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.

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.

Facts About Winter Tree Planting

Planting trees is a major decision that requires consideration of crucial factors like planting time, soil quality, tree type, and tree placement. While most people often avoid landscaping projects during the cold months, winter is ideal for planting new saplings, depending on the soil temperature and overall conditions. As a professional tree care company, Driscoll Tree Service can assess the conditions on your property and guide you through a successful planting project. If you want to plant trees this winter, here are facts to help you make informed decisions.

Why Winter is Suitable for Tree Planting

Winter is not usually ideal for outdoor activities, but it has its advantages in tree planting. During the cold months, deciduous trees are dormant, meaning they are not actively growing foliage or flowers. This dormancy state allows them to focus their energy on developing strong root systems. The cooler temperatures also reduce the risk of transplant shock, as the tree is not exposed to extreme heat and sunlight, which can stress young saplings. In addition, the lack of leaves in winter makes it easier for arborists to assess the structure of the tree and its root system. We can more effectively identify and prune dead or damaged branches, preventing further damage and tree removal emergencies. 

Know the USDA Growing Zones

Another vital factor to consider before winter tree planting is your USDA Hardiness Zone. This is crucial in mitigating problems in the future and ensuring healthy growth. Different tree species have specific temperature and climate requirements, hence the need to consult a reputable service provider. Our skilled arborists work with you to identify the various zones on your property and suitable trees that can thrive in those conditions and temperature ranges.

Weather Forecast

Checking the weather forecast is essential before hiring a tree care company to handle a winter tree planting project. Extreme cold or frost can be detrimental, compromising your trees’ health and overall well-being. Tree service experts usually recommend a mild day with temperatures above freezing for tree planting during winter. However, avoid tree planting during heavy rainfall or when the ground is frozen solid, as this can hinder root growth and establishment. The last thing you want is a premature tree removal emergency because of bad planting weather.

Trees to Plant in Winter

When considering trees to plant in winter, consult a professional tree care company to choose species well-suited to the season’s conditions. Deciduous trees like oaks, maples, and birches, especially bare-root trees, are often suitable for winter planting. These species are known for adaptability and thrive when planted during the dormant season. Evergreen trees such as pines, spruces, and fir are also excellent choices for winter planting because of their ability to hold moisture through their needle-like leaves, which is beneficial in cold and dry weather. Selecting the right tree species is crucial for a successful winter tree planting project, but if you need professional help, call a tree service expert.

Winter tree planting can be a successful endeavor when done correctly. With careful planning and consideration of these factors, you can contribute to a greener, healthier environment. Contact us at Driscoll Tree Service and schedule a consultation with our professional arborists for successful planting during the year’s coldest months.
