I had a large oak tree taken down near power lines and an outdoor kitchen. I was well informed about the work they were going to do and how long it should take. The team was professional, fast and dropped the tree safely. They used a bucket truck and climber to trim branches from the top half of the tree with no damage to the yard around the tree.  I am extremely pleased with Driscoll Tree service work.

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.

Tree Maintenance Tips to Prevent Property Damage

Trees on your property can enhance its beauty and provide many environmental benefits. However, without proper maintenance by a professional tree care company, trees can become a liability, leading to property damage and safety hazards. At the Driscoll Tree Service, we leverage extensive experience and knowledge to guarantee excellent services. Let’s look at the essential tree care tips to ensure a healthy growth and prevent potential property damage.


Routine Inspections

Regular inspection by a reputable tree service is vital to identify and address potential issues early on. Our certified arborists can inspect your trees at least once a year. We can detect signs of disease, pest infestations, and structural weaknesses that might lead to falling branches or toppling trees. Timely identification and intervention can prevent severe property damage and ensure your trees’ longevity.

Pruning and Trimming

Pruning and trimming are essential practices to maintain the health and shape of your trees while preventing property damage. Trimming removes dead, diseased, or weak branches that could break during storms and cause harm. Proper pruning techniques improve tree structure, allowing for better wind resistance and reducing the risk of falling branches.


Providing adequate nutrients to your trees enhances their vitality and resilience against diseases and pests. Fertilization compensates for nutrient deficiencies in the soil, promoting robust growth and sturdy branches. However, it’s essential to consult with an arborist before applying fertilizers, as excess use can harm the tree and surrounding ecosystem.


Proper watering is critical to maintaining healthy trees. Newly planted trees require more frequent watering until their root systems establish. Mature trees also need adequate hydration, especially during dry periods. Ensure a deep and slow watering session allows water to penetrate the soil and reach the roots effectively.


Mulching around the base of your trees helps hold soil moisture, regulate temperature, and suppress weed growth. Organic mulch, such as wood chips or compost, also enriches the soil as it decomposes, providing essential nutrients to the tree roots. Remember to keep mulch away from the tree trunk to prevent rot and insect infestations. Hire a tree care company to apply mulch material if you prefer a hands-off approach. 

Protection against Pests and Diseases


Pests and diseases can quickly spread among trees and weaken their structure. Implement preventive measures such as regular inspections, prompt removal of infected branches, and pesticide applications when necessary. A healthy tree is more resilient against potential threats.

Lightning Protection

Consider installing lightning protection systems for your valuable trees in areas prone to thunderstorms and lightning strikes. These systems redirect electrical charges away from the tree, reducing the risk of damage or destruction.

Root Maintenance

Strong, healthy roots are the foundation of a stable tree. Avoid compacting the soil around the tree base, which can hinder root growth and nutrient absorption. If construction or other activities are planned near the tree, consult an arborist to protect the root system.

Removal of Dead Trees

Dead or dying trees are hazardous and should be removed promptly. Their weakened state increases the likelihood of falling branches or the entire tree collapsing, posing a threat to your property and safety. Hire a professional tree removal service to eliminate dead trees from your landscape safely.

Caring for your trees is essential for their health and growth and crucial for preventing property damage and ensuring the safety of your surroundings. Contact us at Driscoll Tree Service and schedule a consultation with a trusted tree service provider.
