Reversion of Grafted Trees

Ever planted a Japanese maple or fruit tree that started out as on variety…only to turn into another variety with completely different foliage or flower? Many trees and landscape plants are grafted. That means one variety with desirable foliage or fruiting characteristics is attached to the root stock of another variety that is perhaps more disease resistant or more tolerant of heavy soils.

Why aerate soil around trees with an air spade?

In our heavy clay soils here in North Texas, soil compaction is a big problem for our landscape plantings and trees. Soil can build up around the base of your trees, covering the root flares. This can lead to problems with decay around the base of your tree. Trees with buried root flares are also more susceptible to pests and diseases due to overall stress. Soil around the base of the tree tends to hide girdling roots that are very damaging to your trees and can often lead to their death.

As temperatures begin to rise in late January through February, your Live Oaks can begin to look sickly or stressed. Leaves begin to yellow and may have brown or black blotches. They will often discolor very quickly and begin to drop en masse.

Removal of a 100 Year Old Red Oak

As our company name indicates, our first goal with any tree is to preserve it by improving it's overall health and vigor. But sometimes, we simply have to remove a tree for the safety of all involved. Trees are living things; they live and then they eventually die. They are not permanent fixtures. So while a 100 year old red oak may be historic, it may also be in serious decline. This was the case with just such a tree we recently had to take down in the History Swiss Avenue Distiric.
