When Is It Time To Remove A Tree?
Sometimes a tree gets to a point where trimming and pruning it are no longer adequate and it no longer fits in with your garden or it becomes necessary to have it removed before it causes untold damage to your property or injures someone. Some of the main causes for tree removal are
- The foliage of the tree has lost its visual appeal due to disease, or bugs destroying its limbs and leaves.
- Limbs, branches and leaves have grown too close to your buildings and are now blocking the sunlight from coming into your premises, and causing moisture build up on the walls and roof due to blocking the sun from them.
- The tree has been battered by a storm and sustained some structural damage. The tree could now cause damage to your property or injure someone with falling branches or it could completely fall over, causing even more serious damage.
- You are wanting to change the landscaped outlook of your garden and the old tree does not fit in with the aesthetics of your new look garden.
- The tree’s roots are starting to pose a threat to your property’s foundation or to the underground pipe work.
Felling The Tree Yourself
Sometime people who have a tree that they want removing attempt to remove the tree themselves or they use unqualified contractors. Tree removal is a complex and potentially dangerous job and should only be carried out by tree surgeons because:
- If the roots are not removed correctly then the tree can grow again.
- Old tree stumps which have not been removed correctly are not just an eyesore they are also potentially dangerous.
- Our tree surgeons know how to use the latest equipment to help them climb and access difficult areas.
- Using the wrong tools or techniques when dismantling a tree can cause untold damages to your property or even severely injure someone.

Tree Trimming - Is Your Tree Diseased?
Ash juniper trees are native to Texas. Many Texans hate these trees though. The male trees produce large amounts of pollen from December into February to fertilize the female flowers. These trees are either male or female. The male trees produce pollen and the females produce berries. The pollen produced by the male trees travels through the air in thick clouds at times. If you live near one your yard and car gets covered with it. A lot of people are allergic to the pollen also and get what is called cedar fever.
Ash juniper is often referred to as cedar but it isn't a cedar tree. It is referred to by many names: Texas cedar, mountain cedar, rock cedar, blueberry juniper, enebro and cedro. Many people call it a cedar because the ash juniper is aromatic like cedar and has the same insect repelling qualities.
Ash junipers can grow in very poor soil and need little water. They can grow in full sun or in the shade. However, they grow very slowly in full sun and tend to branch out a lot near the bottom making them look more like a shrub. They can grow more upright in shady conditions if they are planted amongst other things and are crowded. Austin tree service professionals prune these trees to allow the trunks to grow straight and then they develop a nice crown.
Ash junipers are not stately trees like live oaks but are an interesting complement to them and other trees in a stand.
The ash juniper berries are blue and loved by birds. If you want to attract birds the female ash juniper berries will do this. These berries are popular in Northern Europe and the United States in marinades for meat, mostly pork but are also used in stews and soup. They have a sage like flavor that is both sweet and bitter. The oil is extracted from the trees and used as a disinfectant. Inhaling the oil from steaming juniper foliage clears the sinuses because the oil contains about 70% camphor. Camphor has a distinct odor that most people recognize because it is used in mothballs. Some people burn the foliage to disinfect the air.
The wood is very durable and is used in everything from cabinets to fence posts and in cedar lined closets and cedar chests. In fact, cedar posts have been used on ranches in Texas for many years by cattle ranchers to support miles of barbed wire.
