What Is Stump Grinding?

When a tree is removed from a yard, some people do not want the stump to stand in its place once the tree is gone. That is where stump grinding can come into play.

Instead of leaving the stump in the ground, a stump grinder can get rid of the stump where the tree once stood. This allows the person who owns the property to use this spot once again.

Tree stump grinding will actually produce mulch as well so that the area is usable for landscaping or anything else that one wants to put there.

What Happens After the Stump Is Ground?

Once the blade of the stump grinder grinds the stump and all of the roots, it produces mulch first.

However, it is important to note that the stump grinder will most likely produce more mulch than the ground can hold. You can either let it stay there and eventually, the mulch will settle, or you can choose to spread the mulch around your yard.

Can the Tree Come Back After?

Even after the stump is ground, there is still a possibility that the tree can come back. There could be new shoots and growth from the roots that are left far below ground.

However, although there may be sprouts and some new growth, it will eventually stop growing because the roots use up their energy reserves and cannot keep growing after.

Can I Replant a Tree in the Same Spot?

Once you remove a tree from a spot, it can be tempting to replace that tree with a healthy tree. However, we don’t recommend going this route because an extensive root system could still be underground, which could interfere with the new root system trying to grow.

There could also be disease still present if it was an older diseased tree that was removed before.

Although you could replant, it is not something we recommend doing.

Stump Grinding and Tree Removal

If you had or are thinking about tree removal for your backyard, you may also want to consider stump grinding.

This will open up your backyard so that you can do more in the area where the tree once was.

8 Signs You Have a Dead Tree in Your Yard

There are about 228 billion trees standing tall across the US. It’s only natural that some people will have them in their yards. It’s an awesome way to bring shade to your home and raise your curb appeal.

But sometimes, you’re going to need to contend with a dead tree on your property. Read on to learn some signs that you have a potentially dangerous rotten tree at home.

1. There Are Dead Branches

Dead branches are one of the first signs of a dying tree. They usually mean that your tree is struggling with a disease or pests. In many cases, it just means that the tree is about to begin decaying even more.

A dead branch is liable to fall off the tree, which is especially bad if it’s above your house or cars. If it’s above a sidewalk or outdoor seating area, it can also be potentially dangerous.

You can tell when a branch is dead if it snaps easily, has peeling bark, and never grows any foliage when it’s warm outside.

2. The Tree Is Decaying

Branches aren’t the only part of a tree that will start showing decay after the tree dies. The tree turn can also show damage in the form of abnormally peeling bark, vertical cracks, and broken wood.

Sometimes, this will happen naturally because of diseases. Other times, it happens after a natural disaster. A windstorm or lightning strike can kill a tree fast, so it’s important to be on the lookout for signs of decay after a serious storm.

If you’ve recently noticed issues on your tree trunk, it’s important to get an evaluation of your trees. Experts will identify potential issues, recommend next steps, and come up with preventative care plans for still-living trees. You’ll move towards getting rid of decaying or rotten ones so you can plant new buds.

3. You Have a Hollow Dead Tree

Yes, hollow trees are interesting and photogenic. But they also are signs that your tree has low structural integrity. The internal decay and risks that it presents aren’t worth the risk, even for a really cool photo op.

Usually, you’ll notice that a tree is hollowed out because an animal starts living inside it. If you see a squirrel head poking out of your tree trunk, it’s probably hollowed out.

But if you suspect that you have a hollow tree and see no signs, you can also tap it with a rubber mallet. If it makes a hollow thud sound, you probably need to call in an expert.

4. The Tree Isn’t Standing Straight

Your tree’s foundational integrity is also probably compromised if it’s falling at an angle. It’s important to note that some trees were grown at angles on purpose for various reasons. You’ll know if this is the case by your house if the tree always has looked tilted.

In the vast majority of cases, trees are meant to stand straight and tall. If it’s leaning over (and never has been before), the roots are probably damaged. Dead roots mean a dying tree since it’ll no longer be able to absorb water and soil nutrients.

5. Shedding Bark and Sticks

When a tree hollows out or starts leaning, you’ll also usually start to see a lot of bark and sticks on the ground surrounding the tree. Sometimes, you’ll notice these issues even if the tree doesn’t have any other visible problems. Shedding is a surefire sign that something isn’t right with a tree.

