Root Aeration

With rivers up in south Louisiana and the water table maxed out, water is not draining off like it should. It's amazing how much ground water in Baton Rouge seeps into aquifers. Only surface water that initially runs off goes into the drains/creeks/bayous and eventually to Amite River. A large percentage of what doesn't evaporate or immediately drain off simply seeps into the aquifers which are EVERYWHERE. In our area, we don't get much evaporation this time of year.

90% of the problems with trees, especially mature live oaks start in the root system. 75% of THOSE problems stem from compacted root systems. How often do you see hardpan* under live oaks? Obviously, not healthy for roots. 

SOIL COMPACTION KILLS TREES!

With tools called Air-spades, Louisiana Tree Service uses compressed air at high pressures to move soil around without affecting any the sensitive root system. 

We mix the soil with nutrient rich organic mulch that allows oxygen and water much easier access to the root systems. 

Louisiana live oaks and other native trees begin to thrive when allowed to grow through the "looser"soil."

Thanks for being a fellow tree -lover, and all the best in 2016!

*In soil science, agriculture and gardening, hardpan or ouklip is a general term for a dense layer of soil, usually found below the uppermost topsoil layer. There are different types of hardpan, all sharing the general characteristic of being a distinct soil layer that is largely impervious to water.

Get Prepared for Hurricane Season

Hurricane season is here. Louisiana Tree Service is dedicated to your safety. Our experts are knowledgeable about how to keep you, your family and your belongings out of harms way.

Our tree experts will assess your site and determine if any course of action is necessary. We understand that paying to have a few trees removed isn’t in your budget, but neither is that homeowner’s insurance premium if one of those green giants didn’t make it through tomorrow night’s storm. With the latter situation, there’s the headache, the unexpected mess and the hassle of filing a claim, you get the picture. The bottom line is you want to control your trees before they get out of control.

Louisiana Tree Service can perform a hazard assessment on your trees and property, identifying threats. The most important time to do one is before a storm. It is important for you to recognize when action needs to be taken. If you live in the Metro Baton Rouge area give Louisiana Tree Service a call. We offer 24-hour emergency service and a highly trained crew.

Baton Rouge Tree Damage

We had some strong winds hit the Baton Rouge area today and cause some serious tree damage. We are working to remove fallen trees in the area. If you have a storm damage emergency, call or text me at (225)270-0102. I am checking my messages every thirty minutes, so a text message may be best.

We are one of the few fully licensed and insured tree service companies in the area. Our business has been around for decades and we’ve dealt with it all. We can help you with this.

Care must be taken when removing storm damaged trees. Digging out your chainsaw from the garage may not be the best idea. Serious injury can occur to yourself. You can also do more harm than good to your house and to the trees themselves.

Safety is an number one concern for us. We follow strict practices to prevent damage and injuries. We have boom trucks to remove damage located high off the ground. We carefully bring the damaged limbs down, piece by piece if necessary.

The average homeowner may think you can just cut the tree branch and it will be fine. Pressure can build up on the branches and cause them to twist, kick, or swing in unpredictable ways. This happens faster than you can react. A sudden wind gust can change also change things in a second.

We take care to protect your house and your yard from further damage. We have YEARS of experience in the Baton Rouge area. Give us a call and we will provide a free estimate for the repair work.

Spring Cleaning

It’s that time of the year again. The birds are chirping and temps are warming up. Now is a great time to have us come out and check the trees and structures on our property. It’s best to trim dead and weak limbs before they fall and become a problem during storm season. We offer competitive prices for tree care services and our work comes highly rated. We will come out and evaluate the trees on your property. We will cable limbs that need to be cabled and most importantly, trim the dead and unwanted limbs away from power lines, structures and other areas that could potentially pose a threat during a storm.
