West Lake Tree Care Specialists
If there is one thing that West Lake Hills is known for, it’s the beautiful scenery of the hill country and the natural rural environment that surrounds the city. We pride ourselves on the beautiful landscape which we live in and that we maintain as proud residents. The maintenance, however, can be daunting. No one should ever go through the work of tree maintenance alone—even if it’s a small project! It can be time-consuming and downright dangerous. Trees are an integral part of nature and as such should be treated with respect and professionally cared for. Active tree and shrubbery care is linked to rising property value, reducing one’s carbon footprint on the environment, and is a significant benefit to the surrounding community as a whole.

We are certified by the International Society of Arborists (ISA) which is recognized worldwide in the art and science of planting, caring for, and maintaining trees.

We are dedicated to helping maintain the landscape that has been the pride of West Lake Hills since it was founded in 1953. Call us at (512) 484-0252 today!

Tree care can be dangerous. If the foundation beneath a tree is not properly secure or if a loose branch comes crashing down anyone nearby can be in jeopardy. When inspecting one’s yard having a professionally trained eye is necessary to spot any infections that may have started to harm your tree. Due to their large size and weight, no property owner should attempt to take on a major tree project on their own.

The Gorgeous Natural Environment of Westlake
With its proximity to the Barton Creek Greenbelt, the environment of West Lake Hills is responsible for some of the most beautiful natural attractions Austin has to offer. Each yard in the West Lake area contributes to the larger ecosystem of the hill country. As such, policies need to be set in place to ensure that the quality of natural wildlife is maintained to community standards. From the West Lake Hills website, West Lake tree and vegetation guidelines in a city ordinance enacted in 2010 put the following policies in place:
- Ensure the maximum retention of natural vegetation. This guideline was adopted to ensure the preservation of the natural scenery and ecosystem quality of the city and that the erosion of topsoil is negated.
- Protection of mature and tall, significant stands of trees. Privately owned trees have an impact on the community’s overall appearance, so property owners have a responsibility to follow neighborhood-wide guidelines.
- Required removal of all certified dead brush to reduce the risk of wildfires sparking up in the city. A city inspector must confirm the brush is dead before the removal process can begin.
Hamlin Tree Care is prepared to assist with the upkeep of anyone’s yard in any facet possible. As professional arborists, it is our mission to protect and manage the life and beauty of trees and shrubbery. One of the biggest issues Austin and West Lake Hills residents are facing is the epidemic of oak wilt. Oak Wilt is a lethal fungus that disrupts the way oak trees receive water and can spread to other oaks through neighboring root systems. Mitigating the risk of oak wilt and making sure that the trees in your yard are wilt free is vital to upkeep the beautiful environment of the West Lake Hills area. If your trees haven’t been checked for diseases in a while, contact Hamlin Tree Care today to have a certified arborist take a look at your trees today!

Commonly Asked Questions Regarding Tree and Shrubbery Care
There are so many facets to tree and shrubbery care that homeowners can feel overwhelmed and outmatched. Knowing when to have your trees trimmed or the frequency of tree inspections is quintessential to have a healthy yard. Here at Hamlin Tree Care, we have a compiled a shortlist of the most commonly asked questions we get for your benefit.
Are my trees at risk of infections such as oak wilt?
Oak wilt has been a problem in the Austin area since the Austin Parks and Recreation Department started the Oak Wilt Suppression Project in 1988. It ‘s hard to assess any disease or infection your trees may be experiencing without having a trained and experienced eye that knows what signs to look out for. Having a licensed arborist inspect your yard to look for such dangerous infections is vital for the health of your landscape and surrounding community environment.
When Should I Pursue a Tree Care Specialist?
If you have trees close to your house with branches drooping low over your roof, then you have a potential hazard on your hands. Easily preventable roof damage is never fun and is usually expensive. Also, a tree that is leaning towards your house can be a headache in the future if it falls or if heavy branches or boughs break. Even if there is no immediate danger, it is still advisable to have a professional come out and inspect your yard for any infestations, diseases, or potential future hazards that may be present. Such damage can lower property value and even affect nearby trees and the community as a whole.
