Tree Removal & Stump Grinding
When trees are nearing the end of their life or are infected with disease, they usually weaken or rot, making tree removal a necessity. When trees die, they are not able to support themselves making them a hazard. This opens you up to liability for you and your property.
At Urban Soil, our experienced and certified arborists do everything possible to save a tree, although we recognize this is not always possible. The tree removal process can be dangerous, and we believe it’s best to have professional assistance. We use industry best practices and top of the line equipment to remove your trees safely and efficiently.
Once a tree is removed, we recycle the yard waste to reduce landfills and eliminate burn pollution keeping Texas beautiful. Our process isn’t only good for our neighborhoods, it also helps us to manufacture sustainable, quality soils, compost and mulches for all property owners.
Why Remove trees?
Tree removal goes beyond just adding to the aesthetics of a property. It’s also needed to keep people and structures safe.
Common benefits of tree removal:
- Preventing infiltration of pipes and sewers, damage to the house foundation or sidewalks.
- Helps to prevent dead tree branches from falling as they become weak resulting in damaged property or other landscape.
- Reduces risks of damaging power lines during weather like wind or ice storms
- Mitigate the spread of disease from infected trees
Ball Moss Removal
Ball Moss (or tillandsia recurvata) is a small epiphyte usually found on the limbs of oak trees. It is native to Texas and is prevalent in Southwest Texas. It is commonly thought to be a parasite and harmful to the tree, but is neither. Instead, it uses its host as structural support. Ball moss seeds are spread by wind and grow in places where they can find a horizontal surface to attach. It doesn’t damage the tree, it absorbs the water and nutrients from the environment. Ball moss is usually discovered in autumn when the leaves begin to fall, and the branches are exposed. Ball moss thrives in low light, high humidity, and with little airflow. As trees grow, their lower limbs often die due to lack of light, which provides for an ideal environment for ball moss.
While the moss is harmless, trees that are heavily infested with ball moss may be deprived of light which can make it them more susceptible to insect damage and/or disease.
