Driscoll Tree Service and its team are professional, friendly, and excellent at tree removal. Their prices are the best. We had them remove a completely dead tree and a super large branch. For both experiences, they came out fast and did an Incredible job. Highly recommend.

We called to have two large pine trees removed since they were in the way of where we needed to put our fence. We are slackers and always wait until the last minute to do anything so of course, we tried to find someone that could take these out quickly as we needed it done ASAP. These guys came out the same day I called and were able to get them out the next day. I was so impressed by how nice and professional they are, it’s nearly impossible to get anyone to come out and/or follow up with anything so it was extremely refreshing that they did both without me having to call and ask what the hold up was. I will forever use this company for future needs. Thank you again!!

5 Common Reasons Why Your Trees Die?

Trees enhance the aesthetics of any living space and contribute to the local ecosystem. However, trees are susceptible to infections and infestations, causing premature death. A dying or dead tree in your backyard affects curb appeal and poses safety hazards. We at Driscoll Tree Service can help you protect your trees from common causes of tree death by inspecting, detecting, and addressing minor signs of damage in time. If you suspect a tree in your yard is severely damaged, hire a tree care company to diagnose the issue and recommend a viable solution. Here are the most common causes of dying trees.

Declining Root System

Tree health is critical for longevity. If the soil in your yard has a poor drainage system, your trees may need more water for growth. Hence, anchoring roots weaken and cause health declines. It is essential to have a proper watering system for trees in your system to mitigate this damage. A significant sign that your tree’s anchorage is damaged because of leaning. If you come home to find your tree leaning on one side, call a professional tree service for an inspection.

Mildew, Leaf Spots, and Bacteria

As mentioned, trees are prone to various fungal, bacterial, and viral diseases. If you notice a white powder on the foliage, your tree may have caught powdery mildew-a type of fungal infection that overwhelms the tree and causes death. In addition, homeowners should watch out for black, brown, or discolored spots on leaves, as they show bacterial infection. Many diseases can be prevented if telltale signs of damage are detected and treated in time.

Lightning Damage

Tall trees in the backyard are aesthetically pleasing and improve property value. However, they are susceptible to lightning strikes, especially in areas without adequate planning. Although nature is unpredictable, setting up a lightning protection system can minimize the damage caused during a vicious thunderstorm. Once a tree on your property is struck by lightning, don’t attempt DIY maintenance to salvage what’s left. We can inspect and determine the severity of the damage before recommending a viable solution.

Old Age

Like most living things, trees have an expiration date. Even with routine care and maintenance, old age can take a toll on trees, which may eventually topple under their weight. The most effective way to prevent accidental injuries is to remove dead branches, stumps, or entire trees and plant a new one. Old age is usually a minor cause for concern, but delaying professional inspections and maintenance can compromise the safety of your premises and surrounding structures.

Construction Damage

If you have a construction project lined up, keep a close eye on your trees for damage. Construction projects usually entail large equipment and materials that can injure your yard’s trees. Maintaining adequate spacing between the construction site and your trees goes a long way in mitigating fatal injuries that cause death.

There are many causes of tree deaths, and only a professional tree care company can diagnose and recommend a lasting solution. Contact us at Driscoll Tree Service to schedule an inspection with our experienced arborists. We provide excellent tree services guaranteed to boost overall health and durability without breaking the bank.
