At Tree Guys Expert Tree Care, we will always advocate for trees but there are times when the only solution is removal. We are able to identify diseased trees that may look perfectly healthy to the average person and in the cases where we recommend removal, we completely believe in the prudence of getting a second opinion. We offer free evaluations for anyone who wants to know more about their trees and can handle jobs of all sizes and any difficulty level.
Ball Moss and Mistletoe Removal
Ball moss and Mistletoe can both be removed by hand. In order to pick it, someone needs to reach it, and that requires properly trained and equipped climbers. Tree Guys Arborists are very experienced in ball moss and mistletoe removal and we would be happy to evaluate your situation and provide you with a free estimate. Did you know that ball moss and mistletoe can both be controlled by spraying? It can sometimes take months for the dead ball moss to fall off the tree and mistletoe usually falls off within a few days but some tree owners have found that annual spraying is actually more cost effective and efficient than periodically picking by hand.
Purchasing a tree is a lifetime investment. How well the investment grows depends on the quality and type of tree selected, it’s planting location, the care provided during planting, and the follow up care after planting. Tree Guys arborists handle every step, including site analysis, selection at the nursery, transport, installation and support. Trees should be planted with the base of the trunk flare at or above the surface to allow access to atmospheric oxygen. It’s amazing how many people in the green industry (landscapers) plant trees too deep in the misguided hope that the tree will be more stable. That works great for mailboxes and telephone poles but not for your tree. Let us work with you to achieve a successful planting using scientifically proven techniques.
Tree health and tree safety go hand in hand. By pruning out all dead, weak, diseased or damaged limbs, we can improve the health, safety, and appearance of your trees. Pruning is not only an art, it’s a science. Tree Guys arborists are trained in this science and we would be happy to meet with you to discuss how everyone benefits when trees are well maintained.
Deep Root Fertilization
Deep root fertilization is the process of injecting fertilizer directly into the soil level right below the turf, where tree roots feed. Fertilizers spread on the surface of a lawn are great for the turf, but the grasses will consume it all before the tree can get any of it. A high pressure soil injection system is used to deliver not only the usual nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium (NPK) but also the micro-nutrients iron, manganese, copper, zinc, molybdenum and boron. Tree Guys arborists will also inject seventeen types of the beneficial micro-organism mycorrhizae which forms a symbiotic relationship with your tree’s roots to help it access minerals and moisture that the clay soils of Central Texas don’t want to give up
Everyone knows that the leaves of a tree breathe in carbon dioxide and give off oxygen. Did you know that roots also have to exchange gases with the atmosphere? The exchange is opposite of the leaves… roots need access to oxygen and will release carbon dioxide. Heavy clay soils, planting too deep, soil compaction during construction, and adding layers of mulch year after year can all cut off oxygen, allow carbon dioxide to build up to toxic levels in your tree’s root zone (rhizosphere) and eventually compromise the health of the tree. Soil aeration breaks up the soil allowing oxygen to penetrate into the rhizosphere and is accomplished by either drilling holes into the soil, breaking up the soil with an air spade, or by manually digging away dirt and mulch to uncover the root ball. If your tree’s health is declining, ask a Tree Guys arborist for a free evaluation and we’ll let you know if root aeration can help.
Whether we remove a tree for you or you’ve had a stump in your yard for many years, we can help. It’s important to keep in mind that a stump grinding machine is destructive by design and might not be appropriate if utilities, irrigation or other structures are very close to the stump. We’d be happy to evaluate your situation and are confident that you’ll be pleased with or services.
