The arboreal handlers of Brents Tree Service discipline unruly yard life with trimming, removal, and cleanup services for trees of all sizes. After setting up an appointment, a representative will assess the needs of each project, quoting the total price of services required and some choice phrases from The Giving Tree. Hearty four-man crews appear out of morning mists, tackling tasks that last from one–six hours in length depending on the amount of flora trimming needed with heavy-duty equipment and wood chipper in tow. Brents Tree Service covers specialty and emergency projects as well, such as removal of storm-damaged flora, mistletoe, or persistent ball moss. After raising canopy levels or removing lifeless limbs, the green-thumbed crews meticulously hunt debris great and small, grinding it up and hauling it away to add to their wood-chip collection. Before departure, if owners are at home the foreman walks them through their made-over yard to ensure service satisfaction.
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.
