Las Vegas Mesquite Tree Trimming Cost
Like palm trees, mesquite trees are widely spread throughout the Las Vegas Valley, but no worries as the Sin City is also home to the world’s best tree care companies to address every mesquite tree issue.
Mesquite trees belong to the legume family and among the most common small tree of the desert. Like other legumes, the mesquite tree is also known to help restore nitrogen to the soil.
It comes in three species: the screwbean mesquite, honey mesquite, and the velvet mesquite. One variety of the mesquite tree has a yellowish wood while another kind resembles a mahogany with its deep red hue that shines when polished. While it is good for furniture purposes, the mesquite tree is also a good source for firewood.
The screwbean mesquite and the velvet mesquite share a lot in common, in terms of characteristics. The screwbean could grow to as tall as 10 to 15 feet, but the honey and velvet mesquite could grow to as high as 60 feet. The mesquite tree has thorns in its smaller branches, its sheds leaves in winter and blooms back during spring and summer. The mesquite blooms are also known as ‘catskins.’
Known as a desert tree, the mesquite requires low maintenance and not much of water. Its leaves provide ample shade that of late mesquite trees have found their way to xeriscaped gardens and parks. These trees also bear beans and blooms and its branches are commonly used by hummingbirds as nesting sites.
MESQUITE TREE TRIMMING
Mesquite trees are known to grow so fast even when left alone with no regular water provision and because of that, its leaves have to be trimmed every year because if not, it will grow so big and might fall over when its roots can no longer keep it in place.
It requires regular pruning and half of its branches removed so it will not grow so big and just die out.
Trimming and pruning are a must to keep a mesquite tree well balanced and have lesser risk of falling over because its roots usually grow very close above ground and may become unstable when the tree’s growth is not kept at bay.
The cost for tree trimming could range between $75 and $1000 depending on the size of the tree. Rates could go higher for trees with problems such as diseases, infestation, and other potential hazards. The location of the tree is also a factor in determining the cost of tree trimming.
Apart from trimming and pruning, mesquite trees are at times removed. The removal of mesquite trees can be done through various methods such as dozing, chaining, shredding, root plowing, or roller chopping.
The tree removal process could minimize the mesquite tree’s density in the area. But then again, even if removed, a mesquite tree has the ability to re-sprout from their base and once again become denser and the process of trimming and pruning happen all over again like a vicious cycle.
