Should I Have My Trees Trimmed In Spring?

Spring marks the transition from the winter cold to summer heat and along with it comes high winds, hail, and rain. If your trees aren’t properly trimmed and troublesome areas addressed it could lead to serious damage to the tree, your property, or you personally. Be on alert for trees with dead or damaged branches that could break off in our strong spring winds.

Believe it or not, there is still a LARGE AMOUNT OF DAMAGE showing up two years after the record cold we had back in February 2021. If your tree still has large amounts of dead appearing then there is a good chance that those limbs aren’t going to recover and may break off at any time. Call today for a free estimate and let us do the pruning so you can enjoy the beauty of your tree not be distracted by unsightly limbs.

Abilene Tree Removal

The Best Equipment To Do The Job

We are the only company within 200 miles with the capability to do any form of crane tree removal. However, cranes aren’t the only big gun we have. Our list of equipment also includes man lifts, shredders, stump grinders, chippers, and forestry mowers/skid loaders. We also utilize roll off dumpsters to transport loads of debris which is safer for our crews and helps jobs get done in record time. Our professional gear enables us to remove even the largest trees and limbs in hard-to-reach places or when ground cover and objects (like buildings, swimming pools, (you name it) prevent the typical “easy” methods of removal. Safety always comes first as many times we’re having to deal with overhead power lines and electrical service lines.

  • Undesirable tree removal

Summertime Is Wood Chip Season

Now is the perfect time to get wood chips delivered to spruce up your flower beds and children’s play areas among other places they really come in handy, especially after all the rain we’ve had this spring.  We only have one delivery size, it’s BIG, but we only charge $50/per Load in Abilene which helps cover the cost of fuel and driver time. For wood chips outside of Abilene call for pricing for out-of-town deliveries. You will get a 20′ x 8′ x 8′ container full. That’s 1280 cubic feet of wood chips.  Sorry, we can’t do partial shipments, we only provide one load size.

Were your trees affected by the 2021 Winter Storms?

We are still seeing a lot of damaged trees across the Abilene and West Texas areas from the February 2021 Texas Winter Storm. It may be time to take care of the problem before it gets worse and the tree begins to infect other trees around it or the tree falls and either injures someone or damages your property. Whether you have a diseased tree or a fallen tree on your property, call on Thornton’s Tree Service to handle the removal. We’re your best choice for tree care services in Abilene, Wichita Falls, San Angelo, Brownwood, Weatherford, and West Texas.
