Do you offer free estimates?

ABC provides no-obligation, complimentary estimates for tree service here in San Antonio. Once you reach out to us, ABC will send an inspector to your property to get more information about what you would like to have done and to make an initial assessment of the tree in question.

Our inspector will answer any questions you might have and deliver a set of recommendations and an estimate. After you approve the recommendations, ABC will schedule a service visit to get the work done. In many cases, after the initial appointment, tree service can be scheduled at a time that you are away from work, provided that you can provide us with information on how a technician can access your yard.

How can I 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? If so, how should I apply it?

Mulch is a valuable addition to your tree care regimen. Applying mulch can help your tree by:

  • Providing a buffer for your tree from extreme hot and cold temperatures

  • Keeping your roots moist by retaining water

  • Reducing any potential damage caused when you mow your yard

  • Preventing weeds which rob your tree of water and nutrients

  • Discouraging erosion so that water can sink into tree roots rather than washing away

To ensure your tree gets the biggest benefit from mulching, consider:

  • Removing grass within a three to ten-foot radius of your tree, depending on the tree’s size

  • Adding a two to four-inch layer of mulch made out of natural materials, such as bark chips or pieces of wood

  • Spreading mulch carefully so you avoid accidentally cutting or damaging your tree’s root system.

What industry certifications do your tree care professionals hold?

In addition to receiving extensive in-house training, ABC’s tree care team members hold the following professional accreditations:

Choosing a company with such extensive experience helps ensure that your trees will be cared for by individuals with the most up-to-date and accurate information on both native and non-native species.
