Huntsville, Alabama, was named for John Hunt, the city’s first settler. He built his home beside “Big Spring,” which is the city’s original water source. The surrounding area became Big Spring Park, which was initially purchased by Leroy Pope for $23 per acre. The “Watercress Capital of the World” is known for its 64 parks, spanning 3,203 acres, according to the City of Huntsville.
Within these areas of pure nature and throughout the surrounding urban forests are a plethora of trees, varying in size, species and condition. Each tree requires regular tree care services, inspections and health evaluations. Locally owned and operated All Star Tree Service uses its 25 years of experience to easily maintain the beauty and well-being of Huntsville trees.
How the Land Was Used
As Huntsville developed, many large areas of land became home to historic sites and buildings. The Huntsville Arsenal and Redstone Plant were built upon 40,000 acres of swamps and cotton fields. In June of 1949, with the war behind them, the Army tried to sell the plant. There were no takers.
The city purchased two acres of land from Leroy Pope for $200. This acquisition became Maple Hill Cemetery, which is the oldest and largest cemetery in Alabama. Spanning almost 100 acres today, there are no plots available for purchase.
Huntsville, AL, cares about its natural lands. In efforts of preservation, the city built all four Madison County court houses on the same site.
The term urban forest refers to trees within the human-inhabited portions of the city. Trees that line the sidewalks, decorate backyards and various vegetative plants contribute to the city’s ecosystem. Urban forests require Huntsville tree pruning, inspection, stump grinding, and, on occasion, tree removal. All Star Tree Service’s certified arborist will give the trees in your yard a thorough check-up. The “tree doctor” will offer recommendations regarding pesticide treatments, ways to prepare for severe weather conditions and ways to improve lawn aesthetics.
It is important to maintain the health of our urban forests. They provide a habitat for local fish and wildlife. Social benefits include shaded areas for picnicking. When these plants are preserved, Huntsville, AL, benefits from cleaner air quality.
The Weeden House Museum and Garden
Owned by the Watercress Capital of the World, the Weeden House was originally purchased by Dr. William Weeden in 1845. Maintained by the Twickenham Historic Preservation District Association as a 19th century house museum, the beautiful lush gardens are a tourist favorite. During the Civil War, Mrs. Weeden and her daughters were forced to vacate their cherished home. Many years later, they returned and brought the garden back to its stunning beauty. Tree service professionals now carry on the Weeden’s traditions.
Tree doctors evaluate the stress level of a tree prior to rendering services. Actions like pruning can increase tree stress. Other factors include infestation, weather conditions and human interactions. Over or under watering, overuse of fertilizer, road salt and exhaust fumes add to the strain on trees. Divesting a tree of critters, avoiding tree roots when mowing the lawn, and routine service will help keep tree stress to a minimum.