Usually, falling sticks and bark are an alert that there’s an underlying disease in the tree. Usually, this stems from an infection or abnormal fungal growth. Calling a Dallas tree service can help you figure out the issue and come up with a plan for saving or removing the tree.

6. The Bark Has No Green

Healthy tree bark will have some green underneath the top layer. This is because they have a regular nutrient flow from the soil.

If there’s tree root damage or something else killing it, it will stop absorbing these nutrients. This means that there won’t be a green layer underneath the bark.

If you suspect that your tree is dying, scratch the surface of the bark. You should see some green when the top layer peels away. If you don’t, it’s probably dead and requires tree removal.

7. You See Fungus Growing

Little mushrooms and cool fungi on the base of your tree look cool and are interesting to photograph. Unfortunately, they’re also signs of serious issues that you need to immediately look into. It’s often possible to save the tree if you call in experts the second you notice the problem, though not always.

Rotting bark is also a sign of a fungal infection. Basically, if you notice a weird growth or oddly textured bark, you probably are struggling with decay.

Deal with it right away. If you don’t, the fungus may spread to surrounding trees. It’s contagious, and getting rid of it will protect the other trees and foliage on your property.

8. Pests on the Tree

Trees are the target of lots of outdoor pests. Wood-boring termites and beetles can take your tree down in weeks. In Dallas, you might also have to contend with barklice, soapberry borers, and webworms.

If you start to notice these pests, call someone to assess the situation ASAP. The problem will get worse as bugs bore deeper into your tree because that requires them to consume more of the wood. It hollows out your tree and damages its structural integrity, killing it slowly.

Get Started

Now that you know some signs of a dead tree in your yard, it’s time to get started. Green Pine is committed to helping you remove a dying tree from your yard to keep you and your property safe.

Our team will also grind the stumps to maintain your curb appeal and property value. Contact us with any remaining questions and get an arborist evaluation today.

A Homeowner’s Guide to Different Types of Tree Diseases

In the US, there are 228 billion trees, which might sound like a lot. But the truth is, deforestation is rapidly occurring, so we need every tree we can get.

Homeowners can do their part in caring for the environment by planting trees on their properties. Not only does it help the local ecosystem, but it’ll also beautify their houses.

To keep these trees strong and healthy though, you need to be on the lookout for tree diseases. By being proactive, you can prevent your greenery from withering.

Keep reading to see which tree diseases you should be aware of.

Oak Wilt

If you have oak trees in your yard, then this is definitely one to watch out for. While this tree disease can happen to any type of oak, there are some species that are more susceptible, such as live and red oaks. On the other hand, if you’ve got white, Mexican, Chinquapin, or bur oaks, they’ll be more resistant to oak wilt.

Once your trees are afflicted, then you’ll see leaf browning and dropping. If the infection is bad enough, the trees can die.

It’s important to get immediate Dallas tree service if you notice oak wilt, as it can spread. The main ways it’ll do so is through root grafts and nitidulid beetles. In the meantime, digging a trench between infested and healthy trees can slow infections in your yard.

To prevent oak wilt, apply systemic fungicides. Pruning the infested branches in the winter and fall when beetles have stopped feeding on the sap can help too.

Hypoxylon Canker

This is another disease that oak trees are susceptible to, as well as elms, pecans, and sycamores. Hypoxylon canker is a quick and fatal disease, so it’s imperative that you check your trees often.

Symptoms of this tree disease are bark peeling, dark-colored spores underneath, and sapwood decay. Hypoxylon canker usually happens when there are periods of drought, so be extra vigilant during these times.

You can keep this disease at bay by ensuring your trees have plenty of water during droughts. You should also take care of wounds immediately should they get scratches, cuts, or broken branches. Avoid using tree paints and sealers though, as they’ll do harm.

Otherwise, you’ll have to get professional tree removal services once your trees have hypoxylon canker, as there’s no cure.

Cedar-Hawthorn Rust

Cedar-hawthorn rust mostly happens in the spring and mid-summer. It’s the most common tree disease you’ll see in hawthorns and junipers, and is a fungal infection caused by Gymnosporangium globosum.

