U.S. News & World Report ranked Nashville, Tennessee as the 11th best place to live in the United States. Having deep roots in Nashville and the surrounding area, The Parke Company fully understands and supports this finding (in fact, we think that we could give the number one place, Austin, Texas, a run for its money). However, along with the historic music scene, extensive culture, winning sports teams, booming job market, and the country’s best barbecue, life in Nashville can also mean extreme weather. Hail, snow, thunderstorms, extreme heat, sustained high winds, and even tornadoes sometimes spring up without warning and have historically dealt serious damage to the area.
These freak storms not only wreak havoc on transportation, agriculture, and your Saturday afternoon family cookout, but they can also cause extensive damage to your property’s landscape and trees. High temperatures can dry out your trees and plants, making them more susceptible to splitting and breakage. The weight of heavy snow can snap trees and limbs and crush plants and shrubs. High winds and tornados can uproot trees, tear off branches, and rip up gardens. Hail can flatten or perforate unprotected leafy plants. Thunderstorms can cause extensive flooding and erosion.
But don’t fret. Much of this can be prevented. See how The Parke Company, and our 30 years of landscape and tree emergency preparation and response services, can help you deal with damages caused by a recent storm or prepare for storms to come.
Tree and Landscaping Services – How The Parke Company Can Help Repair Damages Caused by Severe Weather
As the wind begins to howl, rain and hail pelt your windows and roof. You glance outside at the rapidly darkening clouds. In the instances of illumination caused by lightning strikes, you witness with growing despair the scene of slowly increasing devastation that was your beautifully landscaped lawn, gardens, beds, and trees. The wind has knocked down hanging pots, flipped over lawn furniture, torn up plants, and snapped the old pine tree nearly in half. The torrential rainfall has eroded your sloping beds and is pooling in the low areas of your lawn, slowly undermining the root structure of your prized dogwood trees.
Sound like a nightmare? That’s because it is. However, this nightmare is an unfortunate reality for many people in the Nashville area every year. If you are lucky, you have previously consulted The Parke Company, and together we have developed a strategy to best prepare for and mitigate damages to your property.

It doesn’t have to be this way. Nashville natives ourselves, we at The Parke Company know that a severe storm can arise out of nowhere and cause extensive and costly damage to your landscape and trees. You most likely have automotive and home insurance to cover damages caused by storms to your vehicles and house. Why not invest in preventative tree services and landscaping services, from The Parke Company, that will reduce or eliminate damages caused by extreme weather?
Our team of landscape professionals and ISA certified arborists has years of experience preparing trees and landscapes for the wide variety of extreme weather that can impact the Nashville area.
No matter your property, through a consultation and individualized preparation plan, we will help you take the necessary steps to best prepare for the upcoming storm season.
First, we will thoroughly inventory your landscape features and trees. Our team will specifically look for ways to make your property more storm-resistant by storm-proofing your trees and plants, mitigating garden hazards, and reducing potential drainage or erosion problems.
We will then develop an individualized, and prioritized, plan for addressing your specific needs. Your plan will include the various tree services (tree pruning, deadwood removal, weight reduction, cabling, or outright tree removal), plant bed alterations, irrigation services (installation, maintenance, and testing), and preparation strategies (such as interior storage spaces for hanging plant and outdoor furniture) that will have the greatest storm-mitigation impact on your property.
Finally, we will work with this prioritized plan and your budget to prepare your property for storms to come. Having seen it all over the past 30 years, we at The Parke Company stand by our assertion that the best way to reduce the negative impact upon your property caused by extreme weather is to be prepared.
