Last night, Gov. Sisolak ordered a 30 day closure of all nonessential businesses throughout Nevada in an effort to combat the rapid transmission of the coronavirus or “COVID19” in our state. Businesses considered as “essential services” are exempt from the order.

Southern Nevada is known for its ferociously windy days. The National Weather Service frequently issues wind advisories in the Greater Las Vegas area. Sustained winds of 30-45 mph with wind gusts of 70 mph or higher are not uncommon, especially when associated with a severe weather event. So fallen trees after such an event is almost to be expected.
Emergency tree services can be expensive. However, you can save money if you can determine whether or not your fallen tree requires prompt attention. Clearly, it’s always best to err on the side of caution. If your fallen tree presents a safety hazard to you or your home, or has fallen on vehicles or is blocking traffic, you’ll need to seek emergency services. Otherwise, if urgency is not a factor, branch or tree removal services can be regularly scheduled (not during extracurricular or overtime hours); avoiding costly emergency service rates.
The best way to know for certain is to call a tree care professional to assess whether your situation is critical and requires immediate attention or if it can be scheduled in the normal course of business, saving you money.
Meet Mike Cooper, Certified Arborist, past Trailblazer of the Year Award winner and current President of the Southern Nevada Arborist Group, or more affectionately known as “SNAG”. “Coop” as he’s known by his industry colleagues, is one of the most knowledgeable arborists in the Las Vegas area; which makes him a perfect choice as President of this prestigious group.
But what is “SNAG” you ask? It is a non-profit organization that brings together arborists, other tree care professionals and dedicated tree enthusiasts on a regular basis. Their mission is to provide improved tree care and promote the appreciation of trees at our homes, communities, businesses and around Southern Nevada. We appreciate Mike Cooper’s expertise, knowledge and dedication to his craft. We feel especially honored to have him as a part of the First Choice Tree Service Team!

As Southern Nevadans, we must come to the realization as desert dwellers, we live in an arid climate and that we are prone to years of long droughts. All you have to do is look to the bathtub ring around Lake Mead to see the toll years of drought has taken on our desert landscape. Although we exceeded our annual average rainfall total in 2019, we are already tracking behind this year for the same time last year at just .27 inches of rain so far for 2020.
The Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) encourages residents of Greater Las Vegas and beyond to be conscientious when it comes to water conservation. Although lush green lawns can be beautiful, they are not sensible or practical for our dry climate. The SNWA offers money savings incentives to convert to water smart landscaping. Their rebate program has already helped to upgrade more than 193 million square feet to water-efficient landscaping, saving billions of gallons of water. You’ll also see a significant savings on your monthly water bill too. There’s no better time to convert to water smart landscaping! Call us to schedule an appointment with our Landscape Department to help you create a beautiful, desert friendly design just for you!
