Great job they removed a big tree stump on our property with no problem and at a better price than the others guys wanted to charge us. Driscoll Tree Service team was on time and had the right equipment and got right to work.

I was very impressed with how quickly and professionally they worked. They were in and out in an afternoon. They had to remove a giant Red Oak, and did so with great skill and speed. Their price is very affordable and beats out most of the competition around. I highly recommend Driscoll Tree Service. We will use them again for all of our future tree removal needs! Seriously, give them a call. They are awesome!

3 Types of Tree Flowers

There’s nothing more spectacular than the fantastic spectrum of colors as different trees bloom. Whether you appreciate the distinct scent of blooming pine cones or despise the memory of stepping on mushy fruits, trees don’t produce these things to annoy us. This is the backbone of creating a new generation of trees. The goal of reproduction is the same in animals and plants, but the method is different.

At Driscoll Tree Service, understanding trees’ reproductive process helps provide better care based on the season. It also helps our tree service technicians predict which trees shed more pollen and produce fruit to ensure you plant the right tree for your needs. The last thing you want is a tree that sheds pollen profusely, and you are allergic. Our tree care company can ensure your trees are in tip-top condition throughout the year.

What is a Flower?

secondary

A flower is the reproductive organ of a plant, containing different parts that help it serve this purpose better. There are four main parts of a flower that you should know: sepals, petals, anthers, and pistils. The sepals act as the protective shield that prevents damage to fragile parts from foreign material. Petals are aesthetically pleasing, attracting animal pollinators and people.

The anthers are the male reproductive organs, producing pollen that fertilizes the stigma where the female reproductive organ is located. The pistil is the female reproductive organ that produces the seeds to be fertilized to produce fruits. Now that you know a flower’s different parts, let’s look at the different reproduction categories.

Cosexual Trees

Cosexual trees have both female and male reproductive parts. Broadleaf trees usually have these types of flowers, with most of them being insect-pollinated and showy. If you are looking for an ornamental tree for your home, these trees are the ideal choice. Insect pollination is more effective and less likely to cause allergies, making them perfect if pollen triggers an allergic reaction. Significant examples include magnolia, cherry, and redbud.

Monoecious Trees

These trees have separate male and female flowers on the same tree. Monoecious means "single house," which shows the coexistence of both reproductive flowers in the same tree. Many trees in this category are wind-pollinated, meaning they are likely to cause allergies. However, the female flowers are found on the op to prevent self-pollination when the wind blows. Examples of such trees include redwood and oak.

Dioecious Trees

Like the former, the male and female flowers are separate, but the difference is they are found in different trees. They are primarily wind-pollinated and produce profuse pollen, which is unsuitable for people susceptible to allergies. Male trees grow faster than their counterparts and are more durable because pollen has a lower energy cost than seeds and fruits. If you have a cottonwood, podocarpus, or ginkgo in your yard that’s not producing any fruits, you probably planted a male tree.
