Etter Tree Care was established in San Antonio by Edward Etter in January 1976 as Tree Maintenance Services. Mr. Etter began the tree care business in response to the growing demand for professional tree care in and around the San Antonio metroplex. In June of 1976, Ed was hired as a city arborist, overseeing municipalities such as the San Antonio River, public golf courses, and parks. After three months of working for the city, he decided to return to his private tree care business. From August of 1976 through 1995, Ed focused on developing his services and expanding his customer base.
PRUNING, when properly performed, is beneficial and can reduce the risk of stem and branch failure; provide clearance for structures, vehicles, and pedestrians; improve health and appearance; and improve views. Improper pruning techniques are harmful for a tree's health, vigor, stability, and appearance. A tree that is not pruned, or left natural, can develop low limbs, co-dominant stems, defects such as included bark, and accumulation of dead branches. Before pruning, determine the reason and objectives that should result.
Whether in our urban forest or in your home's backyard, ETC's full service Tree Care company can help preserve and improve your green canopy. Our International Society of Arboriculture certified arborists will help you decide the best plan for your treasured trees. They will provide cost estimates for immediate services such as pruning to clear your roof, remove low limbs for street and drive clearance, and general pruning for tree health. Then will stick with you to insure your trees receive the care they need to thrive.
