Although many homeowners plant trees and hope for the best, there's a better way to take care of your investment. Happy trees require nutrients for overall good heath. Tree roots spread out through your yard, fighting for water and space amidst the driveways, lawns, and other landscaping elements, which creates a competitive and stressful environment in which to grow. Fertilizers, soil amendments and root stimulants give trees the opportunity to thrive in our harsh West Texas conditions. Fertilizing a tree is much different than fertilizing your house plants.
After a tree is removed, we treat the stump to prevent any re-sprouting that often occurs with a well-developed root system. Some of our clients incorporate the stump into their landscape as a planter or stand for flower pots. Should you want the stump removed, we'll grind it out. From stubborn small shrub roots to massive mulberry roots, we are equipped for the task. And because cleanup is important to us at Hildebrandt Tree Tech, when the grinding is finished, you'll be left only with a mixture of soil and mulch where the stump used to be.
We employ a great team of dedicated tree care professionals. Utilizing TCIA's Tree Care Academy program, we are able to credential employees according to industry standards. Each course teaches and tests for critical skills and core knowledge that tree care employees need in order to work safely and professionally. We have team members at varying levels of this program. Training is a continual process at Hildebrandt Tree Tech!

The skilled hand of a professional can maximize the tree's natural growing style, as well as the energy restrictions in that area, and merge these with what the presentation that you envision for your property.
