Dallas Tree Hazard Assessment

Sunday, July 17, 2011 @ 02:07 PM  posted by admin

Home and property owners everywhere are fortunate to enjoy the natural beauty that trees can bestow upon a landscape. Tress like oaks, birch, maple, pine and many others add aesthetic appeal and other amenities such as shading our homes and properties and providing a home to nesting birds and other animals. Trees also add value by protecting homes from rainstorms, wind, snow and other potentially harmful elements of nature.

Unfortunately, nature happens! Huge thunderstorms accompanied by powerful winds and rain can create serious damage to your property’s trees. However, before you grab your chain saw and head out to remove toppled trees or broken branches, take a moment to consider if it’s a job that you can handle.

Get a Tree Hazard Assessment from the Pros

Professional arborists are qualified to handle just about any tree problems that exist, including removing decaying or diseased trees, tree trimming, stump removal, crown raising, crown reduction, cabling, installing root barriers, lot clearing and more. You’ll get solid advice about the trees on your property and whether an assessment indicates possible tree hazards.

Hazardous trees, if left unattended, may result in personal injury to people and animals. In addition to possible property damage costs, hazardous trees could lead to a lawsuit if anyone is injured while on your property. Having a professional tree services company, like Wauson Tree Service, can give you a tree hazard assessment resulting in peace of mind. We may also help you avoid unseen liability risks.

A tree hazard assessment may reveal the following:

  • Trees in Poor Form – On occasion, trees will experience unnatural growth conditions or sustain damage resulting from storms or high winds.
  • Dead Wood – Dead tree branches or limbs pose the threat of breaking at any time and causing serious injury.
  • Split or Weak Branch Unions – Weak branch unions occur when branches fail to strongly attach to a tree. Poor structural strength is usually the result and creates the potential hazard of a limb or branch breaking free and inflicting injury.
  • Damaged or Weak Root Problems – Trees are anchored to the soil by their roots, and can easily fall over in a severe windstorm or from the weight of the tree itself.
  • Cankers – A canker occurs when a patch of bark is missing, which may indicate disease or a serious wound. Left unattended, disease can spread throughout the tree.

Dallas City Code Compliance and Your Property

Thursday, October 7, 2010 @ 08:10 PM  posted by admin

A city’s code compliance policies, and certainly those of Dallas, are enacted for the benefit of everyone. Code compliance laws are enacted and enforced to make sure the level of public safety is enhanced and that the city benefits from the resulting aesthetic value.

Dallas’s City Code Compliance division is responsible for enforcing numerous ordinances related to zoning, housing, litter, weed control, parking and animal control.

The following is a partial list of areas that Dallas Code Compliance covers:

• Bulk trash
• Litter or high grass and weeds
• Obstructions
• Graffiti
• Junked motor vehicles on a property
• Substandard structures
• Open or vacant structures
• and more

As you can imagine, Dallas is kept quite busy enforcing its compliance codes. And for the property owner, life can become a challenge when litter and obstructions create unsafe conditions. While a property owner can’t control Mother Nature, he or she is still responsible for any damage caused. Storms, high winds and flash floods can leave a lot of damage in the wake. When this happens, the search for a reputable lot clearing service begins.

We understand the frustrations and challenges people go through when emergencies arise. But those are the times when a cool mind and reason should take over. While many people choose to go it alone and attempt to clear their properties based on an assumption of what they believe the city’s code compliance laws to be, others choose to call expert arborists who have a great deal of experience in offering tree and lot clearing services with respect to those laws.

Should You Contract for Tree Services?

Wednesday, September 29, 2010 @ 08:09 PM  posted by admin


Trees planted aren’t just for today; they’re also for the future. Trees need maintenance, but proper maintenance. You just can’t plant trees and let them go. A decision to contract for tree services is one of the best ways to insure the trees on your property will maintain a long and healthy life.

It takes a professional arborist, someone completely knowledgeable, trained and specially equipped, to know what it takes to maintain the trees on a property. These folks understand the essential value of trees, which provide numerous aesthetic, social, environmental, and economical benefits.

Healthy trees can help provide the following:

• An increase in property value–– Trees that are well cared for can actually add value to a property by 5-20%.
• Reduction of cooling costs–– Trees provide free shade and can help to significantly reduce the cost of keeping your property cool during summer months.
• Inexpensive climate control–– Healthy trees can help moderate the effects of the sun, rain, and wind.
• Air filtration–– You may not be aware of it, but the trees on your property are constantly absorbing harmful gases in the air and filtering other airborne pollutants.
• Needed privacy–– Everyone needs privacy along with the beautiful scenery that trees can provide.

