Pruning for Shape and Health

At Tree Care Inc., pruning is a fine art. Depending on the condition of your trees, we may recommend several types of trimming or thinning.

Canopy trimming is the selective removal of dead, dying, diseased or weak branches and sucker growth. Thinning the canopy is especially beneficial during hurricane season. It improves a tree’s health and structure by allowing more light to penetrate, improving air circulation and reducing the weight of selected branches.

It is also a good idea to uplift skirt limbs, removing lower branches to provide clearance and maintain a tree’s natural shape.

If your trees have been damaged by storms they will probably also benefit canopy balancing, which improves their structure and appearance.

Tree Removal

We understand that our clients’ property is valuable. Our expert crews are experienced with the “block and tackle” method, which enables us to remove trees without damaging nearby flower beds, fences and homes.

Stump Grinding

A cut tree isn’t completely removed until its base and central root area are gone. We grind stumps of newly removed trees and old existing stumps as well to enable replanting or landscape redesign.

Tree Installation

We can help you add new trees to your landscape, creating energy-saving shade and vertical interest, or replace trees lost to drought or storms.

Tree Care, Inc. sources quality specimens from several excellent nurseries in the Houston area. We install all types of trees, from many varieties of Oaks and other shade trees to ornamentals and fruit-bearing trees, in sizes ranging from 15-gallon up to 300-gallon or 60-inch boxes.

Fertilizing for Healthy Trees

To help maintain the vitality of your trees year-round, Tree Care, Inc. provides a program of two feedings during the optimal seasons, spring and fall.

Spring feeding encourages maximum growth and benefits maturing leaves, bringing a flush look and rich, green color.

Fall feeding strengthens the root system, so trees are better able to withstand heat and drought.

We also recommend inoculating trees with mycorrhizae, a symbiotic natural spore that attaches to the roots. Mycorrhizae encourage more fibers to develop in the root zone, improving a tree’s ability to absorb nutrients and water.

Service Area

Memorial Area, Hunters Creek Village, Bunker Hill, Hedwig Village, Piney Point Village, River Oaks, Tanglewood, West University Place, Southside Place, The Heights, Bellaire, Meyerland, and Spring Branch.

We also perform tree services for ranches and residential in Austin, Fayette and Washington counties.

Do you do landscaping?

We focus on trees, which are an important aspect of landscaping, but we do not provide general landscaping services. We are happy to offer recommendations for a landscaper suited to your needs.

When is the best time of the year to trim Crepe Myrtles?

Pruning from mid-February through mid-March, after the danger of hard freezes is usually best and produces maximum summer blooms.

What is the white webbing on my tree’s trunk and limbs?

A harmless, beneficial insect called barklice make the webbing as they eat fungi, algae, dead bark and other organic materials. They are actually cleansing the tree. When they run their course in a couple of weeks, the webbing will disappear.
