Winter emergency tree service

It’s getting cold outside in Nashville and soon there will be flurries and even snow! But did you know that Parke’s services don’t end once the snow moves in? That’s right! Our arborists and landscapers work hard all year long, including the winter.  So as the warmer weather moves out of the Middle Tennessee area and the cold air settles in, remember us for your winter landscape needs like emergency tree care services and snow removal. With the holidays rapidly approaching and the daylight hours getting shorter, one of the last things you need to worry about is shoveling snow. Luckily, that’s where we come in. We can complete the chore for you so you can be on your way doing what’s important — spending time with your family and friends.

So what should you know about our snow removal services before you call? Here are a few things to consider:

No hassle
The biggest thing to consider for our snow removal services is how easy it is. There’s really no reason why you should not take advantage of this landscape service. We not only remove the snow from your driveways and sidewalks, but also salt them to keep them safe and walkable. All you need to do is give us a call and we can do the rest. We know you have places to be so let us get to work and you’ll have snow and ice removed in no time.

Great gift idea for elderly
Still looking for the right gift for your grandparents? Call us today to discuss the options of buying snow removal services for them! It’s a great gift option for those who can’t get out and work on their landscape, especially in the winter. This is also a great idea for those who might be more susceptible to falls and shouldn’t be removing snow or salting sidewalks. Give our landscape crew a call today to discuss the options. You’ll definitely win the award for most creative and useful gift of the year.

Book Now
Most people wait until they need the services before they give us a call. However we recommend calling us now to book any snow removal services you might need during the winter months. Calling now ensures that you receive priority for when you need the services. In addition, you receive preferential treatment for emergency tree care services should you need it during a severe winter storm. Though we never anticipate (or want) winter storms, they are still common in the Middle Tennessee area so it’s important to be prepared.

So whether you are too busy or need a gift for someone who can’t shovel snow themselves, consider our snow removal services. And while you’re chatting with us, discuss all the other services our arborists and landscape professionals offer. From tree care, emergency services and all the other landscape services, we have a variety available to suit your needs. And just because it’s getting colder doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be planning for the spring months nor does it mean you might not need our winter services soon. Time flies, Nashvillians, so be prepared! Contact an arborist today for more information.

Three Ways to Prepare During Emergency Preparedness Month

Emergency Tree ServicesIf you didn’t already know, September is Emergency Preparedness Month! This is an important time to evaluate your home and family’s protocol during an emergency and make a plan. Middle Tennessee can often be the center of major thunderstorms, flooding, winter storms and other natural disasters. For this reason alone it’s important to consider what you and your family need to do in an emergency and ensure you have all the necessary tools on hand should you need them.

Thankfully, Nashville has a great planning system in case of a severe storm, but sometimes that’s not the only thing that helps. There’s no better time than now to sit down with your family and discuss what your family plan might be should you need it. Here are three key factors our arborists recommend when planning and preparing for emergency preparedness:

Have Emergency Service Numbers
Our team of tree care experts always recommend having our number on speed dial. Our emergency tree service experts can take care of large, fallen branches and trees. The trees might be blocking roadways or the branches might’ve fallen on a power line. Whatever, the case, make sure you have our number on hand should you experience a tree care emergency. In addition, be sure to have a list of other emergency service numbers such as Nashville’s Electric System, water company, Red Cross and many others. We also recommend writing down these numbers on a sheet of paper and having next to your landline phone or posted on your refrigerator. This way, you have the numbers ready no matter what happens. You never know if you might lose cellular service or run out of battery.

Gather an Emergency Kit for the Home
An emergency kit for your home or business is one of the best ways to stay prepared during a storm. Take a duffel bag or suitcase and compile items you’ll need during a storm. Your emergency kit could include items such as blankets, batteries, flashlights, canned foods and much more. For a full list of items, visit the Red Cross website or the National Weather Service website. And don’t worry! Our arborists emergency tree service crew has an emergency kit full of supplies too!

Put Together Shelter Supplies and an Evacuation Plan
Should the weather get bad enough and you need to evacuate, be sure to have a pack of shelter supplies and an evacuation plan ready. Research where your closest shelter is located beforehand and have a pack of supplies ready so you don’t waste too much time. Map out an evacuation plan with your family in case you are separated during a storm. Don’t forget that your plan should also include our emergency tree services. This way, if branches or trees fall in the roadway, an arborist can come quickly to remove the obstruction allowing you to get safely to a shelter.

Always be prepared! Having an evacuation plan, the appropriate phone numbers (including Parke’s emergency tree service) and kits for the home and shelter are important to ensure safety during a storm. Take the remainder of this month to prepare for an emergency. Want to talk tree care or landscape with us? Call an arborist for more information!

