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.

Tree Trimming And Pruning Myths

tree and shrub removal service

If you are planning on removing stumps in your land and you want to have a rough estimate of the price you will pay, know that stump removal cost depends on the type of service you want to hire. It is also dependent on the obstacles and difficulties faced during the removing process. The kind of equipment used for the service will also be factored into the entire price you pay. Other additional concerns include the number of branches, the width and height of the trees or stumps. And seeking for the services of a registered professional will give anyone the impression that the charges will be quite expensive.

Stump removal cost will depend on the size of the stumps and also the type of soil fund in the area. For a pruning service, the factors to consider include the age of the tree, the species, how frequent it will be carried out and the location of the stumps. Generally, cutting down mature and large trees will be in the range of $400 to $1000 per tree depending on the size and specie of the tree. The larger trees are usually around 70 to 100 feet. Some of these trees include elms, American Ash, Red Oak, Walnuts, Black Locust and ancient maples. But the smaller trees which are measuring about 25 feet are usually less expensive and range from $100 to $400. Some medium size trees like Black Gum and Crabapple can be charged around $300 to $800. Trees that are old and dried out are always less expensive to cut down because not much work is needed to chop them down.

However, there are extra charges that will be made if you want some additional services. For trunk hauling service, you will be expected to pay around $300. If you want to grind the stumps, fees for smaller stumps are around $70 while you will be paying close to $250 for larger stumps. There is an hourly charge for branch chipping. Usually, you are likely going to pay from $60 to $140 an hour.

Calling a professional to remove your stumps could be very expensive but there are some ways to reduce the stump removal cost. Ensure that you ask around for professionals and get several price quotes from them. One of the key ways to reduce the overall price you pay is to do regular trimming. Remember that the price you pay for the service depends so much on the size of the tree, so do not allow the tree to grow to a size that will require you to call professionals to do it for you.

Tree Trimming - Cherry Trees

If you have a large tree at home that's starting to be really bothersome in your yard that you want to get rid of, you are in need of a good tree removal service. There are lots of tree service companies nowadays that you can choose from but you need to know that not all of them have the ability to do the job well.

Before you decide to get a tree removal service, cost is one of the most important things that you need to take into consideration. Let's determine how much money you need to set aside for your budget if you want to get a tree service.

First, you need to take a look at the situation that you have. Determine how many trees you need or want to get removed; where they're situated; and if there's nothing surrounding them. If your trees are located at the middle of your yard and there's no structure located near them, the cost of the service that you're going to get will surely be a lot cheaper as compared to if your trees are located near power lines.

8. Amount of manpower needed

Things That You Need To Look Into When You Hire A Tree Service Company

1. Look for at least 2 to 5 companies in your area. Make sure that they're both licensed and certified in your state.

2. Take a look at reviews online and read the comments of other people on how well they do their services.

3. The prices of tree services vary from one company to another. Take note that it doesn't mean that if a certain company offers cheap services, it's already a good choice to go for. Get a reputable company that's going to give you your money's worth.
