Great job they removed a big tree stump on our property with no problem and at a better price than the others guys wanted to charge us. Driscoll Tree Service team was on time and had the right equipment and got right to work.

I began using Driscoll Tree Service back in 2021 and was so impressed with their knowledge and quality of work, I have only hired Driscoll Tree Service since!  Just a few weeks ago, my large oak tree needed a trim and once again it was a great job!!

Signs It's Time to Trim Your Trees

Trees play a vital role in our environment, offering many benefits, including fresh air, shade, and curb appeal. However, trees require proper care and maintenance to thrive. Regular trimming is one of the most crucial aspects of tree care, hence the need to hire a professional company. The Driscoll Tree Service leverages proven strategies and innovative equipment to maintain healthy and durable trees. Here are four vital signs that show it is time to call a tree service provider to trim your trees.

Overgrown Branches

Overgrown branches are the most visible sign that a tree needs trimming. When branches become long and extend beyond the tree’s natural shape, they threaten the tree’s overall health. Overgrown branches are more susceptible to diseases and pests and can become heavy, making them more likely to break during storms or high winds. In addition, they may obstruct sunlight and air circulation, affecting the tree’s growth. Trimming overgrown branches can help maintain the structural integrity and mitigate premature tree removal emergencies.

Dead Branches

Dead branches are unsightly and hazardous to the tree and the surrounding environment. They can break and fall quickly, posing a risk to people, property, and other parts of the tree. Hire professional arborists to identify and remove dead branches rapidly. These branches don’t have leaves, and their bark may appear brittle or peel easily. Hiring a tree care company to trim dead branches improves the tree’s safety and prevents the spread of diseases and decay.

Low-Hanging Branches

Low-hanging branches are problematic for several reasons. They can obstruct passersby or vehicles, creating safety hazards. In addition, they may interfere with lawn maintenance and landscaping efforts, making maintaining the area beneath the tree challenging. If you notice low-hanging branches blocking sunlight from reaching the ground, call a tree service to ensure the growth of the vegetation below. These branches provide pests and rodents easier access to climb onto the tree and cause damage. We recommend hiring a tree care company for routine trimming of low-hanging branches to enhance your landscape’s aesthetics and ensure a safer environment.

Damaged Branches

Cracked branches are a significant concern because they can fail unexpectedly, causing injuries or property damage. These branches may exhibit visible cracks, splits, or wounds, compromising their structural integrity. They are also more vulnerable to decay and disease, which can spread to other parts and cause costly tree removal projects. Proper trimming of damaged branches can prevent further deterioration, promote the tree’s recovery, and prevent accidents.

Trees are valuable environmental assets, and you should consider their care. Regular tree trimming is essential in maintaining health, safety, and aesthetics. Contact us at the Driscoll Tree Service and schedule a consultation with our arborists to ensure your trees thrive and provide many benefits. When in doubt, we recommend consulting a professional who can assess your tree's specific needs and provide expert guidance on the proper trimming practices. Proper tree care ensures we enjoy the beauty and benefits trees bring.
