Michael came out to evaluate some trees I had with a questionable fungus on them, and ultimately the course of action was removal for a select few. He got me an estimate for the removal within a matter of days. They had the most competitive prices out of the other estimates I got. Michael is a very knowledgeable Arborist and you can tell he is passionate about his work. He wasn't pushy at all about the removal like some of the other companies I had come out, and he advised me on doing it in "phases" to fit my budget. The actual tree removal and stump grinding itself was so smooth and all the workers that came with the crane and stump service were very professional and communicative about what the process was going to be.

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!!

How to Properly Care and Watering Your Trees

Proper watering is one of the best ways to ensure your trees remain in optimal condition throughout their lifespan. With climate change affecting vegetation across the globe because of drought, Driscoll Tree Service can provide your landscape receives consistent watering to maintain healthy and lush trees. However, a common mistake many make is too much watering, which causes more harm and compromises the overall well-being of your trees. Watering is more than just turning on the sprinklers or manually pouring water around the tree, hence the need to hire a professional tree care company.

When to Water?

secondary

If you plan to water your backyard in summer, the hot weather evaporates half the water before it’s absorbed. With that in mind, the best time to water your trees is in the morning or evening, allowing the roots to drink as much water as possible. While there’s no schedule for watering trees, the tree size, weather, and soil conditions are key determinants.

Saplings require more water than established trees, and our tree service experts can ensure they get the right amount. The most effective way to tell if your trees need water is by checking the soil to see if it’s soggy. Use a garden trowel to check the ground two inches beneath the surface, and if it is dry to the touch, your trees need water.

How Much?

Industry experts recommend ten gallons for each inch of a fully grown tree. You can use a ruler or your best guess to determine how much water your tree needs. Consider hiring a tree care company for regular maintenance if you prefer a hands-off approach. This allows you to leverage our tree service providers’ extensive knowledge and expertise to ensure your trees get sufficient water and remain in tip-top condition. We can also detect minor signs of deterioration and recommend the best solution to address the problem.

Deeper is Better

The most crucial element when watering trees is "how." The best solution is watering deep and slow, and that’s why drip irrigation is the best bet. This technique allows the critical root zone to absorb adequate moisture rather than overhead watering, leading to a faster evaporation rate. When setting the drip line, our arborists ensure it extends to the entire area beneath the tree’s shade and a depth of ten inches.

Consistency

Whether your tree is constantly soggy or dry, it leads to stress and high susceptibility to infestation and diseases. It is advisable to keep the soil consistently moist to maintain healthy trees and reduce the frequency of emergency calls to a professional tree service. We conduct thorough inspections to detect trivial signs of damage before they compromise the overall well-being of your trees.

Another vital factor to consider in tree care and watering is the species. Different trees require varying conditions to thrive, and we can help you choose the best one for your backyard. Contact us at Driscoll Tree Service, and schedule a consultation with the experts. We guarantee exceptional services at pocket-friendly rates.
