Efficient, Affordable, and Professional what more can you ask for in a company. I had a big tree in my yard that needed to be cut down. From the estimate from Michael and the actual job being performed by his crew, everything was satisfactory. Including the clean-up. They’re also licensed and insured so that made selecting for the job even more comfortable. I highly recommend Driscoll Tree Service for your tree removal.

The service for Driscoll Tree Service was outstanding. Michael came out to meet with me, explained the pros and cons of how to deal with my tree removal, and provided a clear quote for the service. The crew that came out to do the work was on-time, professional and did a great job. One of the trees they had to remove was tall and in a spot where they couldn't get any heavy equipment to it, but they were able to take it down in pieces without damaging my landscaping or fence. If you are looking for a professional and competent tree service,  I definitely recommend calling Driscoll Tree Service.

Basics of Tree Pruning

Trees play a vital role in the ecosystem, from improving landscape appeal to purifying the air. Routine care is essential to improve tree health and longevity, like most living things. Pruning is one of the most basic yet vital maintenance services. Different pruning techniques exist for various needs and species, hence the need to consult a professional tree care company. Driscoll Tree Service leverages extensive industry knowledge and innovative equipment to provide quality pruning services.

If you prefer a more hands-on approach to tree care, consult a professional before tackling a pruning project. The slightest miscalculation can cause severe damage and injuries, especially if you don’t know how to handle pruning tools. As mentioned, there are different pruning techniques for varying needs. Here are the common pruning styles you need to know.

Cleaning

Cleaning is a pruning method that targets dying, dead, diseased, or weak branches from the tree’s crown. While it may not be a major cause for concern, ignoring damaged limbs can wreak havoc on your premises down the road. The last thing you want is to come home to a damaged roof or other property damage, costing hundreds, if not thousands, in repairs. In addition, infected or damaged branches affect the tree’s health and overall well-being, causing premature death and removal emergencies.

Raising or Lifting

secondary

Tree branches grow in every direction; sometimes, lower branches impede construction projects, movement, and parking. Raising or lifting is a pruning technique that rectifies this problem, allowing you to make the most of your yard. However, over-clearance of branches can affect your tree’s health, causing severe deterioration and death. If tree branches in your backyard prevent activities like construction or landscaping, call a reliable tree care company to ensure efficient and safe pruning.

Reduction

Another reason to consider tree pruning is to reduce the size of overgrown branches and trees. This is often for utility line clearance and entails heavy-duty equipment and skills. Unlike topping, reduction pruning helps maintain the tree’s form without compromising its structural integrity. DIYers should work with a professional to ensure minimal tree and property damage. Nothing is more frustrating than clearing branches only to damage your home or surrounding structures. When you hire a tree service provider, you don’t have to worry about your loved ones’ safety or costly repairs.

Thinning

Thinning is a pruning technique that reduces foliage density at the crown’s periphery. If you want to improve light and wind penetration into your home, we recommend thinning to ensure the desired results. Thinning is also ideal for enhancing curb appeal and promoting interior foliage development. While pruning may seem straightforward, it requires the right tools and expertise for safe execution.

The key to a successful pruning project is timing. Different tree species require pruning at varying times of the year, and that’s why you need to know when to prune trees in your backyard. Contact us at Driscoll Tree Service and schedule a consultation with our certified arborists. We understand and provide the correct pruning methods for durable and healthy trees.
