Our pros can handle all aspects of tree care, including tree removal, trimming and fertilization.

ABC’s experienced team can handle any type of problem or question you have about your trees.

Trees require specialized care that is often best performed by highly-trained professionals who have a thorough understanding of how local conditions and weather can impact tree health. ABC’s tree care specialists can assess your trees and suggest a plan to treat a variety of issues and provide proper care.

Tree Trimming

There are many reasons why homeowners may need tree branches pruned:

ABC’s certified arborists also trim back tree branches safely and in a way that keeps your trees healthy. In addition, we can remove deadwood or moss balls, and clear any branches or twigs that may have fallen on your roof during a storm. We can even recommend and make repairs on your property if damage from tree limbs after a storm has been extensive.

Tree Removal

Over time, trees on your property may die or become diseased. Or, there are situations in which a homeowner may be faced with a difficult decision to remove an otherwise healthy tree because it is growing too close to utility lines or your home’s foundation; or maybe you need to make room for expanding your home’s footprint because of a remodel. In any of these situations, a professional is best equipped to advise you on whether a tree should be removed and how to handle the job in a way that’s safe and takes into account any unique circumstances or features of your property.

Why might my tree need to be trimmed or removed?

There are a variety of reasons homeowners should consider removing trees on their property, including:

  • Trees growing too close to your home. Branches can scratch your roof and siding and a large tree’s root system can destroy your home’s foundation.
  • Dead or diseased trees which are at risk of falling or losing limbs. Many of us don’t detect signs of common tree conditions until it’s too late. An arborist can perform a health check of your tree to determine how likely it is to fall or shed large and heavy branches.
  • Trees posing a safety hazard. If a tree grows too close to a power line, homeowners risk power failures, electrical fires and electrocution.
  • Storm damage which weakens a tree. In some cases, damage from a weather-related event can compromise the structural integrity of a tree, putting you and your family at risk if the tree falls.

Disease Remediation

Your trees may be in trouble because of a number of different conditions, and the appropriate plan of action starts with diagnosing the problem. Depending on the nature and severity of the issue, we may recommend foliar sprays, trunk injections or other treatment methods.

Some of the more common tree diseases see in our area include:

  • oak wilt,
  • hypoxylon canker,
  • root rot,
  • bacterial leaf scorch,
  • pest infestations,
  • blight and
  • drought damage.

With the help of our certified arborists, we can get your trees back to optimal health.

Insect and Pest Removal

You may be concerned when you see insects on your trees, and this may or may not be negatively impacting your tree health. Your ABC arborist can conduct an evaluation to determine what type of intervention might be necessary, which can include insecticide sprays or trunk injections.

Tree Fertilization

Fortifying your trees with additional nutrients can help promote healthy root development and protect against disease. Our certified arborists can look for signs that your trees may benefit from fertilization. If that is the case, we can recommend a schedule of visits to keep your trees healthy, all year long.

Tree Air Excavation

When we walk around our trees, the surrounding soil can become compacted. As time goes on, this tightly packed soil can make it difficult for trees to receive proper water and nutrients. With ABC’s tree air excavation service, we will loosen up this compacted soil and make sure that your trees are getting everything they need to grow healthy and strong.

We offer a number of tree air excavation services to keep your trees healthy, including:

  • Corrective on girdling roots — After our signature root collar excavation service, our trained experts will assess the root system that has been exposed. In some cases, some roots need to be pruned because they are girdling (cutting circulation) major anchorage roots.
  • De-compacting soil — Texas is notorious for producing some of the harshest soil conditions unfavorable for tree healthy. Trees need to be able to expand their root system throughout the soil. Therefore, our air excavation service will de-compact the soil within the critical root zone of your tree. This will allow for your trees root system to expand and grow, improving your tree’s health.
  • Vertical mulching — This service uses the air spade tool to create two-inch diameter holes two inches down into the ground within the critical root zone. Once that is completed, our specialists will use our signature organic compost to back fill the holes they’ve created to help the roots expand throughout the critical root zone.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are some warning signs that might indicate a problem with my trees?

Unfortunately, long-term damage may have already occurred by the time most homeowners suspect something might be wrong with their trees. If you are concerned about a tree on your property, don’t put off contacting a trusted tree care expert to help advise you on the best next steps.

Warning signs of an unhealthy tree include:

  • Brown, wilted or discolored leaves
  • Spots or holes on growths or leaves
  • Dead branches
  • Slowed growth
  • Sudden or excessive leaf loss
  • Rotting and decay
  • Pest infestations and related damage

What should I do to protect my trees?

Homeowners value their trees, but are often unsure what they can do on their own to protect this important part of their landscape.

A few things you can do to care for your trees is to:

  • Avoid planting trees right next to your home’s foundation. Homeowners are often unable to predict how a tree’s root structure will develop over time, and tree roots too close to your living structure can penetrate your foundation or cause instability.
  • Remove dead trees close to your house. Over time, a dead tree will shed smaller twigs and then larger branches. Eventually, the trunk can fall unless it is removed.
  • Protect root systems from damage by preventing soil compaction. Tree roots provide stability and nourishment. Roots can be cut while you are digging and aerating in your lawn, and the pressure from cars and even heavy foot traffic can harm your trees.

Can mulch help my trees?

Mulch can be beneficial to your tree’s health by:

  • Providing a buffer against extreme temperatures
  • Retaining water to keep roots nourished
  • Discouraging weeds, which drain needed moisture and nutrients from your soil
  • Preventing soil compaction
  • Reducing damage to roots that might occur when mowing your lawn

To get the most benefit from mulch:

  • Remove grass in a three to ten-foot radius of your tree, depending on the size of your tree
  • Add a two to four-inch layer of natural mulch, such as wood chips or pieces of bark
  • Carefully spread mulch so that you don’t accidentally cut or damage any roots.

What happens during the free consultation?

When you contact ABC for tree service, we will schedule a time that works for you for an inspector to meet you at your home. At that time, our inspector will:

  • Ask you questions to learn more about what you would like done and your budget
  • Take a closer look at your trees and yard
  • Make recommendations on how to best care for your trees
  • Answer any questions you might have

After that meeting, ABC will send you a FREE, no-obligation estimate. Once you approve the estimate, we can schedule a time for the work to begin. In most cases, our tree specialists can perform tree service when you are away at work.

“Ever since I got ABC to do my pest control it's been hit and miss with techs they sent. Then they sent Nick Teutsch aka the amazing Flynn Ryder himself and ever since then he is the only tech I request to do my pest control. He is super friendly and ever since he started I haven't had any bug problems whatsoever and if I did it was never a problem to get him to help us. He also recommended their AC department which I gladly signed up for and continued to be impressed since other AC people around here tend to makeup issues and gouge me for money. Not these people at ABC. If you decide on ABC for pest control, ask for Nick and you will have a wonderful reliable experience.”
