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 Maintenance

Regular pruning helps to improve the growth of a developing tree and it also corrects the shape of mature ones. Every cut that we make to a tree has a lasting effect, which can be good or bad. This is why a professional maintenance plan for your trees is a wise investment.

Top Tree Trimming Services For Your Home

Although it may seem that spring and summer are the seasons when a lot of attention is paid to landscaping, winter can be quite beneficial to your landscaping goals as well. Harsh winter conditions may make for potentially unpleasant conditions in which to work, but the benefits from winter pruning are indeed noted.

Perhaps the most notable benefit of winter pruning is that trees are dormant during this time. Dormancy is a period in which there is no active growth of a plant in response to adverse conditions. Regarding trees, this is a means by which to survive the frequently adverse conditions brought on by winter, including snow or ice, frigid temperatures, and decreased precipitation. When a tree is pruned during the dormant season, the pruned areas tend to recover before new branch and leaf growth occurs in the spring. There is also less chance that the tree will wilt due to an excessive loss of water. This is because less water is needed and, therefore, lost when a tree is dormant.

The effects of winter pruning are frequently and especially visible when spring arrives. This is because pruning during the winter months fosters more vibrant springtime blooms from flowering trees, as well as more numerous and healthier fruits from fruit-bearing trees. Providing care to your trees during the winter can reap great benefits by springtime. An Austin tree trimming specialist can help you determine how best to prune your trees so that great results are achieved.

Another benefit of winter pruning is that by the time winter arrives, the tree has already lost its foliage. Without the leaves impeding view, determining which branches to prune becomes an easier process. When the crown of the tree is exposed, one can more easily determine which branches to remove or shorten. If present, dead branches can be more readily identified as such and removed from the tree. Of course, the likelihood of personal or property damage is lessened when dead branches are removed from a tree. Additionally, if proper care of pruning tools and equipment is taken, diseased branches can also be identified and removed. The chances of spreading the disease to other viable trees are decreased when pruning occurs during the winter months. Consult an Austin tree removal professional to help determine whether or not specific branches may need to be removed for the overall benefit of a tree.

There are considerable benefits to pruning your landscaping trees during the winter. With a little careful forethought and attention, there may be some spectacular results from all of your efforts when spring rolls around!

Tree Removal - A Grueling But Necessary Task

price tree service

Despite your vigilance, the tell-tale signs are there: your tree is filled with dead limbs, hasn't developed buds despite the fact that it's late spring and looks a bit, well, dead. Before you call your local landscaper to tear down the tree, put down the phone and take a closer look.  Is your tree really dead? 

Perform this quick test to determine if your tree is dead or just sick: snap off a small tree branch.  How difficult was it to break the branch?  Did the limb snap right off, or did you have to put effort into it?  Is the inside of the limb dry as dust, or is there still some moisture?  Moisture means life - so if you've determined that your tree isn't dead, it's likely to be diseased.  Get ready to put on your punching gloves, because here's how to fight back against tree disease:

Stop All Extra Maintenance.  While this may seem contrary to your natural instincts, fertilizing and mulching a diseased tree is highly ineffective, and can even be dangerous.  Most tree diseases can be fought against naturally, so give the roots of your tree room to breathe by refraining from fertilizing and mulching.  After all, the point is to let your tree heal - not overwhelm it by encouraging extraordinary growth!

On The Other Hand... When you have a diseased tree on your hands, you will need to give it a little extra TLC than usual.  Water your tree as often as possible, as a diseased tree will have more difficulty retaining moisture than a healthy tree.  Additionally, don't mow around a diseased tree, as you'll put the tree at risk for wounds inflicted by the blades; hand clippers will work equally as well here.

Don't Over prune. Diseased trees will have plenty of dead limbs; however, don't get carried away with your pole pruner, as this will only exacerbate a bad thing. Prune any major dead limbs, but don't cut more than ¼ of the tree's limbs.

Call In The Professionals.  Most trees can fight disease on their own with little assistance from you; however, there's one disease that needs the help of a professional to beat: Dutch Elm Disease.  If you suspect that your tree has been inflicted with Dutch Elm, call a landscaper or arborist right away, as this serious disease can wipe out a whole forest in a matter of months.

Spray for bugs - along with removing dead limbs, its critical that there isn't infestation in the tree.  Make sure the tree is treated for ANY infestation, because infestation will result in death if left untreated.

Tree trimming and pruning - Its important that you remove dead limbs, however you don't want to scalp the tree.  If you have doubt as to your ability to trim it up nicely call in your local tree trimmer for help, the costs are insignificant when compared to the immediate and lasting results.

When it comes to tree disease, it's better to be safe than sorry.  If following these expert tips hasn't helped, don't hesitate to call upon a professional to help you out - the health of your tree will thank you for it!

Tree Trimming Equipment

tree and shrub removal service

Tree pruning and trimming services have been considered synonymous but for the experts who know the real deal, pruning is not the same as trimming. Both terms have different processes and systems. But the system used is different from each service.

When one talks about tree trimming, it is like tree maintenance or tree grooming. Trimming the tree focuses on the outer appearance only. The tree owner is concerned about shaping the tree to make it look nice - take out new growth, trimming off awkward branches and forming the leaves or branches accordingly to style.

Tree pruning, on the other hand, is more of salvaging the health condition of the tree. Pruning is necessary for sick trees. With this system, the specialists have to remove a dead branch or infected tree limbs to save the life of the tree and protect the people around it. This is the main difference between tree pruning and trimming services.

3. Tree pruning and trimming services are best done during the winter season because it is easier to see which branches needs to be pruned. So, the time is now. Experts will not do it when the temperature is at freezing point though. This will make the trees brittle and thus easy to get shattered - can endanger people around it.

These are just some of the tips gathered from professionals. Remember that tree pruning and trimming services are not a do it yourself project. You have to contact the right people to do the work.

Tree Trimming Austin - The Importance of Pruning

Whether you have had trees cut down as part of a landscaping project, because of storm damage or due to a disease, removing the leftover stump is not an easy task. Often, the tree service that cut down your tree does not offer stump removal. Make sure that during your contract negotiations that you ask if their service includes the stump removal to avoid any misunderstandings.

It is possible to rent a stump grinder from an equipment rental company and take care of the stump yourself. But if you are not experienced with this type of job, it is not a good idea. The equipment can be very dangerous if not used properly. This is a job that you should take off your to-do list and hand over to an expert.

Stumps can be unsightly and can make an otherwise well-maintained yard look unkempt. They can also be difficult to mow around and create a hazard. Take the time to ask the appropriate questions when you receive your estimate to make sure that your needs will be met and that you understand what services are covered. To achieve the best results, hire a professional stump removal and tree service that is insured and well-recommended.
