Cornelius Contracting Handles All your Tree-Related Needs

By Elisha Neubauer

When it comes to offering tree related services in the New Braunfels area, Cornelius Contracting seems to have it in the bag. If it has to do with a tree, you can bet they handle it. From tree care and lot clearing to raising canopies and clearing underbrush- they do it all!

"We are probably most known for removing large, dangerous, and difficult trees," Scott Cornelius, owner of Cornelius Contracting, tells us. "We also do a lot of trimming, shaping, and demossing." Other tree care services include tree trimming, removal, stump grinding, dead branch removal, as well as dangerous trees and large Oak cleanouts. When discussing tree care, Cornelius urges consumers to be cautious, smart, and safe. He reminds us that tree care, regardless of how simple it may look, can be a dangerous event. "Tree care can be dangerous," he states. "It is important to hire a professional when dealing with a dead or obtrusive tree because they should have the experience, equipment, manpower, and the Insurance to make the customer feel comfortable."

For customers who are kicking off a building project or just cleaning up a property, Cornelius Contracting offers a range of land clearing solutions, such as tree removal, undergrowth removal, bush and shrub removal, stump grinding, debris removal, and burning or chipping on site. "Whether you need trees removed from your property or years of underbrush removed from your yard, our team of hard working professionals will arrive on time, finish on schedule, and most importantly within budget," details Cornelius.

Cornelius Contracting also offers custom built wooden mantles, quality handmade signs, and a full service sawmill. Their sawmill offers customized cutting of specialty Texas hardwoods as well as a selection of standards- such as oak, walnut, and maples. Handcrafted, routed signs are a unique gift or addition to any household or business and can be created in any size and cut. Tailored mantle pieces can also be created to match any specifications in a variety of woods.

If you're in the market for firewood, Cornelius Contracting has you covered there, too. They stock a large quantity of mesquite, oak, pecan, hickory, and other local hardwoods at all times, so regardless of the amount that you are in need of, they can handle your order. When it comes to firewood, Cornelius left us with a few little tips.

"Shop early," he says. "We are trying to supply an ever increasing population with an ever decreasing supply of wood. Tips on storing firewood would be to keep it up off of the ground, and covered from the rain, but let air get to the sides. As far as cutting it yourself, just be careful."