As you can see, contracting for tree services is a solid investment that can keep your property looking good and your trees healthy for years to come.

However, contracting for a tree service should be a careful process. The best companies will be bonded along with the proper licenses and insurance. The arborists who service your property should also be properly trained. Even then, your job is to follow-up to make sure they’re legitimate.

Wauson Tree Service has been in business for over 50 years, serving the residents of Dallas and surrounding areas with distinction. We do it all; tree trimming, stump removal, tree pruning, tree removal, and much more. We’ll also give you a free estimate on what tree services we think would benefit your property.

Find a Dallas Lot Clearing Service You Can Depend On

Wednesday, September 15, 2010 @ 08:09 PM  posted by admin

The need for lot clearing may not be obvious at first, but if you travel during the year or if you’re a recent victim of storm damage, you may need lot clearing services, such as those offered at Wauson Tree Service.

Don’t risk injury. If you’re looking to find a lot clearing service you can depend on, call the experts.

Deep Root Fertilization – Wauson Tree Service in Dallas Delivers

Wednesday, September 8, 2010 @ 08:09 PM  posted by admin

Trees in any environment will benefit when roots are properly fertilized. And trees in urban settings are especially prone to the neglect of their root systems because of pavement, pipes, and irrigation systems that obstruct. Without nutrients in the soil getting down to the root level, trees and shrubs may never attain their full growth and aesthetic potential.

It’s through the soil that trees are fertilized and it takes an expert to determine the customized fertilizer treatments the trees on your property will require. However, not just any “tree guy or gal” can be called on to provide deep root fertilization services.

For best results, deep root fertilization treatments should be planned on a yearly service rotation. The goal is to prevent root damage before it occurs. If there are already signs of deep root damage, soil compaction, or other tree or shrubbery health problems, an increase in the frequency of treatments is highly recommended. Otherwise, your trees and plant growth will suffer, and may eventually die.

Here are several benefits of deep root fertilization:

• Soil conditions around the root are improved
• Water is absorbed by tree roots at a greater rate
• Runoff and erosion are significantly decreased

Our professional and certified arborists are skilled at providing most every conceivable tree service, and along with deep root fertilization, we provide tree removal, stump grinding, and cabling services. We also provide storm damage and lot cleaning services.

Family owned with over a half a century of expertise, you can count on Wauson Tree Service to get the job done. The experts at Wauson Tree Service can give you a free estimate and advice with confidence. We can also advise what your next step should be.

We never subcontract the job out, and our prices are tough to beat. Don’t hesitate to give us a call today at 214-450-8720 or email us at walt {a} waustontreeservice {dot} com.

What’s So Special About an Arborist?

Wednesday, August 25, 2010 @ 12:08 PM  posted by admin

There are lot of special things about an arborist. For starters, he or she can determine, with respect to the appearance and safety of your trees, the type and amount of pruning necessary to help maintain or improve their health.

Recommendations can include the following actions.

Pruning – Tree pruning takes into consideration a lot of things. Tree branches that rub against each other may need removing. Branches or limbs that interfere with wires, roofs, gutters, or that obstruct streets and sidewalks are a hazard. Diseased or limbs infected with insects can weaken and break at any time. These conditions could be an accident waiting to happen!

Tree or Stump Removal – An arborist can determine if any trees on your property need removing. They have the tools, equipment and skills necessary to take on the job. Tree removal is usually recommended if a tree is considered hazardous, dead or dying, causing an obstruction, or needs to be replaced by a more suitable tree.

Emergency Tree Care – Storms and high winds can do a lot of damage to trees on a property. And damaged trees can fall on other trees, homes, other structures and vehicles. An arborist can determine what needs to be done and go about the job in a completely safe manner.

Other Services – Arborists are able to provide other services, which include plant health care, preventative tree maintenance, cabling and spraying to control and prevent insect and disease problems.

Select the Right Arborist for the Job

Make sure the arborist you choose has the right credentials and the skills to cover all aspects of tree care. All the necessary permits and licenses should be up to date and ready for your inspection. Don’t be afraid to check references either. Why? Because tree care is a long-term investment; it’s like buying a new car after having first taken it for a test drive.

Don’t feel that it’s necessary to take the first bid that comes your way. If you know the company and you’re satisfied with its practices, feel free to go ahead and schedule work.

Be on the lookout for door-to- door sales people offering a bargain for tree maintenance. Most reputable and legitimate companies are too busy to solicit business in this manner. And don’t be afraid to ask questions. The professional arborists at Wauson Tree Service are here to help.

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 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!
