Warning Signs Of A Sick Tree
Do you have a sick tree? As a typical homeowner it can be difficult to tell the difference between changes in your tree that indicate illness and normal changes throughout seasons and their lifespan. Here we will go over what are common health symptoms and what signs are typically not alarming.
What Symptoms Indicate A Sick Tree:
If you see these common symptoms on your tree you should contact a certified arborist immediately to diagnose and treat the issue.
What To Not Be Concerned About:
Trees normally have a little lean to them. The truck of a tree curves because of the tree’s ability to adapt overtime to the changing availability of sunlight. The tree’s root system will grow to accommodate this off center weight distribution. However, if a tree suddenly begins to lean, starts leaning after a storm, if the soil around the tree is heaving, or if there are gaps in the soil near the stem of the tree the tree may be at risk of falling. Not sure if your leaning tree is dangerous? Check out our leaning tree video.
If you spot insects on your property such as bees, ladybugs, green lace wigs, or praying mantis you don’t need to worry. These bugs are what we call beneficial insects. Beneficial insects are species that perform valued services like pollination and pest control. These insects will police your landscape and keep harmful insects that want to hurt your trees and shrubs in check.
