If you are considering a tree purchase, planting, or stump removal, you probably have questions. Below you will find answers to some of the most common tree installation questions that we receive. If your question is not answered here, we encourage you to get in touch with us right away for assistance.

Q: What are the benefits of buying a tree?
A: Aside from their beauty, trees have many benefits. They provide shade in the hot Texas sun, boost your property's curb appeal and overall value, and, in some instances, can lower utility bills by keeping the home cooler in the shade.

Q: What factors should be considered before I plant a tree?
A: Planting a new tree is much more than just digging a hole and turning on the water hose, and there are many factors you should consider before choosing a location for your tree. Before planting, you should consider the size of the planting area, the location of sidewalks and driveways, and the presence of overhead and underground utilities.

Q: What are the best trees for the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex?
A: The best trees for the area are generally live oak, red oak, Chinese pistachio, cedar elm, burr oak, and bald cypress. These trees adapt well to the alkaline soils of Northern Texas. Of course, there are other factors to consider, like whether acorns or leaves will bother you, and which type of soil you have. Our experts can come to your location and tell you if your soil is clay, rocky, well-drained, or wet.

Q: What does the price of the tree include?
For one simple, low rate, you get the tree, full installation, and our one-year warranty (according to terms). Sales tax is not included in our prices, and some tools and services require additional charges.

Q: What is considered an additional charge?
Though a unique situation can always present itself, additional charges are most commonly applied to the following tools and services:

• Stump Removal
• Crane/Large Equipment
• Transplanting/Removing Existing Plants
• Excessive Laying of Plywood for Long Distances
• Fence Removal
• Re-Routing of Utility/Irrigation Lines
• Jack Hammering (When Rocks Are Uncovered)