Symptoms of cedar-hawthorn rust include orange or yellow spots on leaves, as well as leaf dropping, small, round, reddish-brown galls on twigs, and aesia (cluster cups).

The fungal infection can be stubborn, so it’s best to have professionals treat your trees. They’ll remove all galls, and even branches and fruits if needed.

Fire Blight

Those growing fruits should look out for fire blight. This is a bacterial disease that mostly hits fruit trees, especially ones bearing apples and pears.

Take a close look at the shoot tips; if they’re bending into hook shapes, then your fruit trees may have fire blight. The leaves and flowers may also be blackening quickly, as well as the branches. The blackened branches can develop cankers too, which then ooze sticky liquid.

Once the bacteria have broken out of the cankers, other parts of the tree and those next to it can become infected fast, thanks to birds and bees flying around. At the first sign of trouble, have your trees professionally trimmed. You can also use fungicides on the buds before they open so it kills off bacteria.

Bacterial Leaf Scorch

Bacterial leaf scorch doesn’t happen as often as the other diseases on this list, but it’s still one you need to watch out for. Tree types that are susceptible to this disease include oaks, elms, sycamores, and boxelders.

To identify bacterial leaf scorch, look at the leaves, where you’ll see a yellow band between the green tissue and the tips of the leaves, which are scorched. You might also see early leaf dropping and branch dieback. Typically, these symptoms are at their worst in mid to late summer.

Bacterial leaf scorch is spread through insects such as leafhoppers. So as you can see, the disease can afflict your other plants fast. Not only that, but once they’re sick, they’ll be more vulnerable to other pests and infections.

Dutch Elm Disease

Dutch elm disease is another uncommon tree disease, but since it’s a devastating one, it’s worth knowing about. Cedar elms are particularly vulnerable to it.

Previously, this disease has swept through the Midwest and the Northeast, thanks to bark beetles. Dutch elm disease has also hit parts of Texas, such as North Richland Hills.

If your trees become diseased, leaves will yellow and wither, starting from the top, and moving downwards. Once the infection reaches the roots, the entire tree dies.

What’s so challenging about Dutch elm disease is that it’s so serious, by the time you notice it, you can’t treat your trees. However, Alamo and Arbotect seem to work on it if you apply them early enough. Otherwise, afflicted trees need to be professionally removed.

Look Out for These Tree Diseases

These tree diseases may sound scary, and indeed, many of them can kill your trees quickly. However, if you keep a sharp eye on your greenery and call a skilled arborist right away, it’s possible to save your plants.

Most importantly, you should have them come on a regular basis. They can assess your trees’ current conditions, then come up with a customized preventative care plan that addresses potential problems and solutions. As a result, you can avoid heartaches in the future.

5 Signs It’s Time for Tree Removal in Dallas

A well-maintained, mature tree can increase your property value by 7-19%. They’re easy to use as a centerpiece of your landscaping to draw in the eye of visitors and potential buyers.

The problem is that, like any living thing, they can get sick or damaged as they mature. Keeping them on the property for too long once this happens presents a danger to you and your community.

Read on to learn five important signs it might be time to call for tree removal.

1. Signs of Damage or Decay

If you’re not sure if your tree is alive, there are several signs you can look out for. A dying tree will have:

  • Vertical cracks in the trunk
  • Bark peeling
  • Dead branch stubs
  • Open cavities

If a professional determines you have a dead tree, you’ll need to have it removed. It’ll free up space in your yard and prevent any issues such as fungus or illness from spreading.

2. Dead or Dying Branches

Pruning branches is an important part of tree care and can help extend your tree’s life. If dead or dying branches keep showing up, it may be a sign that the tree needs to be removed entirely.

Get rid of branches that are crossed or rubbing together or narrow branches at an angle. Do this while the tree is young to prevent splitting.

Dead branches on one side are a sign of rot or trunk damage on that side. That could cause the tree to lean or tip over.

3. Leaning

Certain trees grow at an angle while stretching for sunlight in the early stages. This isn’t a problem unless it starts to create balance issues.

