The State of Texas had suffered a historic drought, causing an estimated 15,000 trees within the city parks and right of ways (ROW) to die. The dead trees had become brittle and yellowed with large limbs breaking and falling, potentially endangering the public and posing a threat of catching fire by manmade or natural means.
 

TLC was tasked to provide technically trained staff to assist SAIC in monitoring and managing removal of these trees. This project included managing, documenting, and surveying hazardous drought-killed dead trees within the city’s 350 parks and over 200 esplanades and green spaces. TLC also assisted in surveying hazardous dead trees in the city’s 16,000 miles of ROW center.