Schedule Services Early for the Fall Season

red and yellow fall leaves

Fall SeasonIt’s after Labor Day and Vanderbilt and Titan football has started. Do you know what that means? It’s fall! As the leaves fall off the trees and the air gets chilly, it’s important to consider what landscape and tree care services you’ll need. Landscape and tree maintenance doesn’t stop just because you’ve put the swimsuit away! Call one of our arborists and discuss your fall and winter needs for your landscape. Remember, the sooner the better! With your name in the books you’ll receive additional perks such as preferential treatment with scheduling and emergency services!

There are all kinds of services available to you during the fall that benefit your trees and the landscape around them. Everything from mulching and cleaning to continued irrigation care. Not sure what services are available or what you might need? Consider these:

Leaf pick-up
Leaf pick-up might be a fun chore, but with school, football and holidays gearing up, who has the time? Leave it up to us! (No pun intended.) We can take care of the leaves as they fall so you don’t have to. The best part? We can get rid of the gathered leaves.  We could even use them for compost or mulch. It’s a great way to recycle, and it ensures your lawn looks pristine all season long.  

It’s almost holiday season! Now that Labor Day is over, we’ve got Halloween, Thanksgiving and even Christmas right around the corner.

It’s a fun and creative way to brighten up the outside of your home and get your family and friends in the holiday spirit.

Tree transplanting
Did you know the best time to transplant a tree is in the fall? Transplanting a tree is recommended when it’s not very hot and before the ground freezes. If you have trees that you want to move, call an arborist to discuss your options. The same goes for planting new trees! It is not too late in the season to spruce up your landscape with a new oak tree. And hey, you can even buy it online! We can’t make it much more easier than that, can we?

Planting flower bulbs
Love daffodils? Fall is a great time to plant bulbs for next spring! Planting them now ensures they bloom with the first signs of spring next year: a welcomed sight after months of snow. In addition, have our landscape team take a look at your flower beds, and clean up any dead flowers or plants from earlier in the summer. And we won’t forget to weed in the fall. If you have a rain garden, our crew can spruce it up and get it fall-ready too!

It might be hot outside still, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t prepare for the colder months. Our services include tree care, landscape, irrigation and so much more. Our team of experts will work to make sure your landscape and trees always look beautiful. Give us a call today so you’re ready for the fall.

Benefits to Buying Larger Maintenance Packages


parke-company-emergency-services-tree-landscape-irrigation-maintenance-blog-Benefits-to-Buying-Larger-Maintenance-Packages-tree-workMany of our customers ask us how they can get more bang for their buck when they schedule tree care or landscape services. And we understand the importance of a good deal! Our arborists and landscape crew work hard to ensure that we stay within our customers’ budgets all the while making sure landscapes look phenomenal and their trees are well-taken care of. With that said, one of our biggest recommendations for customers who are looking to score deals is to consider becoming one of Parke’s maintenance customers. This ensures you’ll save more money in the long run with a larger package of services that is consistently maintained. Though it might be somewhat of an investment on the front end, it will surely reward you long-term.

Here are a few great reasons why you should consider a Parke maintenance package:

Fewer visits
Though you might enjoy having us stop by to care for your landscape, we understand that you’re a busy person. Signing up for the maintenance package requires fewer visits because we will be able to work within your schedule and complete projects efficiently. Obviously, things come up and some issues may require more frequent services, but becoming a Parke maintenance customer allows us to evaluate and plan as best as possible to make sure we’re serving you in the best ways.

Easy payment
Like we’ve already said, larger packages actually save you money in the long run, but we understand that many may not have the payment all ready up-front (especially with Metro kids going back to school soon)! We offer auto payment plans and credit card payments online, making it much easier to fit in your monthly budget. The Parke Company also offers discounts on the overall cost if it can be paid upfront.

No overlap
One of the biggest benefits to purchasing comprehensive tree care or landscape packages is avoiding overlap. This happens when choosing to complete smaller projects over a longer period of time. You end up receiving tree care or landscape services that you don’t necessarily need at the time. And while it might seem appealing to try to save some money, it can end up being a waste.

Our team of arborists and landscape crew know that customer satisfaction is key. Have questions? We are always available to answer any questions you might have about your trees, branches, landscape and even upcoming fall decorations. We want to fit in your schedule and your budget while doing our jobs effectively and efficiently. It’s the best way to make sure you’re happy, and ensure that your trees and landscape prosper.

We might be getting closer to the fall, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get started with any landscape or tree care services. Already one of our clients? Call an arborist today to see how you might be able to consolidate your services and become one of the many Parke maintenance customers. We’ve got all your tree care or landscape services you’ll need to show off your yard in the coming year. From irrigation systems to emergency tree services, we’ve got you covered.
