"We Are Rooted in This Community"
McKenzie, Your Tree Service, provides experienced tree removal services as well as landscaping, fencing and exterior renovations. When southeast Louisiana experiences severe weather, storms and hurricanes, trees take the hit. Our Storm Damage and Emergency Services include professional clean-up, removal of downed trees and broken branches, and gutter cleaning. Other landscaping services include dirt spreading and sod placement. We can provide complete exterior renovations such as roofing, siding, and exterior painting. More details below.
When we remove a tree, it is cut to approximately 1 ft from ground level. Our service includes hauling away debris from the tree removal. Removing a large, dying tree can be a big expense for the homeowner. We will work with you to remove the tree in parts over time, so the cost will be manageable for your budget. It is important to note that once your tree is dead, it can create more challenges and complexities that may increase the cost of removal.
A full trim would include lifting the canopy, removing large suckers and deadwood, aerating - which allows the wind to pass through the tree - and balancing the tree while maintaining the canopy. Depending on the tree, specific concerns can be addressed such as cutting back from wires and poles, lifting branches up or cutting back from a roof, pool area or over a driveway. As a home or property owner, you should have a clear goal on what you want to achieve when having a tree trimmed.
Our landscaping and maintenance services can be tailored to your needs. We provide services such as weeding a garden, changing annuals and perennials, or shaping bushes within the garden. On a larger scale we can start by tilling the soil, adding new soil and a weed barrier, planting new plants, and mulching.
Shaping hedges can be done on a yearly basis. Hedges can be shaped to maintain privacy between neighbors, in place of a fence. As ornamental features in your garden, hedges can be kept small or they can be used to fill in large areas and kept below the windows or roof line. Keep in mind, this will require more maintenance.
Fertilization is a way of feeding your tree. The benefits of fertilizing a tree is growth, healthy appearance, and a longer life. It is important not to over-fertilize a tree because it can do more harm than good. Our tree fertilization service representatives will apply the right amount of fertilizer for beautiful and healthy trees. When you see your great-looking trees, you can feel confident that you are taking the necessary steps to keep your trees healthy.
Stump grinders mulch up the remaining tree stump which fills in the hole left by the removal of the tree and stump. Apart from being an eyesore, it is important to grind the stump to discourage insects from feeding on the remaining dead tree stump. Stump grinding does not include the roots which can be plentiful and all over the yard. Grinding all roots would harm the grass. An exception would be cypress knees. Please discuss with the representative that comes to your property to decide what is best for your situation.
Our fencing service may include the complete installation of a new fence including site preparations, pole installation, and gate and lock installation. We also accept smaller jobs which may include replacing a few boards in the area where a tree has damaged or broken the boards. Use our contact form or call us at (504) 456-1300 and we can provide an estimate.
