Not All Tree Companies are Alike

Beware of incorrect diagnostics, unnecessary tree removal recommendations, over pruning and incorrect pruning

  • Are you confident in the service of your trees?
  • Do you know that the person selling you work knows what they are talking about?
  • Are they trying to sell you more than you think needs to be done?
  • Do you feel comfortable that the service will do what they say and charge what they promise?
  • Are you getting a deal that seems too good to be true? Do you have it in writing?

These are all important questions to ask yourself before you agree to the work or sign the estimate. If you don’t have a good feeling about what you’re doing, then STOP.

At Central Texas Tree Care we have built a record of trust, confidence and honesty with our customers.

All aspects of tree care are important, but only certain specifics may apply to your trees. So MANY times we have seen incorrect diagnostics, unnecessary removal recommendations, over-pruning and incorrect pruning. In some cases, the homeowner knows enough to call us out before making a very costly and often irreversible mistake. But often these bad recommendations lead to catastrophic effects for the trees and the overall property value. Misdiagnosed and unethical chemical treatments can have no effect and cost thousands of dollars. “Lion-tailing” or “poodle-cutting” pruning does more harm that good.

To prevent the potential for long-term, possibly irreparable damage to your trees, I encourage you to only contact a certified arborist – whether that’s us or another reputable company – before making any decisions about your trees. They can be worth 15-20 percent of your property value and any damage done will leave its impact for years to come.

Please contact us today to come out and look at your trees. When you call us, you know you’re getting service you can trust!
