planting trees in austin    


A healthy urban forest requires constant attention and rejuvenation. Planting new trees now will allow future generations to enjoy the same shady, green Austin that we have today.

Poor planting practices start a tree on a downward spiral; planting correctly helps to ensure a tree's long-term health and survival.

We employ ISA Certified Arborists and Certified Tree Workers (Climber Specialists).

Consultation with a Certified Arborist is the first step in determining the condition of your trees and their needs. Consultation is a tool that Land/Home owners can use to identify the Arborist or group of Arborists that they wish to retain for the long-term more...

Choosing the right tree for the right place eliminates unsightly pruning to clear trees from power lines. Trees also reduce the amount of storm water that must be processed by the City. Trees also clean the air, delaying or avoiding the advent of federal mandates to deal with smog--this can reduce taxes and expenses related to driving in the City. Trees also increase property values; planting a tree can actually earn you money in the long term. Careful placement of trees can reduce electricity usage during the heat of summer; this benefits both the consumer's wallet and the City's electric utility.

In most cases, it is best to schedule tree planting for the autumn months so that roots can develop before the hot, dry weather of summer. If you have an aging or damaged tree, plant a replacement as soon as possible to avoid the sting of lost canopy when the older tree must be removed.
