Frequently Asked Questions
Why is my tree’s bark peeling?
Some trees, like crape myrtles, have exfoliating bark, so this is normal. For other trees, it can be a sign of a serious problem. Freeze damage, disease, or insect infestation can all cause peeling bark.
How do I know if I am watering too much/too little?
The water needs of a tree vary by species/soil type/weather conditions/and other factors, but there are some rules of thumb to follow. If the soil smells badly or has green algae visible on the surface, then it is likely too wet. This could be caused by poor drainage, or overwatering. If the tree is dropping leaves, has brown scorch marks around the leaf edges, or the leaves exhibit wilting, then it is likely too little watering.
Is my tree still alive after “the freeze?”
Many trees were killed or badly damaged by the “big freeze”. If your tree is showing signs of stress, it should be checked by our ISA Certified Arborists to help you decide the best way to proceed.
Do I need to be home for the arborist consultation?
It is best to be available for the arborist consultation so he can understand your goals and create a plan to help achieve them.
When is the best season to prune live oaks (or just oaks in general)?
The ideal time to prune live oaks (and red oaks) is between July and February if Oak Wilt is active in your area. Some oaks, such as post oaks, are very resistant and can be pruned year-round.
Which season(s) should I fertilize my trees?
With modern fertilizer technology, trees can be successfully fertilized year-round. We know roots stay active during the winter and can uptake and begin to metabolize the nutrients before the heavy spring growth comes.
What Our Clients Saying
Thank you so much for your service. Your team is spectacular!! We have dogs and the team was so thoughtful to communicate with us when they were taking lunch so that we could let the dogs out during the day. I love that the job didn’t seem rushed and that every tree and crepe myrtle was addressed individually and not just a rush job with excessive pruning. I feel that we received exceptional service.
I have no use of social media and especially no use for Google other than their email due to the fact my email was hacked on two other service providers. That being said… 5.0***** Service provided – Thinning and raising canopy of a mature Red Oak. Root nourishment of the Oak. Worked performed was highest quality. Performed earlier than stated on contract. Work was performed at the contract price. Cleanup was exceptional. I have no suggestions that would improve the services you provide.
Used TreeNewal to review health of a few trees and suggested treatment program. They also provide excellent pruning service or tree removal services ; which we used ; completely removed a bad live oak including stump grinding and pruned 3 other large trees and 3 crape myrtles. Great work and knowledge overall and will be in touch regarding tree treatment programs. They were able to work us in on short notice and had excellent communication and crews were punctual and cleaned up properly before leaving.
I Highly recommend TreeNewal for your tree-care! Jorge came to assess our red oak trees that were having problems, one nearly dead, but he assured me they had a good chance of survival with the right treatment plan. Though, he wasn’t pushy with any sales pitches, just educated me on what I could do. Turns out that one tree has leaf-spot and the others just need nutrients and better oxygen flow at the base. I wasn’t up to the task for treating all 6 trees so TreeNewal did the work. I’m so pleased with the entire experience so far. Call these professionals if you ever need tree care. They are the best!
Over the years I’ve used the TreeNewal process at my Sandlin Manor, High Point Estates Project, Estes Park Subdivision in Southlake where we commenced development with a lot of tractors and people. The trees went into some stress, and it was an amazing thing, these trees that maybe 10 years ago you would have removed or cut down; we used your process, and a year later the trees are thriving.
