Tree Mitigation

Tree Mitigation

Residential Construction

As the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex grows and expands, an increasing amount of strain is being placed on our urban forests. Many older homes are being torn down and replaced with new, larger homes and as a result, the mature surrounding trees are being negatively affected. The ISA Certified Arborists (International Society of Arboriculture: at Personal Touch Tree Service can assist the homeowner, contractor, architect or landscape architect with any tree-related issues with home construction or renovation.

Residential construction issues to consider include:

  • soil contamination by building materials such as paint, solvents and other chemicals that can have a lasting effect on the quality of the soil;
  • soil compaction due to foot and machinery traffic;
  • soil excavation—piling dirt around a tree can damage the bark, and smother the root system.
    • By taking these issues and others into careful consideration and offering helpful solutions, the Certified Arborists at Personal Touch Tree Service can preserve your mature trees’ health, which is both visually and financially valuable to your property and often an energy saver.

      Commercial Construction

      With over 20 years in the industry, we are well versed in tree mitigation. We know that improper tree mitigation and planning can be very costly and time-consuming, so trust us to guide you through the process and avoid having to pay fines or incur construction delays.

      There are many reasons that cities have tree mitigation measures in place for commercial construction, such as:

      • to prevent net loss of tree canopy or tree type;
      • to maintain beauty of existing trees;
      • to maintain wildlife habitat;
      • to maintain species diversity;
      • and to conserve local tree genetic resources.

      Our tree mitigation services include reviewing your landscape plan, verifying tree surveys, and performing on-site landscape inspections. If you have any questions at any point in the tree mitigation process, feel free to call us at 214-328-7213. We are here to help!
