Emergency Tree Removal

We’ve had some pretty strong weather blow through our state. Heavy thunderstorms and tornadoes can leave your yard scattered with fallen branches, leaves, and worst of all, damaged trees that pose a liability to your home.

No matter how bad the damage is, we will work to find a solution for you. Whether it be crane-assisted tree removal or extensive planning and rigging, you want to work with someone with skill and experience.

Fly-by-night companies simply don’t have the experience or training to handle storm work so be careful when selecting a tree service and do your research.

No matter how impossible the task seems at the time the dedicated crew at Leatherface Tree Service will help take the horror out of your trees!

Stump Grinding

Nothing screams “home” for unwanted insects and pests like an old stump. Not only can these unsightly features of your yard transmit tree diseases to your remaining trees, but they also retain moisture, and can create a trip hazard if left intact.

Our stump grinding services have minimal impact on your yard and leave you without the threat of an old stump tripping up the fun.

Cabling and Bracing

When installed by a certified arborist, cabling and bracing can be an effective alternative to tree removal. Trees with weak spots pose a danger to your property. Unsupported branches can easily break and damage a rooftop, or worse, injure a member of your family.

Our cabling services use high strength cable to support weak branch unions and dangerous crotches in your trees. Get in touch with our arborists to determine if cabling and bracing is the right service for your trees.

Tree Aeration

The roots bring large amounts of water and nutrients stored in the soil from the ground to the trees canopy. Often in Texas, the clay soil gets compacted or built up around the root collar from construction or landscaping. This causes the phloem to suffocate by reducing the availability of water and nutrients vital to the tree.

Construction Damage Mitigation

When a construction crew runs through your property, the soil is constantly shifted and can easily become compacted. This compacted clay soil can build up around the root of your tree and drastically reduce its access to water and essential nutrients.

To resolve this issue, our construction damage mitigation services use mulch whenever practical, and in extreme cases an air-spade that loosens the soil without causing the damage to the small roots a shovel would.

We also help you repair trees that have been damaged by construction equipment. Jagged trees and loosened branches present a hazard to your yard. Our arborists will quickly find signs of distress and come up with a solution that both protects the health of your trees and maintains the integrity of your landscape.

Pest and Disease Control

Regularly scheduled tree inspections are essential to stopping pest infestations before they cause irreparable damage. Leatherface Tree Service uses integrated pest management when dealing with pests. This strategy takes into consideration all aspects of the health of the tree and promotes proper plant growth.

Leatherface Tree Service uses revolutionary Arborjet® technology to inject a wide variety of chemicals into the phloem of the tree, preventing chemical exposure to surrounding people and the environment. Our disease control method involves no spray drift or surface runoff to worry about, giving you peace of mind while your trees bounce back.
