ARE THERE WARNING SIGNS THAT I SHOULD LOOK FOR THAT HELP ME KNOW IF MY TREE HAS A DISEASE?
It really depends upon the variety of your tree, but there are some common signs that most diseased trees will exhibit. Different tree diseases will, of course, have different symptoms associated with them. The following should be taken as a warning sign that your tree is probably diseased:
A THINNING APPEARANCE AND CANOPY
A healthy tree will have a thick, full canopy and no bare areas through it. Trees that are diseased tend to have a thinning, sparse appearance.
DEAD BRANCHES AND BRANCHES FALLING
Severe weather, such as strong storms, may break your tree’s branches; however, when you observe dead branches on your tree or see them laying on your residential grounds then your tree is probably diseased.
PREMATURE LOSS OF LEAVES
Have you been wondering why your tree is shedding an excessive amount of leaves? If it’s not the appropriate time of year for your tree to be shedding its leaves then your tree is, most likely, diseased. Contact a tree expert right away if you’re observing premature defoliation.
SPOTS OR INAPPROPRIATE COLOR LEAVES
When your tree is healthy, its leaves will not have blemishes and the color will be appropriate for its variety. Brownish, yellow or burnt-looking leaves are definite indications that your tree is diseased. Contact an arborist that treats sick trees immediately.
WHAT CAN I DO TO IMPROVE THE HEALTH OF MY TREE?
Early diagnosis and treatment are extremely important! There are quite a number of tree diseases that can even kill your tree if treatment is delayed. The sooner that you have your tree diagnosed and that treatment are administered then the disease won’t be able to cause severe damage. Contact an experienced tree company to request an official diagnosis by a tree doctor. Don’t forget that your trees are valuable assets and they greatly increase your property value! Maintaining their health is of the utmost importance!
WHAT CAN I DO TO KEEP MY TREES HEALTHY SO THEY DON’T GET A TREE DISEASE?
An experienced tree company has the knowledge that you need from their vast study and experience in the Texas tree service industry! Always contact an experienced tree company and request a meeting with a tree care specialist. The highly-trained tree expert and ISA certified arborist will advise you and direct you regarding the following tree health-protective measures.
TREE HEALTH ASSESSMENT
This important process will let you know the status of your tree’s health and what you can do to keep it healthy. The ISA certified arborist examines your tree thoroughly and then completes a tree evaluation report. If your tree is appearing vulnerable to infectious diseases then the arbor care expert will inform you of the care that’s required. The nutrients that the tree is lacking and needs to be healthy and strong will be determined by the tree expert.
DEEP ROOT FERTILIZATION
We strongly recommend this important treatment! The highly-trained tree expert injects under pressure the exact liquid minerals and nutrients that the tree requires directly into its root zone. Soil aeration occurs from the injected oxygen and problems that soil compaction can cause are also eliminated. Trees that receive this health care treatment annually are 95% more resistant to disease and maintain a robust root structure.
Tree diseases and insect pests tend to target trees that have been damaged and wounded. Accidental tree wounding can occur from construction projects, regular lawn maintenance and shovels, and weed trimmers. Always entrust the care of your outdoor grounds to a professional arbor care company. They’ll guarantee that careless wounds to your trees don’t happen!
Many watering methods, such as sprinklers, will leave excessive moisture on outdoor habitat grounds and tree leaves. This wet environment invites destructive fungal diseases! Controlled watering by soaker hoses or soil drenching directed and overseen by arbor care professionals will ensure that your trees receive the proper amount of water and that tree diseases don’t occur.
REGULARLY-SCHEDULED TREE PRUNING
When your tree’s branches are overcrowded, they don’t receive the adequate sunlight that they need and there’s not sufficient airflow through their foliage. Regularly-scheduled tree pruning by a tree pruning service will correct and prevent these problems and help maintain the vitality and the health of your trees.
