Stumped in Finding the Right Dallas Stump Removal Service?

Friday, June 25, 2010 @ 07:06 PM  posted by admin

If you feel stumped about your tree problems, you’re not alone. Tree removal is a serious endeavor, and few people have the tools or the patience to properly deal with it. Tree removal can be dangerous for the inexperienced too. But for the experts, stump removal is a cinch. Trees blocking power lines or a danger to your property are best taken care of by the kind of professionals at Wauson Tree Service.

Our professionals can perform an inspection and give you an estimate of the costs. An estimate totals the amount of the labor involved, along with the machinery or equipment that’s to be used. If a tree needing removal is large, a crane is normally required because of the tree’s height. The tree’s limbs will also need removing, along with the trunk and organic material.

At times there will be events that require tree repair or surgery, such as the damage caused by a severe storm. Other cases or tree repair involve treating damage caused by a heavy chain or cable that has cut into the trunk. The professionals from Wauson Tree Service will also be able to identify any trees suffering from fungus growth.
No matter what the result, we can determine a course of action to get your property back up to speed.

The truth is no one can tell when an unexpected emergency will happen. But when it does, your property is usually left with dangerous broken limbs and hazards just beyond every step. It’s best to remove fallen trees and deadwood before it becomes a problem.

If tree stump removal is called for, we’ll use the safest and most efficient tools available. These are tools especially made and designed for stump grinding. You can rest easy knowing our lightweight machinery can be easily maneuvered around your property without leaving ugly track gouges. And the best part is we may not have to remove a fence or other fixed objects to get the job done.

Our machinery can grind tree stumps down to 6 to 8 inches below ground level. This will allow you to plant flowers, a garden or grass on top. If you choose, we can also grind the stump down deeper into the ground allowing you to plant another tree in its place. It’s all about the right equipment and hard work. And we’re able to deliver in both areas.

It all starts by allowing the professionals at Wauson Tree Service to give you a free quote. Call us today at 214-450-8720, or email us at walt {at} wausontreeservice {dot} com. We look forward to hearing from you.


Top Notch Lot Clearing Services in Dallas

Friday, June 18, 2010 @ 02:06 PM  posted by admin

Keeping your lot clear and clean of debris is the smart thing to do, especially if your property is adjacent to a neighbor’s. In addition to the ‘appealing’ factor, a clean lot discourages rodents from taking up residence. People quite often overlook the fact that a cleared lot may be a requirement of the development or area of the city in which you live. And most importantly, the local laws that promote clean-up have children in mind.

Dallas vacation time and weekends shouldn’t have to be spent clearing and cleaning lots either. Wauson Tree Service can give you a free quote of what it will take to remove unwanted trees or shrub growth. All you have to do is give us an idea of the extent you want the property cleared, and we’ll do the rest. Items such as trash, old appliances, tires, or things non-green may require an alternate solution for removal.

There may be countless reason why you need to have your lot cleared of debris. The purchase of an empty home, depending on the vacancy period, will usually have trees that need attending. Demolishing a home can leave unwanted dead trees or old tree stumps in the wake. For most people, clearing these kinds of lots is just too much of a daunting task to undertake without the help of a professional service.

The truth is, most tree removal companies don’t offer lot clearing services. They refuse to deal with the underbrush and other foliage likely to be found when cleaning up a lot to make it suitable for residency and other purposes. Tree root systems will often prove too difficult to remove by hand too. And pesty roots can wreak havoc with
your foundation plans.

Our professional arborists have a ton of experience in determining the lot clearing services needed for commercial, residential and private properties. We’ll help unclutter your property so that you can see what you have under the brush thickets. Regardless of how thick your trees or brush are, we have the equipment and skills necessary to grind our way onto your property.

Remember, you don’t have to go it alone if in need of professional lot clearing services. We’re the tree experts that can provide services for trees, damage from a storm, trimming/pruning, tree removal, stump grinding and lot clearing. And, we’re licensed and insured with years of experience.

