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.

It took a while for the weather to cooperate, but when the time came, all went well with excellent results. The crew removed a large water oak and a small trash tree. They worked well together and when finished, the job site was cleaned up nicely. They were friendly and informative. Neighbors were also impressed. I highly recommend Driscoll Tree Service.

Three Signs You Are Overwatering Your Trees

Are you having a problem with your trees? Driscoll Tree Service can help to inspect every tree in your yard and recommend solutions to maintain healthy and robust trees. A common tree problem we encounter during maintenance checks is overwatering, an honest mistake most property owners or inexperienced landscapers make. As you water your lawn, it's easy to make this mistake because the top soil dries faster, assuming that the same applies to the soil underneath the ground.

Unfortunately, plenty of water is not good for your trees, and it can create problems with them or, worse, kill them. This isn't always the case; watering the trees again can be excessive. We recommend hiring a reputable tree care company for routine maintenance, ensuring signs of overwatering are detected before the damage becomes irreversible. If you suspect a problem with your trees, here are signs to look out for before hiring a professional arborist.

Soggy Soil

Part of the reason why mulching is an essential tree maintenance practice is moisture retention, which means you don't have to water your lawn frequently. Even if the top soil is dry, stick your finger or a shovel into the soil to see if the soil underneath is damp. If the soil is still soggy, your trees have sufficient water, and no more should be added. This is usually true if you've applied mulch around your trees. If the soil near your trees is soggy, this is a sign that your trees are overwatered and are at risk of damage.

Crispy Leaves

secondary

If the leaves on your trees are turning brown or yellow and getting brittle, it's natural to think they aren't getting enough water. However, this is not always the case because the roots cannot provide sufficient oxygen due to excess moisture content in the soil. You are drowning your trees, hence the discoloration and deterioration of foliage. While there are many causes of crispy leaves in trees, working with a professional tree service company is crucial to detect and prevent the cause early.

Early Death

Overwatering creates the perfect environment for wood-boring pests and fungus, which affect the growth and development of trees. As mentioned above, excess water is not good for your trees and can lead to early death. Your trees are susceptible to fungal growth, which eat away at them and their root systems. Severe damage to the roots compromises the tree's ability to absorb nutrients and air, resulting in decay and death. If there's a tree in your yard that's dying, the first call you make should be to a reputable tree care company. We conduct comprehensive inspections of the trees and the ground around to determine the cause and severity of the problem.

Make the smart choice and contact Driscoll Tree Service to schedule a consultation with our experts. We leverage state-of-the-art equipment and extensive industry knowledge to provide exceptional tree care and maintenance services at competitive market rates.