Tree roots aren’t always strong enough to support trees that have a significant lean. They can fall after weather such as:

  • Storms
  • Water
  • Ice
  • Snow
  • Extreme winds

A lean can start to uproot the tree or be a sign of decay. Both are worthwhile reasons to get it removed.

4. Sprouts at the Base

Sprouts at the base of a tree are a sign of severe stress. These include:

  • New home construction
  • Injury
  • Overexposure to sun
  • Thinning
  • Soil compaction

Pulling these sprouts out isn’t enough to solve the problem. It’s a sign that the tree couldn’t endure a recent ordeal and needs to be removed.

5. It Keeps Other Plants from Growing

81% of Americans have a lawn. 47% regularly use it at least once a month for entertainment. Nothing ruins a garden party (or any time outside) faster than plants or grass choked out by a large shade tree.

Removing it will help non-shade-resistant grass and plants grow. It’ll also help stop your neighbors from complaining if it’s keeping their lawns from growing.

Where to Get Tree Removal Services

Trees that show signs of death or decay need to be removed. One of these signs is repeated dead or decaying branches, especially if they only show up on one side

Trees that lean are prone to falling after any significant weather events. They’ll also keep other plants from growing.

5 Questions to Ask Before Choosing a Tree Service in Dallas

As of 2023, there are over 148,800 tree-trimming services in the US. Based on this number, it’s fair to assume that many of these companies are located in Texas; more specifically, Dallas.

If you live in the local area, then you’ll have plenty of choices. But for things to go smoothly, you’ll need to vet your choices to end up with the best tree service possible.

A great way to do this is to “interview” businesses with some prepared questions. Here are five you should ask before choosing a tree service in Dallas.

1. How Many Years of Experience Do You Have?

In general, you’ll want to work with someone with over five years of experience. This ensures that they’ve had enough time to not only perfect their tree services, but also their business operations.

After all, it takes both excellence and consistency to keep a company running.

2. Do You Have Certified Arborists on Your Team?

The International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) has a program for Tree Risk Assessment Qualification (TRAQ). Professionals go through lots of hard work and testing to get the certification. They don’t keep it forever either; they have to retrain and retest every five years to maintain their certification.

Needless to say, having a TRAQ-certified arborist work on your property is ideal. They’ll have the right skills and equipment to perform tree services in a safe and reliable fashion.

3. Are You Insured?

Even the best in the industry can’t guarantee that every job will go correctly. Nature is unpredictable, so it’s vital that the tree service company is properly insured.

Ask them for proof of insurance so you can have peace of mind. That way, if anyone gets injured or your property gets damaged, their policy will cover these things.

4. Do You Include Stump Grinding?

If you need tree removal done, then make sure to ask if the business includes stump grinding. This can make a huge difference in your estimates, as some companies don’t put that cost in their tree removal estimate.

Without clarification, you can be hit with a huge financial surprise if you want complete tree removal services.

5. What Are Your Cleanup Services Like?

A reputable company will leave your property just as clean as they found it. Others may do a half-job, while others will leave everything on the ground.

When requesting estimates, ask whether cleanup services are included. If not, then specifically ask for it to be done if that’s what you want. Just be aware that you may have to pay extra.

Get Quality Tree Service in Dallas

If you need tree service in Dallas, then do your due diligence first. Picking the first company you see isn’t wise, as you’re taking a gamble.

So take the time to ask questions and request multiple quotes. This will help you narrow things down and ultimately, choose a fantastic local tree service.

A Quick Guide to Spring Tree Maintenance

Did you know that it’s important to frequently prune, mulch, and water trees that are younger than two years old?

Spring is the season of renewal and rejuvenation, and it’s also the perfect time to start thinking about tree maintenance.

Trees are an essential part of our environment. They offer shade, improve air quality, and increase property value.

But it is important to properly care for your trees in the spring. To help you understand the importance of hiring a Dallas tree service, we’ve written a guide. Keep reading to find out more.

Mulching Your Trees

Mulch is a layer of organic material that you can place on the soil around the base of a tree.

It can help to retain soil moisture. This is particularly important during the spring when temperatures are rising and rainfall tends to be inconsistent. By adding mulch, you will prevent the soil around trees from drying out.

Mulch also provides a barrier between the tree’s roots and the surrounding environment. This helps to regulate soil temperature and protect the roots from extreme temperatures.

