Whether your trees are big or small, young or old, we have the knowledge and expertise to keep your trees looking their best.
Trimming & Pruning Young Trees
For younger trees, as well as certain small flowering and fruit trees, we concentrate on corrective pruning and thinning of live branches to improve the branch structure as well as to enhance the overall beauty of the tree. Our tree trimming and pruning services in Austin, Texas, include looking for opportunities to correct poorly attached branches, twin trunks, and other structural problems through early tree pruning in Austin.
Trimming & Pruning Mature Trees
For most mature trees in Austin, Texas, tree pruning is usually limited to the removal of dead, dying, or diseased branches in order to maintain and improve the health and aesthetic appearance of the tree. Pruning mature trees also reduces the risk from dead or weak branches, which might otherwise fall and damage persons, the tree itself, or the surrounding property.
In some situations, Sid Mourning Tree Service will provide tree trimming in Austin to thin live branches from mature trees to improve the appearance of the tree or to improve light penetration to a yard below or reduce branch weight. It is also common for us to conduct tree pruning to low branches in order to increase the clearance of a tree over walkways or buildings. To get the most out of your trees and set yourself up for the future, Sid Mourning can take care of tree pruning and tree trimming needs in Austin, Texas.

Canopy and Street/Sidewalk Raising
For your yard
Along with our tree trimming in Austin, TX, we can clear your yard, sidewalk, and property so people don’t have to duck to come to your front door. Raise it up, and give your property a properly cared for, and great looking, full canopy.
Street/Sidewalk Raising to City Recommended Levels
Minimum requirements over streets are 14 feet high to make sure those big trucks don’t completely remove your tree. Minimum requirements over a sidewalk are 12 feet for the main trunk.
Roof and Structure Clearing
Safe clearance consists of pruning trees so as to prevent damage to structures by contact with tree limbs. Where possible, live oak limbs are pruned to 3 feet from any structure, and other species will be pruned as far back as 4 feet. This allows enough space between trees and structures that, with normal growth, the procedure should not need repeating for at least three years.
We recommend removing dangerous limbs above your roof, and clearing your roof from limbs 2-6 feet back, to remove the highway for rodents and prevent damage to shingles. We can handle all this and more during our tree trimming and tree pruning services in Austin, Texas.
Tree Debris: Hauling and Removal
After we finish your tree pruning or tree trimming in Austin, TX, we haul all tree debris to an off-site location for recycling and proper disposition. If you just need trimmings hauled away from your own cuttings, we may be able to help – ask our estimator.
Tree Debris: Firewood
There is nothing like having a brisket smoked over the wood from your own tree, or having that wood keep you warm on a cold winter night.
If you want firewood, please let us know as soon as you can. Remember: wood from live trees must be allowed to dry out and season before you can use it as firewood. Minimum seasoning time is about 3 months (one season).
