There's a reason tree services recommend grinding a stump after a tree removal is done. Not only does stump grinding improve the appearance of your landscape, but it is important for the health of your remaining trees. The decay fungi that inhabit old tree stumps can infect other trees in your landscape. Old tree stumps could also provide a haven for insect pests or rodents and make lawn maintenance more difficult.

Houston stump grinding services will grind the stump to below ground level. The resulting wood chips can be used in other areas of your landscape and the hole can then be filled with topsoil and the area can be seeded or sodded. When tree services grind up small tree stumps it may be possible to plant a new tree in the same spot.


Tree trunk injections can be used to control a variety of insect and disease pests that attack landscape trees. The benefit of insect or disease control with tree trunk injections is that the treatment targets just the pest that is attacking the tree. Beneficial insects are not harmed with tree trunk injections because the beneficial insects are not feeding on the tree.

Insect Control with Tree Trunk Injections

Arborists are able to control a number of harmful insect pests with trunk injections including:
  • Adelgids
  • Aphids
  • Black Vine Weevils
  • Elm Leaf Beetles
  • Eucalyptus Borer
  • Japanese Beetles
  • Lacebugs
  • Leafhoppers
  • Leafminers
  • Mealybugs
  • Pine Bark Beetles
  • Pine Tip Moth
  • Psyllids
  • Royal Palm Bugs
  • Sawfly
  • Scale Insects

  • Whiteflies

Tree Disease Control with Tree Trunk Injections

Several tree diseases prevalent in the Houston area can be controlled with trunk injections. A partial list of tree diseases controllable with trunk injections includes:
  • Anthracnose
  • Beech Decline
  • Oak Wilt
  • Phytophtora
  • Pine Wilt Nematode
  • Pythium
  • Sudden Oak Death

Tree Fertilization with Tree Trunk Injections

Certain trees in the Houston area, especially Oak trees, are prone to micronutrient deficiencies. If you have yellow Oak leaves there is a good chance the tree is suffering from a micronutrient deficiency. If this condition is left untreated the Oak tree will eventually die. Some Houston tree services offer tree trunk injections with the necessary micronutrients to bring your tree back to a healthy condition. Depending on the severity of the micronutrient deficiency, one trunk injection may last for two or more years.

Reducing Tree Growth with Tree Trunk Injections

If you have a tree that is getting too tall or too wide a tree service may be able to help. Tree injection technology allows arborists to inject tree growth regulators to slow the growth of landscape trees. Originally developed for the line clearance industry, tree growth regulators have now found their place in maintaining and increasing the useful life of landscape trees. A side benefit of using tree growth regulators is that treated trees may be less prone to tree disease infection. One tree growth regulator treatment usually slows tree growth for up to three years.

The best person to consult when deciding what kind of tree to plant is a local arborist. A local arborist is familiar with the trees and shrubs that grow best in the Houston area. The arborist can advise you on which tree species are likely to require extra maintenance due to insect or disease pests and which tree species are relatively pest free. Picking the right location to plant a tree is an important consideration. A local arborist can let you know if the species of tree you want to plant will outgrow the place you want to plant it.