Dallas Deep Root Fertilization

Wednesday, June 9, 2010 @ 04:06 PM  posted by admin

Just like humans that need a balanced mix of vitamins and minerals on a daily basis, trees need a balanced mix of nutrients for continued growth and survival. In their natural setting, such as in a forest, trees receive nutrients directly from the ground in the form of a rich blanket of humus. In today’s environment, fertilizer has to take the place of a tree’s natural food.

There are a lot of variables that can impact the health of a tree, including salts from the road, pollutants in the air, drainage problems and turf grass competition. These conditions produce stress on trees and can make them far more susceptible to infestations of insects and disease, all which serve to restrict a tree’s healthy growth. The best way to help trees become more resistant to the elements of nature and pest or insect infestation is to make sure they receive a healthy dose of nutrients through deep root fertilization.

This is where the professionals at Wauson Tree Service can be of service. Injecting a water and fertilizer mix below the soil’s surface throughout the root zone can serve to feed the tree’s roots and reduce soil compaction, allowing aeration of the soil directly in the root zone. Effective deep root fertilization techniques can work for certain plant varieties as well, with spring and fall generally being the best times of the year.

The best approach is to place deep root fertilizers where the tree can get to them. Keeping in mind that most tree roots are within 12″ to 18″ of the soil surface, it’s critical not to place them too deep. A professional can tell you when your tree’s roots tend to be the most active. Otherwise, the best attempts may add to groundwater contamination.

Wauson Tree Service has the specialized equipment to fertilize your tree’s roots directly where it’s needed. Believe it or not, your lawn, as beautiful as it may be, is in direct competition with trees for the soil’s nutrients. The truth is lawns can directly absorb fertilizer, while a different method has to be applied to trees. Trees can look healthy, but it often takes the analysis and recommendations of a professional to keep them healthy and strong. There are basically three types of roots to consider. Primary roots are the ones that grow deep down into the soil and provide the anchor that holds the tree in place.

A tree’s secondary roots branch out horizontally and are the primary nutrient gathering source. Tertiary roots, the third type, are like fine hair, and are feeder roots that are able to break down the nutrients in the soil and transport them within the tree’s system.

As you can see, there are a lot of things to consider in deep root fertilization. And it’s nearly impossible for a home or property owner in Dallas to know all that’s needed to keep their trees and shrubbery healthy.

Why not let us come out and take a look at your property? We’ll give you a free estimate, at no cost to you whatsoever.

Storm Damage Cleanup Services in Dallas

Thursday, June 3, 2010 @ 01:06 PM  posted by admin

Storms can do a lot of damage to a property. While no one can ever predict the impact a storm will have, it’s the cleanup and dealing with the aftermath that becomes the real challenge. The answer is a storm cleanup plan that can help restore the landscape architecture back to its original beauty.

Of course not all storms will leave a property seriously damaged, but generally speaking, a storm strong enough to uproot trees or one approaching hurricane level will usually leave a ton of debris in its wake. Much of the damage by a storm is caused by falling trees and limbs that can bring down power lines. Fifty to 60 mph winds can take a heavy toll on the system, often requiring equipment and people who have the experience to handle emergency situations.

It’s natural after a storm for people to rush to clean up their property. Just keep in mind the typical injuries that can follow, which are often the result of people falling off roofs and ladders while attempting repairs. And then there are the potential dangers of people seriously hurting themselves with chainsaws or saws as they try to clear away fallen trees and limbs, debris and broken objects. Stress and overextending one’s self with physical labor can also lead to personal injury.

The truth is, there are a lot of things that can happen in the aftermath of a serious storm, but the one thing that can be counted on is the timely advice of professionals who are experienced with storm damage cleanup in Dallas.

The professionals at Wauson Tree Service can give you a free estimate and advise what storm damages fall within our service parameters. Having been in the business for over fifty years, we’ve seen a lot of storms come and go. And this means we can help you get back on your feet as quickly as possible.

Why stress? Give us a call today at 214-450-8720, or you can email me at Walt [at] wausontreeservice [dot] com.
