the building owner and I went on to say no why would you do this.

And he went on to say well this is this is the deal I believe we need to be givers more than takers. So I have all this extra space on top of all these buildings that I own and I decide it will why not do something with it. So I decided to plant a garden in one garden trying to do Gardens into Gardens turned into three gardens and before you know it I own 60 buildings and every single building I have has a garden rooftop on it it’s a great idea I really enjoy it. Brad went on to say the following well I got together with Arlington roof repair to do all the foundational work on my rooftops. You know you just can’t go out there and start throwing all this heavy dirt on top of your roof without expected to cave-in.

There is a lot of cost is involved in doing Bruce like this but there’s a big payoff at the end of the time whenever you have a harvest. The idea started off with my wife and I one-time be on top of one of the rooftops checking out the roof and we decided to do something with it maybe a gym I don’t know maybe some type of workout but no we decided that if we were to plant the garden he would have the biggest dividends as we would have vegetables for the rest of the year. This was so catchy that our neighbors ended up seeing it and they copied the same idea banded up calling roof warranty repair and they enjoy the idea of making the investment in having something to do in the evenings by watering their bagel garden that they had on top of the rooftops. One neighbor went on to another neighbor and another neighbor went on to another neighbor and before you knew it the whole industry was doing it down our street every single rooftop had a humongous garden on top of it.

Tell you what it makes it look nice and pretty when you stand up on top and you see nothing but green is that of a whole bunch of nasty roofs all the way around you.

Well the story caught on and the local newspaper decided to come out here and do a story along with your blog and center and I’ll tell you what the people are being more green you can say I’m literally the green thumb in my neighborhood! That’s okay with me because I enjoy planting harvesting eating and replanting again the following year and just enjoying myself over and over.

This local business owner went on to say the following well I brought my grandson down from Kingsville Texas and I wanted something to do with him during the summer. He looked bored out of his mind and all I do is work on the buildings that I manage so the green roof has been something that has been so great for building relationships and given our family something to do in the evenings when we got our free time.

Yeah my grandson can’t wait till he gets home at 5 o’clock and we go up to the rooftop to see what is propped open on the plants that day. The peppers the corn the carrots and everything else that we planted the watermelons and melons and tomatoes in the potatoes and everything else it’s included there it’s such a great feeling of fulfillment. If anything else this is help me and my grandson build a great relationship and I know that I’m getting up in years and sooner or later I’ll go want to be with the Lord but I know that I left in him a living legacy he’ll remember me for the rest of his life because of this rooftop gardens I call it the veggies on the rooftop


fire damage

One of the best Roofing services in north Texas

Well the story starts off pretty sad, it’s been 80 years now since our home was built and needless to say my dad was the one that passed down to me. It has great value I really value the home itself because of the memories that I have is a young man growing up inside of it.

The neighborhood is great  is just a great overall community and wonderful city to live in. Well last week about things happen our home burnt down down to the ground to nothing. I can’t tell you how much this breaks my heart how much it makes me ache inside so many memories in our home.

My mom and dad grew up there as a matter fact the whole belong to my grandpa and my grandpa passed it on down to my father back in the 70s. Will my dad got all then you know a little senile I had no choice but to take over the situation for him in the home became mine.

I was elated to have the home and be the new owner because I love the neighborhood I love the The people. So needless to say I was brokenhearted when I smelled smoke last week and my daughter woke me up saying that the house was on fire.

I got up and are rushing wind and I look in our living room is completely golfed with flames from end to end and there was no seating inside.  Most of the damage was done to the roof of the actual house itself a roof that my dad and I spent years installing time and time again replacing shingles and replacing them over and over what we spent time talking about how good life can be. It was at this point that I realized that my home my wonderful place of living was burning down right before my eyes. We ran outside and obviously call the fire department when they got there they put the blaze out pretty quick like and kind to save the rest of the house from being engulfed in flames and for it to be a total loss.

I can’t tell you how much it breaks my heart to see something that’s been in our family legacy for so many years and so much history there luckily a lot of artifacts and family history were saved in a room in the safe were they didn’t get burnt the only damage was created to the roof itself. When the firemen had finished putting out the blaze I was sitting down for the morning look at my home while smoke was going up in the air and I scratch my head wondering what steps do I need to take next to restore this wonderful artifact in my family’s historyI did what any homeowner would do I called up a estimator the insurance they came out they look at the place the very next day just to tell me that there was major damage and thousands and thousands of dollars worth of and go flames and memories.

It was at this point that the roofing agency referred me to a remodeling company and also a roofing company by the name of  roofing Irving construction these guys were nothing short of saviors. And I’m not just talking about saviors when Henry came out here to give me the estimate the first thing you said don’t worry about it bro I guarantee you were going to fix your home and we’re going to get it looking like the original thing in no time at all. I can’t tell you how much I was elated and also to the point of crying because I knew at that point that this wonderful historic home from my parents to me from my grandparents to my parents to me was finally going to be put back to normal and I would have a normal life in there.

Roofing company Irving was just static about getting started with the job the first thing they did was gave the insurance estimate they cut us a check I think the guy it within a couple of days to restore my home back to normal as I started seeing the beams going up as I started seen cracks and crannies in all the debris left over from the fire being cleaned up my heart God filled with joy.

In a matter of weeks late I don’t be restored by home to date me even a better locate you know what I need a new roof I need a brand-new living room and they did just that they restored my home back to normality and the great thing about it all is that they did it within budget and they did it with a reasonable time frame now today it seems like I don’t even have fire damage whatsoever in my home I’m so happy and so elated that  roofing company Irving Texas came to my rescue and restored my home back to normality thank God for companies like this
