Caring for your trees ensures that your landscape will look great for decades to come. Here at JRP Tree & Demolition, we have a vast knowledge of local tree species here in the Houston area, and we know how to properly care for these trees to ensure that they have a long, healthy life. If you have trees that aren’t looking their best, or if you’d like to ensure your trees remain healthy throughout their lifetimes, you can count on the JRP crew to care for your trees — just give us a call for a free estimate. You can also learn more about our certifications and the various care services that we provide — all of which are listed below.
Tree Care From Certified Arborists
Tree care is a science, and it takes education and training to learn how to properly care for trees. Here at JRP, we have arborists on staff who have received training and certification from the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA), which is an authority on tree care and preservation techniques. That means that we have all of the know-how necessary to ensure that your trees have a heightened chance of living a long, fruitful life.
Oftentimes, trees grow in soil that doesn’t have sufficient nutrients to support growth throughout the entire tree. And over time, trees can deplete enough nutrients from the soil so that they are starved of key nutrients that are vital to their survival. If you have a tree that is planted in poor soil or a tree that has used up all of the nutrients from its surroundings, then fertilization may help to ensure your tree has the stuff that it needs to thrive. We can test the soil around your tree and inject it with a fertilizer to boost its health.
When performed properly, trimming your trees will benefit the health of the tree. Trees simply grow wildly, and they can overgrow, which will cause an imbalance of nutrient and water absorption throughout the branches of the tree. This overgrowth can actually “choke” the tree, which means that it won’t have much new growth during the growing season — new growth is an indication that your tree is healthy. If you’ve noticed that your tree no longer produces new growth, you should have your tree trimmed more often to improve its health. We recommend that folks have their trees trimmed in late winter or early spring for the best results.
Tree Cabling & Bracing
If you have trees on your property that are poorly balanced, or trees that are in danger of hitting other trees or objects (e.g. your home, vehicles, power lines), then we can install cables and braces to ensure that your tree won’t become a hazard. Often, folks think that they have to trim their trees or cut them down entirely when their branches or balance becomes a hazard. While these options may be the only solution in certain cases, cabling and bracing the tree may prove adequate to make your tree safe while ensuring that it continues to grow and thrive.
Addressing Tree Issues
If your trees are suffering from any issues, we can assess the problem at hand and offer up the best possible solution to strive to save those trees. You may have any variety of issues, ranging from wilted leaves to mold growth to pests. Your trees may have even been struck by lightning. Whatever the issue, we’ll take a look and put your trees on a path to a speedy recovery. We can trim your trees, add fertilizer to the soil, and address other issues.
Your Watering Regimen
It can be difficult to determine how much water your trees need in order to grow. On one hand, if your tree isn’t receiving enough water, it won’t be able to grow, and its leaves may wilt and fall prematurely. On the other hand, your tree may be receiving too much water. When trees have too much water, they’re susceptible to have loose roots and they may suffer from mold and rot. We can assess the amount of water in your soil and how it is affecting your tree. Here in Houston, it may be problematic to have too much water in the soil due to the rain. If that’s true, we may recommend that you install a French drain or another drainage solution in order to keep water from pooling around the base of your tree.
Planting new trees is simple with JRP Tree & Demolition, and you can rest assured that your trees will have their best shot at a long, healthy life. When we plant trees, we know precisely how deeply to bury the rootball. In addition, we’re wary of nearby hazards that could prove to be problematic as your tree grows up. For instance, we’ll never plant a tree close to your house, where its branches can grow dangerously close to your abode. In addition, we won’t plant too close to other trees or power and telephone lines (or other infrastructure on your property). We strive to give your tree an excellent shot at a fruitful life, while placing your trees in locations that will look great and aid the health of your tree.