Pruning in the Spring

By removing dead or diseased branches, you can improve the overall appearance of your trees and encourage new growth. Before you start to prune a tree, make sure to inspect it for any damaged or diseased branches.

Use pruning shears or a handsaw to remove these branches, cutting at a 45-degree angle just above the branch collar.

It’s also a good idea to trim leaves and thin out crowded branches. This will improve air circulation and increase sunlight exposure.

Spring Tree Removal

Dead or diseased trees can pose a threat to people, pets, and structures. In some cases, trees might need to be removed due to their size or location.

If you need to get rid of a tree, it is essential to make use of proper tree removal techniques. By doing this, you’ll be more likely to cause damage to surrounding trees or structures.

This is why it’s a good idea to consult with a certified arborist for safe and efficient tree removal services.

Get Tree Maintenance Help

DIY tree maintenance may seem like a straightforward solution. But it can be dangerous to do this on your own if you don’t have the proper knowledge and equipment.

Hiring professional tree services can save time, guarantee safety, and protect the health of your trees. Certified arborists have the training and experience needed to identify potential hazards.

They also know how to diagnose tree diseases and properly prune trees.

10 Signs It’s Time to Call an Arborist for an Evaluation

Did you know that a mature pine tree can add up to $1,320 worth of value to your property each year? Trees are not only beautiful, but they are also valuable assets to your home. However, like any living thing, trees can get sick and die if not properly cared for.

This is where an arborist comes in. An arborist is a specialist in the care and maintenance of trees, and they can help keep your trees healthy and thriving.

In this article, we will discuss the top ten signs that it’s time to call an arborist for an evaluation. From cracks or splits in the trunk to signs of decay, we will cover it all, so you can keep your trees healthy and prevent the dangers of a dying tree.

1) Cracks or Splits in the Trunk

The trunk of a tree is its backbone, and any damage to it can cause the tree to become unstable and pose a risk to people and property around it. Cracks or splits in the trunk are serious indicators of tree problems that need the attention of an arborist. Here are some reasons why:

  • They can be indicative of structural issues, such as a weak attachment of the trunk to the root system, a result of strong winds or storms, or even decay
  • They can be an entry point for insects or pathogens that can infect the tree and cause it to die
  • They can expose deadwood or decay that can cause the tree to become unstable, fall or drop limbs

2) Dead or Dying Branches

Dead or dying branches are a hazard that can fall and cause damage or injury to people or property. They can be caused by pests, disease, or weather-related damage. An arborist can assess the health of the tree and determine the best course of action, which may include pruning or removing the affected branches.

3) Discolored Leaves

Discolored leaves are a sign of disease or pest infestation. Different types of discoloration can indicate different types of problems, such as yellowing from a lack of nutrients or brown spots from fungal diseases. An arborist can identify the cause of the discoloration and recommend a treatment plan to restore the tree’s health.

4) Wilted Leaves

Wilted leaves are a sign of drought or root damage. If the tree is not getting enough water, its leaves will start to droop and curl. If the roots are damaged, they can’t absorb water properly, leading to wilted leaves.

An arborist can evaluate the tree’s root system and recommend solutions, such as watering, fertilization, or root pruning.

5) Fungus Growth

Fungus growth on the tree or around its base is a sign of decay and weakening of the tree. Fungi can cause wood rot, which can lead to structural issues and make the tree more prone to falling. An arborist can identify the type of tree fungus and recommend a treatment plan to stop its growth and prevent further damage.

6) Peeling Bark

Peeling bark is a sign of disease, pests, or environmental stress. It can also be a sign of age, but in younger trees, it’s a cause for concern. An arborist can evaluate the tree’s health and determine the best course of action, which may include treatment for pests or disease or monitoring the tree’s condition.

7) Fallen Branches

If branches are falling off the tree, it’s a sign of a problem with the tree’s structural integrity. This can be caused by disease, pests, or environmental stress. An arborist can assess the extent of the damage and recommend the best course of action, which may include pruning or removal of the affected branches or the entire tree.

