I was very impressed with the tree trim crew, they did an excellent job on the trees and were very good at talking to us and explaining the service. We would have them out again in a heartbeat!

What tree services do you offer?

We provide a full range of tree services from basic tree trimming and inspection to fertilization and storm damage mitigation.

Trimming

Trees must be trimmed on a regular basis. Not only is there a danger from falling limbs, but regular trimming also encourages healthy and more attractive growth. Leave the ladder and trunk climbing to our trained and experienced specialists.

Fertilization

It is not uncommon for a tree that may appear healthy to, in fact, be starved for nutrients. Let us assess the health of your trees and provide the fertilization that they crave. They’ll thank you for it with beautiful green leaves and outstanding health & growth!

Storm damage

Everyone in Austin has been through at least one storm or wind event when limbs have dropped unexpectedly from the trees. The cleanup can be challenging and the tree might even suffer permanent damage. Let ABC help you recover after damaging storms and keep your trees in tip-top shape.

What are the qualifications of your arborists?

Our highly-qualified arborists hold ISA certification, Texas Oak Wilt certification and TDA Commercial Pesticide Applicator certification. They are trained and experienced in dealing with the native and nonnative trees of central Texas. It's good to ask for credentials from anyone you may have work on your trees, before allowing any work to be done.

 

                          

I have a tree that is looking unhealthy. What should I do?

Don’t delay. By the time a tree is showing signs of distress, it may already be well along the path to long-term damage. If you value the trees on your property, let ABC visit and make an assessment of the needs of your trees. Trees can suffer from a wide range of maladies - some severe and some mild. Things like oak wilt, fungus, mildew, lack of water, and various types of blight are all possible. A assessment of your trees by ABC's licensed arborists is only a phone call away.

Should I mulch around our trees?

A tree’s best friend can often be mulch. Mulch is a valuable for tree health and care because:

  • Mulch insulates the soil helping to provide a buffer from extreme temperatures
  • Mulch retains water and helps keep the roots healthy
  • Mulch serves to reduce weeds prevent root competition for water and nutrients
  • Mulch helps prevent soil compaction
  • Mulch can reduce lawn mower blade damage

Steps to Adding Mulch Around Your Tree

Add mulch to the base of your tree by removing any grass within a three to ten foot area depending on the size of your tree.

Pour natural mulch such as wood chips or bark pieces two to four inches deep within the circle.

Be careful to not cut or damge the roots or bark if you use tools to spread the mulch.
