I Have A Tree That Looks Terrible. Is It Dying?
Your tree will be closely examined by an ISA certified arborist and a diagnosis report will be presented to you after the cause of your declining tree is determined. If your tree has an incurable disease, is already dead or is too severely sick, tree removal will be necessary.
As with any disease, the earlier you treat it the less damage that will occur. Unfortunately, we meet many homeowners who wait too long. Don't let that be you!
What Signs Do Dying Trees Show in Fort Worth, TX?
- Fungal Presence: No matter where you notice fungal presence throughout your outdoor habitat, it is never a positive sign. Standing water, excessive soil moisture and poor drainage due to compacted soil causes damaging fungi to thrive. If you observe fungi on your tree's trunk or around its baseline, the tree may be in the process of dying. Contact a tree care specialist quickly!
- Odd Tree Trunk Appearance: Is the bark on your tree's trunk consistent in appearance? Is there bald areas with missing bark or dents and cracks? Does the area around branches that connect to the trunk appear damaged? All these symptoms are cause for alarm.
- Excessive/Untimely Leaf Loss: Premature defoliation is a warning sign. Many trees naturally shed their leaves in the fall; however, if your tree seems to be shedding an excessive amount of leaves or losing its leaves during seasons when leaf-shedding isn't typical, don't delay in requesting diagnosis and treatment. Furthermore, if your tree's foliage is wilted, shriveled or discolored, the tree is either suffering from a tree disease or is slowly dying.
- Branches Falling or Dead Branches: Severe weather conditions can cause tree branches to break. A healthy tree will have pliable, flexible branches. If you see dead branches on your outdoor grounds, inspect them closely. Are they brittle with no leaves? Do they appear to be rotted or destroyed by insects? A quick tip is to grab a small fallen branch and try to snap it. If it breaks easily rather than being flexible, the tree may be dead or dying.
- Damage To Tree Roots: Some trees naturally lean depending upon where they are planted. If your tree appears to be tilted, you may have root damage. Indications include exposed root areas, uplifted soil around the tree's base or noticeable wounds from weed trimmers, shovels and the like.
Do not ignore any of the above symptoms! A dying tree can topple over without notice and not only threaten your property but can put you in danger. Call an arbor care specialist immediately!
