Though the two services are sometimes used interchangeably, tree trimming and tree pruning have subtly different purposes. Both involve removing branches and limbs, but trimming is focused more on the appearance of the tree while tree pruning is more dedicated to the health and development of the tree.
For instance, you would trim untidy and overgrown branches to give the tree a nice shape, and you prune branches that are diseased or infested. Of course, there are more sophisticated differences between the two. We won’t get into that in this article, but you are welcome to call Driscoll Tree Service to consult with an ISA-certified arborist. Don’t worry. Driscoll Tree Service offers both services. Our arborists can inspect your trees and figure out what needs to be done. We are always happy to take your call or arrange an on-site visit.
The benefits of tree trimming and tree pruning are threefold. We will break them down into safety, health, and appearance.
First and foremost, these services can mitigate or eliminate serious safety hazards. The most obvious is the risk of an overhanging or damaged branch falling on passersby, vehicles, and structures below. Overgrown branches can also interfere with utility lines, streetlights, and traffic signs. Finally, dead or dying branches are extremely flammable; a lightning strike can set the tree on fire. For these reasons, removing these risky branches may be a requirement for your property insurance company. Damage could be YOUR responsibility.
Next up on the list of benefits is the tree’s health. Tree pruning guides saplings’ growth into healthy and sturdy adult trees. Pruning dead, dying, and diseased branches also prevent the spread of disease and redirect vital nutrients to productive parts of the tree. Even tree trimming has health benefits as it allows trees to enjoy better sun exposure and airflow. This benefits nearby plants, flowers, and shrubs as well.
Finally, there is the matter of appearance. Pruning and trimming branches is an art as much as it is a science. Tree pruning guides young trees into attractive and symmetric structures. Meanwhile, tree trimming can turn your trees into fun and clean-cut shapes that decorate your lawn or landscape.

I was very impressed with how quickly and professionally they worked. They were in and out in an afternoon. They had to remove a giant Red Oak, and did so with great skill and speed. Their price is very affordable and beats out most of the competition around. I highly recommend Driscoll Tree Service. We will use them again for all of our future tree removal needs! Seriously, give them a call. They are awesome!
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.
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.
We called to have two large pine trees removed since they were in the way of where we needed to put our fence. We are slackers and always wait until the last minute to do anything so of course, we tried to find someone that could take these out quickly as we needed it done ASAP. These guys came out the same day I called and were able to get them out the next day. I was so impressed by how nice and professional they are, it’s nearly impossible to get anyone to come out and/or follow up with anything so it was extremely refreshing that they did both without me having to call and ask what the hold up was. I will forever use this company for future needs. Thank you again!!
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.