8) Leaning Tree

A leaning tree is a sign of root damage or a problem with the tree’s structural integrity. If the tree is leaning significantly, it can be a hazard that can fall and cause damage or injury. An arborist can evaluate the extent of the damage and recommend the best course of action, which may include bracing, cabling, or removal of the tree.

9) Multiple Trunks

Trees with multiple trunks are structurally weak and more prone to splitting or falling. An arborist can evaluate the health of the tree and recommend the best course of action, which may include the removal of one of the trunks or the entire tree.

10) Overgrown or Poorly Pruned Branches

Overgrown or poorly pruned branches can cause significant problems for your tree and your property. When branches grow too long, they can become weak and susceptible to breaking, which can lead to property damage or injury. Poor pruning techniques can also damage the tree and create entry points for pests and diseases.

Here are some signs that your tree may have overgrown or poorly pruned branches:

  • The tree has a lopsided appearance with some branches longer than others
  • The branches are crossing or rubbing against each other
  • The tree has branches that are growing toward your home or other structures
  • The branches are hanging low and obstructing walkways or views

If you notice any of these signs, it’s important to call an arborist for an evaluation. An arborist can determine if the tree needs pruning or if it’s time for tree removal.

Proper pruning techniques can help keep your tree healthy and strong. An arborist can also help determine the best pruning plan for your tree, which may include removing dead or diseased branches, thinning the crown, or raising the canopy.

Keep Your Trees Healthy With A Professional Arborist

Now that you know the top ten signs to look out for when it comes to tree health, you can take action to keep your trees healthy and prevent the dangers of a dying tree. By calling an arborist for an evaluation, you are not only protecting your property, but you are also helping to preserve our natural resources.

So, if you notice any of the signs we discussed in this article, it’s time to contact an arborist. Please contact us today to schedule an appointment with one of our tree maintenance specialists in the Dallas area.

How to Choose the Right Dallas Tree Service Experts

In the US, there are over 41,000 tree trimmers and pruners. This should be reassuring to know; when you need tree services, there’s plenty of choices!

However, you need to have a discerning eye if you don’t want them to make a mess of your landscape. After all, it takes knowledge and skill to provide quality care.

To whittle down your choices, you need to know what to look for. Keep reading to see how you can choose the right Dallas tree service experts.

Check Their Years of Experience

It’s important that the company you use has been in business for many years. This indicates that they have a good reputation, which means they provide excellent tree care and customer service.

Years of experience can also indicate that they’ve ironed out all the kinks, resulting in a smoother and more pleasant experience for you.

Read Reviews

To double-check that they’ve actually provided exemplary services, you should look at customer reviews. Opt for tree experts that not only have great reviews, but also plenty of them.

Companies that have few or no reviews may be risky to go with. And needless to say, you should avoid those with scores of bad reviews.

Make Sure They’re Certified, Bonded, and Insured

In the state of Texas, there’s no state licensing board. However, arborists can become ISA-certified, so look for that if you want the best services possible.

A reputable business should also be bonded and insured. You can hire the most skilled arborists who use the right methods and equipment, but you never know if something unfortunate will happen. If it does, then you don’t want to be the person footing the bill.

Go Over Their Services

Not every tree service company will provide the same services, so it’s essential that you read over each one’s services page.

It’s optimal to pick a business that provides full services. That way, no matter your needs, you’ll have someone you trust to handle tree care.

It can also be beneficial to choose someone with lots of availability, including emergency hours. This ensures that if anything goes wrong, you’ll receive prompt service.

Ask for a Quote

Never commit to a tree care company without first asking for a quote. They may look fantastic, but if their prices are expensive, you may not be able to afford the services.

In addition, it’s a good idea to request quotes from several businesses. This allows you to compare prices vs. services, and you can also eliminate any outliers. These will probably be subpar, so it’s best to avoid these companies.

How to Prepare Your Home for Tree Removal in Dallas

Texas has been exposed to extreme weather conditions in recent months. 7 million people have been issued warnings for their homes. Therefore, it’s important that you consider tree removal Dallas companies when looking to clear your property after strong weather conditions.

Without removing a dead tree or hiring a professional tree service, you can risk injury and further damage to your home.

But first, you must prepare your home for tree removal. So here is your guide to getting ready for dead tree removal at home.

