Driscoll Tree Service and its team are professional, friendly, and excellent at tree removal. Their prices are the best. We had them remove a completely dead tree and a super large branch. For both experiences, they came out fast and did an Incredible job. Highly recommend.

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.

Will Pruning a Diseased Tree Help It Survive?

Detecting signs of deterioration in your trees can be quite frustrating, especially if irreversible. Luckily, scheduling routine maintenance inspections with a professional tree care company helps detect trivial signs of infection or infestation before it takes a toll on the trees’ overall well-being. The benefits of pruning exceed esthetic appeal, as it promotes optimal health by getting rid of damaged limbs before the tree develops a disease. Do you suspect you have a damaged tree on your premises? Consult Driscoll Tree Service, the leading tree service that provides a comprehensive assessment.

The Difference Between Damaged, Diseased and Dead

secondary

Like most living things, trees are constantly assaulted by viruses, bacteria, insects and fungi. Although trees are covered with bark that protects the living cells from intruders, wounds create a way for infection, which weakens or kills the living cells. To prevent diseases from gaining a foothold, you must prune them before the issue gets out of hand.

An experienced tree service provider targets and removes damaged limbs that act as disease access points. We believe that removing damaged, dead and diseased tissue helps maintain healthy and robust trees. As an experienced tree care company, we recommend minimal and basic cuts when pruning damaged limbs and crossed branches, which can become vectors of diseases.

Dead Wood

Severely damaged tissue that can’t be salvaged is considered to be dead. However, it would help if you did not confuse dead for dormancy since all the wood may appear dead in winter. Most perennials turn brown and dry when they die, and detecting signs of deterioration early can help mitigate further damage. If you detect the absence of leaves, hollow wood, lack of buds and missing bark, you must get rid of the affected limbs before the entire tree is compromised.

Damaged Wood

The reality is that dead tissue is often associated with partial tree death. Although the limb may still function as a living unit and is still leafy, the damage sustained internally or externally cause the tree to decline. Failure to address the issue in its early stages can interrupt the architecture feeding and supporting the tree. The best solution is to hire a tree care company in Snellville to remove the damaged branches or limbs, allowing new and stronger growth.

Diseased Wood

Diseases attack trees in many forms, such as fungi, bacteria and viruses. If a disease reaches the point it is easily detected, it is less likely to recover, hence the need to schedule regular checks with a trusted tree service to detect signs of decline early. Unlike broken or dead wood, diseased trees have a living inoculant that can still cause reinfection even after it is pruned. These may be fungus spores, insect eggs or bacteria.

Diseased trees should be pruned and regularly checked to ensure there are no traces of the disease. Failing to take action in the early stages of infection diminishes the chances of treatment and may result in tree death.
