Call The Round Rock Tree Professionals of Best Tree Care Today!

Our company serves both residential and commercial customers in the Central Texas Region. Though we don’t plant topiaries, we do help maintain the health of your saplings, hardwoods, softwoods, and shrubs and will gladly teach you the finer points of care for them.

For example, there are right and wrong ways to prune large oaks and shrubs. A branch that’s trimmed at the wrong angle might never again put forth leaves or blossoms and might even be subject to rot and disease because it doesn’t shed precipitation properly.

Dull shears can merely crush a branch and make it vulnerable to disease. We at Round Rock Arbor Service always know to keep our instruments, be they by-pass loppers, chainsaws, or grinders, in top shape.

What Plant To Grow Where

Even before construction, we can give our customers tips on what shade topiaries are best for the Austin climate and the soil on their property. Austin is in Hardiness Zone 8 and has a humid, subtropical climate. This means it has hot summers, mild winters, and a lot of rain, with the exception of drought years. This is excellent for a wide variety of trees, but not all of them! A larch would probably not do well in Austin. Fruit-producing canopies like apples and apricots need a period of winter dormancy and would find the climate difficult.

Winter is a difficult time for trees. A dormant tree still needs to be protected (winterized) to remain healthy and free from diseases and insects. The bad news is winter weather encourages destructive pests to snuggle in and wait for spring to revive their destructive lifecycles. Small investments in your time can pay off big come spring time. According to Steve Nix of About.com. Citing from:  Winterize Your Trees

Add bark mulch around plant bases to reduce harsh winter weather damage and reinforce soil insulation covering shallow roots and root balls. This is also the best time to prune dead or unwanted limbs and spray the ends with pruning dressing to prevent the spread of disease.

Measuring from the soil surface, your mulch should be no more than 3-5 inches thick. Before applying a fresh layer in the spring, remove some or all of the mulch from the previous year and add it to your compost pile. Says Gardeners.com.

Depending on the variety, any tree or shrub may have different soil requirements. Some trees and shrubs prefer acid soil. Some like their soil dry, while others prefer moist, loamy soil. Our professionals can also install a drip irrigation system to ensure they get the slow, thorough soaking that’s best for most trees.
