Signs that your tree needs pruning include dead or broken branches, excessive leaning, overgrown branches near structures, and signs of disease or pest infestation.

Fall and early spring are typically the best times to plant trees in Texas, as it allows them to establish their roots before the hot summer months. For additional information relevant to the Houston area, check out this guide on tree planting from the city of Houston.

To protect your trees during severe weather in Houston, Texas, such as hurricanes or droughts, consider regular tree maintenance, proper pruning to remove weak or dead branches, mulching to retain moisture, and installing support systems for vulnerable trees. 

Common tree care mistakes to avoid in Houston, Texas, include overwatering, improper pruning techniques, neglecting to mulch, planting trees too deeply, ignoring signs of pest infestations or diseases, and using harmful chemicals near trees. Educating yourself on proper tree care practices or consulting with a professional arborist to avoid these mistakes is essential.

If you suspect your tree is dying, it’s crucial to act promptly and contact a tree company to assess the situation and determine the cause of the decline. In humid and hot places like Houston, Texas, ignoring signs like overcrowding, infestation of rodents and insects, cracks and splits in the tree, and destructive roots that have the potential to harm your property’s foundation can be a costly mistake. 

Yes, there are several tree-friendly landscaping practices to follow in Texas, including selecting native or adapted tree species, providing adequate space for mature tree growth, avoiding planting trees too close to structures or utilities, mulching to conserve moisture and suppress weeds, and avoiding excessive use of lawn chemicals that can harm trees. Additionally, regular maintenance tasks such as proper pruning, watering, and fertilization can promote tree health and vitality.

To prevent oak wilt, avoid pruning oak trees during the active transmission period (typically February to June). Promptly remove and destroy diseased trees and avoid injuring healthy oaks, as the fungus that causes oak wilt can spread through root grafts or insect vectors.

Signs of oak wilt include wilting, browning, or discoloration of leaves, often starting at the top of the tree. Treatment may involve injecting fungicides into the tree or removing and destroying infected limbs to prevent further spread.


Yes, mulch can be beneficial for trees in Texas. Apply a layer of mulch around the base of the tree, keeping it a few inches away from the trunk. This helps retain moisture, suppress weeds, and insulate the soil, but avoid piling mulch against the trunk, as it can lead to rot and pest issues.

To improve tree health, ensure proper watering, pruning, and fertilization. Address any pest or disease issues promptly, provide adequate sunlight and space for growth, and avoid damaging activities such as compacting soil or excessive pruning.

Some native Texas trees that are drought-resistant include Texas live oak, cedar elm, Texas red oak, Mexican plum, Texas persimmon, and Texas ash. These trees have adapted to the region’s climate and soil conditions and can tolerate periods of drought.

Signs of root rot include wilting, yellowing, or browning of leaves, stunted growth, and dieback of branches. Additionally, the presence of fungal growth or a foul odor near the base of the tree may indicate root rot. A professional arborist can confirm the diagnosis and recommend appropriate treatment.

Yes, there are regulations governing tree trimming near power lines in Texas. Utility companies are responsible for maintaining clearance around power lines to prevent outages and ensure safety. Homeowners should contact their utility provider for tree trimming near power lines.

If a tree is leaning dangerously, seeking professional assistance immediately is essential. A professional tree services company or certified arborist can assess the situation and determine the best course of action, which may include pruning to rebalance the tree or removal if it poses a significant risk of falling.

In some cases, trees damaged by construction can be saved with proper care and treatment. Measures such as pruning damaged limbs, addressing soil compaction, providing adequate water and nutrients, and protecting the tree from further damage can help improve its chances of survival.

If you suspect herbicide drift is affecting your tree, immediately stop the application of herbicides in the area and contact a professional arborist for assessment. Symptoms of herbicide damage may include leaf curling, discoloration, or abnormal growth patterns. Rinse the foliage with water to remove any residual herbicide and take steps to mitigate further exposure.

Tree trimming frequency can vary depending on factors such as tree species, age, and health, but generally, it’s recommended to trim trees every 3-5 years in Houston. However, trees may require more frequent trimming if they’re fast-growing species or if there are safety concerns such as dead or overhanging branches.

The best times for tree trimming in Houston are during the dormant season in late fall or winter. Trimming during this time helps minimize stress on the tree and reduces the risk of disease transmission. However, dead or hazardous branches can be trimmed at any time of year as needed.

Many factors determine tree trimming costs, such as whether the tree is infected, the type of tree, the tree’s location, and the tree’s size. Generally speaking, you can expect to pay anywhere from $75-$1,000. The smaller the tree (typically 30 ft or under), the less expensive. Large trees (typically 30 to 60 feet) fall in the middle, and tall trees over 60 feet, such as pine trees, fall on the higher end of the spectrum.

Tree thinning frequency can vary based on factors such as tree species, growth rate, and environmental conditions. However, as a general guideline, many arborists recommend thinning trees every 3 to 5 years. Doing so can improve sunlight penetration and air circulation within the canopy, reduce wind resistance, mitigate the risk of storm damage, and promote overall tree health and vigor. 

The cost of tree thinning in Houston can vary depending on factors such as the size and condition of the tree, accessibility, and the extent of thinning required. On average, homeowners can expect to pay between $300 to $800 per tree for professional thinning services.

I had a very large dead tree to be removed and some very high branches touching my home that required trimming as a condition for buyers to purchase my property in The Woodlands. After reviewing several companies online, I decided to call Highpoint Tree Care. John met with me and the buyer and we reviewed the property with an arborist and came up with a plan to make the property look better and meet everyone’s needs. The work crew arrived on time and did great work removing the dead trees and trimming branches. They cleaned up their work area in my back and front yards, and cleaned debris from the street. I appreciate how they cut the tree stumps very close to the ground and they left the property much better than they found it and were careful not to damage anything. I am very satisfied with Highpoint Tree Care and would use them again and recommend them to a friend.
