What started out as a request to assist one of our Atlanta area landscape maintenance customers has grown into a diverse department that performs multiple tasks. With the motto of never telling the customer "no," we performed a bushhog job for a client to help them out. This one time project turned into a routine mowing that we are still performing 12 years later.
Some of the services that our Vegetation Department provides:
- Bushhog work- We have several sizes of machines, ranging from 4' up to 15' bushhogs, to handle any size property or terrain. Our tractors are equipped with cabs to allow for long productive days to quickly complete any task.
- Forestry Mower- This machine makes quick work out of unwanted vegetation including wild privet and small sapplings. We can thin forested areas without disturbing desirable trees and providing an environmentally friendly mulch across the forest floor.
- Kudzu Sprays- When dealing with a form of ground cover that can grow as much as one foot per day, it requires experience and knowledge to properly handle it. Our experts have specially outfitted trucks, with dedicated tanks to allow for spraying of industry approved herbicides, to quickly handle your kudzu problems. In most cases it is suggested to commit to a multi-year program to properly control this agressive growth plant.
- Retention Pond Cleanout- We are not sure how it happened, but over the last 12 years Downey Trees, Inc. has became a leader in retention pond clean outs. With specialized equipment including cranes, boats, Brush Blazer, and a multitude of hand held equipment, we perform many pond clean outs in greater Atlanta and Destin, FL per year. Working closely with several of the largest Metro Atlanta cities' Environmental Engineers, we have became experts in bringing overgrown retention ponds back to their proper condition. From routine mowing and tree removal, to full blown reconstruction and silt removal, our team of experts can solve your problems.

No damage was done to the existing trees and a beneficial layer of mulch was left to further enhance the growing conditions of the existing trees.
