Pruning and trimming are two great ways to keep up with your trees’ health while also helping to maintain their structure. Pruning is the process of selectively removing branches from a tree based upon its location, size, growth, and more. Pruning also encourages trees to grow better and in healthier ways. As trees continue to grow, they can get in the way of things like power lines and quickly become a safety issue. To help avoid issues like these, it is recommended that property owners perform regular tree trimming and pruning every few years, at the minimum, to keep their trees healthy, safe, and looking great, too.
Tree removal is a difficult and dangerous process that should always be done by professionals. Whether a tree dies, falls, or gets struck by lightning, our team at Capitol Tree Care will assess the situation and determine the best way to remove the tree safely. Because tree stumps are often rooted deeply in the ground and quite the challenge to remove entirely, we also offer stump grinding as a part of our tree removal services. This ensures that the entirety of the removal process is done properly and safely by people with years of experience. Don’t attempt to remove a tree on your own.
Unless you’re a professional or the issues are blatantly obvious, it can be hard to identify problems with your trees. The health of your trees is affected by a variety of factors such as climate, disease, insects, amount of water, and much more. Because of this, having a professional assess your trees’ health is much more helpful than you might think. Whether you’re worried about your trees’ health or you just want to be proactive by having them checked, Capitol Tree Care has got you covered. Feel free to contact us now for a free quote.
Knowing the safety risks of the trees around your home or work is important, especially in helping prevent any disasters. Whether you just moved into a new home or you’re worried about that one tree in your backyard that seems to lean a little too much, having a tree risk assessment done by trained professionals will help keep you safe in the long run. Our arborists here at Capitol Tree Care take multiple factors into consideration when assessing trees and surrounding areas. They look at aspects such as present decay or disease, poor branch unions, physical damage, buried root collars, and overloaded branches. If any issues are identified, our team will help to come up with a plan to fix them quickly.
Many homeowners are unaware of just how crucial oxygen levels in their soil are. Over time, soil becomes compacted, which is a common problem here in the Austin area. Aerating your soil is a great way to increase soil structure, soil moisture, and oxygen levels. Our Airspade services can also be used for root collar exposure. This service exposes root collars that are receiving too much moisture, helping them to breathe better.
Sometimes trees grow at odd angles, with too much weight on one side or multiple dominant leads. When this happens, sometimes pruning isn’t quite enough to balance them out. In that case, tree cabling and bracing can work to keep your tree’s structure intact without causing it further harm. Our team of arborists are trained to be able to identify issues within a tree’s structure and determine a solution that can save them. If you have a tree that seems to struggle with bearing its own weight or that you think would benefit from cabling and bracing, contact us for help.
Without the proper foundation, no plants are able to grow. That’s why healthy soil promotes healthy trees. As part of our professional tree services, we offer tree fertilization that directly targets critical areas of trees and shrubs to give them essential nutrients. Our custom spray rig uses a deep-root feeding method with Liquid Compost Extract (LCE) solution. LCE solution helps to not only improve water retention and build soil structure, but it also increases microorganisms and beneficial microbes within the soil, doing wonders for the health of your trees.
Mistletoe is often referred to as a parasite because, in order to grow, it must steal nutrients from a larger host. This means that, when the plant attaches to a tree, it quickly infects the tree and can cause it to fail. Because of this, heavily infected trees can be stunted or even die. On the other hand, there’s ball moss—though this plant doesn’t leech off of the nutrients of other trees like mistletoe does, ball moss can still affect tree growth. The more ball moss that sprouts on a tree, the less branches can grow on that tree. If the ball moss overloads a branch, it can cause it to break off. Dead or dying branches hurt trees’ overall health by affecting the way they grow and causing further damage within them. Don’t let ball moss or mistletoe spread throughout your yard. Call our tree experts to get them removed immediately and keep your trees as healthy as possible.
Our tree experts understand just how challenging taking care of trees can be. Each tree’s needs are different and depend upon aspects like the soil, climate, and stressors around them. For homeowners, knowing, assessing, and treating every factor of their trees’ health is time consuming and often difficult. That’s why our tree service company offers an Organic Plant Health Care Program. Our Organic Plant Health Care Program consists of our International Society of Arboriculture certified arborists visiting and assessing your trees each season of the year. Our program keeps a close eye on your trees, which allows us to quickly identify any changes and maintain their health. Our arborists will work to deter pests, keep oxygen levels healthy, fertilize, and more. To keep your trees the healthiest they’ve ever been, enroll in our Organic Plant Health Care Program.
Oak wilt is a fungal disease that targets oak trees, especially here in Texas. The fungus that causes it spreads easily through insects and poorly cleaned pruning tools, and it can even kill a tree within one growing season. Because oak wilt acts so quickly, it’s crucial to get it treated fast. Luckily, our team of experts at Capitol Tree Care can help save your oak trees before it’s too late. Don’t hesitate to call for oak wilt management or any of your other tree care needs.
Unfortunately, a lot of developers don’t pay enough attention to surrounding areas when they are working. When this happens, damage to trees and their root systems can occur, potentially causing defects or death. If you are looking to do construction on your home, even if it’s just a simple addition, contact one of our tree experts to make sure that your trees are protected. With our construction protection services, our arborists can assess your trees and help you build a construction plan with a variety of protection methods that cause them no harm. From mulching important root zones to wrapping trunks, our construction protection will keep your trees safe.
It’s easy to collect brush in your yard, especially when you have a bigger property. That’s why Capitol Tree Care also offers lot clearing services to help our clients tidy up. Our brush hauling services take your excess sticks, logs, etc. off your hands and to a recycling station where they can be turned into compost and mulch. This way we can help the environment, too. If you have a pile of brush sitting in your yard, call our tree service company to get it removed properly.
