This is the second time using Driscoll, and we are pleased with the service. Michael is knowledgeable and punctual. We had eight trees trimmed, and they left no traces of the work in our yard. Polite workers. Reasonably priced as well. Highly recommend.

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.

Professional Tree Service vs. Handyman

Large green trees are a valuable addition to any landscape. Healthy trees enhance the overall curb appeal and property value, purify the air, and attract wildlife. Routine maintenance is vital to ensure your trees grow and live longer. Many homeowners often opt for a handyperson service because of the lower service cost, but this might cost you more in the long haul. The best way to maintain robust and safe trees is to hire a professional tree care company.

Driscoll Tree Service leverages extensive industry knowledge and proven techniques to guarantee top-quality services. We provide comprehensive tree services, including planting, pruning, trimming, and tree and stump removal. You’ve come to the right place if you need to know whether to work with a handyman or a tree service.

When to Hire a Handyperson for Tree Cutting and Removal

Pruning and removal are not limited to large and small trees less than 15 feet tall. A handyperson might be the best option to eliminate such a tree from your yard. Before signing any paperwork to start the job, ensure they have the right tools and a lengthy portfolio of successful projects. The last thing you want is to incur extra costs following property damage or injuries. Large trees require the expertise and industry-standard equipment of a certified tree service provider, and that’s where we come in. When you want to eliminate a large or small tree, we can inspect the project’s magnitude and recommend viable solutions at competitive rates.

Why Hire a Tree Care Company and Not a Handyman?

secondary

As mentioned, a handyperson service only deals with minor projects that don’t require a lot of expertise or innovative equipment. While hiring a tree service may seem expensive, the benefits offset the service cost. A handyman leverages simple tools that are ineffective in invasive projects, like pruning or removal. Still, a tree care company is equipped to handle any project professionally. Here are reasons to consider working with a certified arborist.

Prevent Property Damage and Injuries

Pruning or cutting large trees can cause severe injuries and devastating damage. If a handyperson handles the job, you could be financially liable for safety hazards during and after the project. A professional tree service provider understands the safety protocols for maintenance activities, giving you peace of mind.

Proper Tree Cutting Techniques

A handyman can remove a small tree less than 15 feet tall, but larger trees might require more experience and training. Our arborists assess the tree and customize a removal or treatment plan. We inspect, detect, and diagnose the problem, guaranteeing long-term solutions. In addition, we have an arsenal of modern tools that enhance the efficiency and safety of the job.

Now that you know the difference between a handyman and a tree service provider, contact us at Driscoll Tree Service. We guarantee highly reliable, skilled, licensed arborists ready to provide a detailed written estimate before breaking ground on a project. Schedule a consultation today and enjoy quality tree services at friendly rates.
