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.

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.

Tree Pruning: DIY vs. Hiring a Professional

Trees rarely need any maintenance in the winter because they are dormant. However, spring is around the corner and offers property owners a chance to prune trees in the backyard. It is advisable to consult a reputable tree service provider. Pruning is a daunting and potentially risky job and should be handled by trained professionals to mitigate injuries and damages. Although DIY projects seem cost-effective, we recommend having a trusted tree care company on hand. The slightest miscalculation can cause irreversible damage and compromise the safety of your loved ones. Here are viable options to consider before a pruning project.

Do It Yourself

As mentioned, your (DIY) projects can get derailed or wreak havoc if performed by an inexperienced individual. The Consumer Product Safety Commission reported over 40,000 chainsaw-related accidents annually. Even if you buy or hire a chainsaw, without the skills needed to handle the equipment safely, you risk the safety of everyone on the premises. The last thing you want is a tree falling on your home or neighboring structures and the subsequent hefty repairs. You can avoid such scenarios by hiring a professional tree service and following pruning safety protocols.

Hire a Landscape Company

Landscape companies offer various services, including tree trimming, to supplement their income. Even though landscapers have more pruning experience than you, they need to learn to provide long-term care for your trees. Landscape companies need adequate insurance coverage to protect you from extra costs when something goes wrong. Many companies have workers’ compensation, which only applies to landscape projects, meaning injuries sustained during pruning will not be covered. Nothing is more frustrating than incurring extra charges for a mistake you did not make, and that’s why you need to work with a professional tree care company.

"Two Guys and a Truck" Tree Service Company

Many businesses claim to be tree service providers, but only "two guys and a truck" appear. You can also see these men entering the neighborhood to drum up their business. Not only do they need the proper equipment to complete the project, but they also have adequate knowledge to prune trees safely without causing damage. If you are not careful about the people you hire, the chances of choosing inexperienced and uncertified individuals are high. Ensure the tree service company your hire has liability insurance and workers’ compensation to protect you from legal action.

Hire an Arborist
