Brents Tree Service’s experienced crews of insured arborists tend to Austin-area arboreal life with pruning, branch clearing, and other tree-care services. A free in-person consultation precedes each job, the cost of which can vary based on the difficulty of the job, the size of the tree, and the number of rings the tree wears. Four-person teams tote chippers, chipper trucks, and other essential equipment to clear branches after storms, prune unhealthy limbs from trees, and remove troubled trees altogether. Tree owners can fortify their leafy charges with eco-friendly organic fertilizer that feeds roots directly, or take advantage of cabling and bracing services that support branch and trunk structure. After each job, crews clean up debris and haul it away to prevent ghost branches from hurling themselves back and forth across yards in an effort to torture the dog.
The team at Texas Lawn Services will sweep away the dead leaves, twigs, and brambles that are hiding your ribald azaleas from cute horticulturalists. They'll lop off the tree branches that snatch small children ($80–$300), chase the bison from your shoulder-high hedges, and tame any feral lawn that's started snacking on neighborhood cats (mowing averages $40). They'll also inspect your sprinkler system ($70), install your favorite plants, mulch the heck out of everything not rooted down, and test your slip-n-slide before its annual summertime unveiling.