Prepare for Tree Removal Dallas Services

Getting prepared for tree removal Dallas services is about more than just booking an appointment with a professional company. You need to ensure that your property is cleared of leftover garbage and there’s a pathway for workers when they arrive to complete the job.

So, you should start by clearing the area outside your home.

Clear the Surrounding Area

Depending on where the tree is located, you might have to take a few days or hours to clear the surrounding area. This is important if the tree is situated near a car or other vehicle that could get damaged by dead branches.

Likewise, tree removal services need to have full access to the tree, which means there has to be a path for them to walk through. If there isn’t already a path, you should create temporary access. This will make it easier for employees to bring their tools and get their work done quickly.

Get Rid of Breakable Items

The last thing you want during a tree removal service is for furniture or other outdoor items to be broken. But you need to clear them beforehand if you want to protect them from damage which means moving them indoors. Otherwise, you can place a protective cover over them.

For example, if you have an outdoor BBQ, you can consider placing a plastic cover on it during the tree removal.

It’s also important that you park cars in a garage or driveway to keep them out of the way of the workers when they are on your property.

Check You Don’t Need a Permit

Most of the time, it’s not necessary to have a permit for removing trees on your property, but if the tree is situated on an open road, it’s good to check with local authorities. That way, you won’t run into any problems when you hire your tree removal company to take away a dead tree.

If you have any questions about the tree removal process, you can always reach out to the customer service team of your tree removal team. The main thing is that you clear the area and get the necessary permit before you start work.

Schedule Tree Removal in Dallas

Even though there are several tree removal Dallas companies, it’s essential that you find a professional team that communicates clearly and is available for questions during the process.

So, get in touch with our team and book a tree removal service that’s quick and affordable.

8 Benefits of Professional Tree Trimming in Dallas

Are you a homeowner in the Dallas area with trees on your property?

If so, you’ve probably experienced tree damage at one time or another. Tree maintenance can be a headache, especially after a storm or high winds, and yet regular tree pruning is a crucial component of tree maintenance. That’s because there are numerous benefits to hiring a professional tree service to perform this task.

Here we take a look at why tree trimming Dallas is a smart investment for homeowners. Keep reading to learn more.

1. Promotes Tree Health

One of the primary benefits of professional tree trimming is that it can improve the overall health of the tree. Regular trimming can remove dead, diseased, or weak branches, which can help prevent the spread of pests and diseases. Trimming can also stimulate new growth and improve air circulation, leading to stronger, healthier trees.

2. Improves Aesthetic Appeal

Professional tree trimming in Dallas can shape and enhance the natural beauty of the tree, making it more visually appealing. Trimming can also remove branches that obstruct views or light, and make the tree more structurally sound.

3. Increases Property Value

A well-maintained tree adds to the beauty and value of your property. Professional tree trimming can keep the tree healthy and looking its best, which can increase your property’s value and appeal. A tree that is properly pruned and shaped can also enhance the overall appearance of your property.

4. Enhances Safety

Overgrown or damaged branches can pose a safety risk to your property and people. Professional tree trimming can remove weak or hazardous branches that could fall and cause damage during high winds or storms. Proper trimming for your Dallas home can also prevent branches from growing too close to power lines, roofs, or other structures.

5. Increases Sunlight and Airflow

Trimming trees can open up the canopy, allowing more sunlight to reach the lower branches and surrounding plants. This can improve the overall health of your landscape by encouraging the growth of other plants and reducing the chances of pests and diseases.

6. Maintains Shape and Size

Trees can become overgrown and unwieldy, which can detract from the beauty and functionality of your landscape. Professional tree pruning can maintain the size and shape of the tree, making it more visually appealing and functional for your property.

7. Ensures Proper Tree Care

Professional tree trimming services have the expertise and equipment necessary to properly care for trees. They can identify issues and recommend the best solutions to ensure the long-term health and beauty of your trees. They can also ensure that the trimming is done safely and correctly, which can prevent further damage to the tree or property.

8. Saves Money

Regular tree trimming can help prevent property damage and save you money in the long run. Weak or damaged branches can fall and cause damage to structures or vehicles, which can be expensive to repair or replace. Professional tree trimming can also help prevent the need for costly emergency tree services.
