Dallas Has its Share of Harmful Tree Hazards

Tuesday, May 25, 2010 @ 12:05 PM  posted by admin

No doubt, trees offer an entire array of benefits for residences, businesses and cities across the country. However, when trees fall in Dallas, just like every other place under the sun, they can potentially harm both property and residents.

Trees are an integral part of our world, offering a wide range of benefits that impacts the environment at every stage. When a tree or part of a tree falls the situation can often end up being “hazardous.” Then, it’s the owner’s responsibility to make sure his or her property is safe. Evaluating the seriousness of a hazardous tree situation is best done by professional arborists. Once a hazardous situation is identified, steps can be taken to reduce the likelihood of anyone being injured.

Be on the lookout for these potential tree hazards:

• Large dead branches on the tree
• Large dead branches hanging from the tree
• Cavities of rotten wood within the tree trunk or in various branches
• Fallen branches on the ground
• A leaning tree
• Branches clustered from one point on a tree trunk
• Premature coloring of leaves
• A heavily pruned and topped tree

If you think you have any of the above conditions, a qualified arborist can help you manage a potentially hazardous situation and suggest some viable solutions such as removing potential targets out of the way, removing defective branches, bracing the tree with support cables, removing the tree or providing needed care.

Looking to get a few things accomplished? Why not trust the professionals at Wauson Tree Service to evaluate the situation and come up with the perfect solution!

A Day-In-The-Life of a Dallas Arborist

Tuesday, May 18, 2010 @ 11:05 AM  posted by admin

Ever wonder what a day-in-the life of a Dallas arborist is like? First, an arborist is that a professional who safely oversees the management of trees. You can find them employed anywhere in the world, from professional tree care services to universities, hospitals and corporate grounds.

Diagnostic Prevention

Arborists are the unsung heroes who diagnose and treat the diseases and bacteria that affect and kill trees and plants. They’re educated folks and are required to have a degree in their field. There are ailments, if not diagnosed and properly treated, that could potentially wipe out entire forests and landscapes.

Damage Control

Arborists are big on the prevention of tree diseases and other maladies waiting in the wings. When assessing your property needs, they’re able to make the decision whether your property needs tree pruning, pesticide applications, pet control, cabling, tree removal or general landscaping.

Cosmetic Enhancement

If a certified arborist is working on your property, be sure and give him or her plenty of room to maneuver too. Cosmetic maintenance and design are a big showstopper in their bag of tricks. They’re able to plan and chart strategically for tree planting, tree removal, trimming trees and keeping track of all the plants on your property. They can do it all.

Tree Repair

No one really thinks in terms of trees needing to be “repaired.” The truth is humans or natural occurrences from nature, such as wind or rain, damage trees on a regular basis. Even something as seemingly trivial as a missing piece of bark can end up allowing harmful bacteria or molds to gain entrance to the tree’s system.

The job of an arborist can be a bit challenging and difficult at times too. He or she must be physically capable to climb trees, and operate heavy machinery and potentially dangerous equipment.

Just think! All of this just to make sure your property gets the A-1 attention it deserves when an arborist pays you a visit.

What to Look for in a Tree Specialist Service in Dallas

Thursday, May 13, 2010 @ 10:05 PM  posted by admin

First of all, not all tree specialist services are the same. And this holds true for tree services in the Dallas area or anywhere else. Trees have specific care needs and should only be handled by professionals who know the turf. Whether it’s the removal of dead limbs or an unsightly tree, an arborist, both licensed and bonded, is your best bet and here’s why.

Different types of trees all need a different type of care. A person or company working on your trees can end up butchering them to grow unshapely, or worse to become diseased, which can eventually lead to death. A legitimate tree service company should be able to discuss your entire landscaping needs with you. They’ll be able to point out which trees are hindering the growth of other grasses or plants, along with identifying trees that need more shapely or uniform growth.

If a sick tree is identified, your tree specialist should know how to service and treat it. Don’t settle for less!

There aren’t too many people around that will argue that trees, properly cared for, won’t increase the value of any home or property. Properly manicured shade trees can provide shelter from the summer’s heat. Evergreen trees can serve as windbreakers or provide a screen for privacy. A tree that sheds leaves in the fall allows your home to be warmed by the sun in winter. Fruit trees can provide a snack for owners and attract numerous birds.

Dependable Tree Trimming Services in Dallas

Friday, May 7, 2010 @ 10:05 PM  posted by admin

Very seldom do people link the value of tree trimming services with the reduction of wildlife problems. The truth is tree limbs hanging over your home can give wildlife critters easy access to your roof top, attic and much more. Getting an animal off the roof is no easy task. Depending on the animal and its size, you may be forced to call a local Dallas animal control or wild life control service.

Timely visits by trained professionals, like those at Wauson Tree Service, can protect your property or home from the damage of falling limbs during heavy rains or violent wind storms.

Tree trimming, also known as tree cutting or tree pruning in some circles, provides some great benefits for home owners and property owners.

Tree Safety Benefits

Falling limbs, in addition to rooftops, can often end up resting on utility lines creating a potentially serious hazard to life and property. Moss and fungi from a tree, if left unattended, can find its way onto a rooftop and damage it over time. And roof repair is one thing that can lighten a wallet in a hurry.

Tree Health Benefits

Tree trimming can help stimulate a tree’s growth and heal damaged areas too. Quite often, removing dead, diseased, or insect-infested tree limbs can make for a healthier tree and encourage increased fruit production.

Tree Appearance Benefits

Healthy trees can increase the beauty of any property. And this means the value of your property can increase along with its beauty.

The truth is trees are a precious gift to future generations. At Wauson Tree Service, we like to think that professional tree trimming services and care of your trees today can yield you some pretty good returns tomorrow and for years to come.
