Diseased Tree warning signs
Sometimes we mistake the health of our trees to the number of years they've been in our yards. Although their health is directly proportional to their lifespan, sometimes they sit in our yards with disease, but we fail to notice because we assume they're healthy. This is why regular checking of your trees is essential to ensure they are in good health. However, it can still be possible that despite proper caring and routine maintenance, our trees become infected by diseases.
Here are some red flags to watch for when you want to keep your trees healthy and avoid premature tree removal being required.
Watch Out for Dying Limbs
Although this is one of the most apparent signs of diseases, it is usually overlooked by most homeowners. Make a regular inspection of your tree a habit and check for dying or dead limbs because it can mean that your tree has a serious health problem. Inspect your tree and look for branches and limbs that seem weak or the color turns to gray. If you see these signs, call a tree expert right away.
Don't Ignore Bugs
Bugs in trees are normal. However, there are certain species of insects that you should watch out for. Some bugs can cause harm to your trees that can result in your trees dying. Termites are one of the most common insects that invade your tree, but there are also other types of bugs that can hurt your tree. Bugs can eat the leaves and compete for nutrients. This will lead to your trees to die soon.
Beware of Mushrooms
Many homeowners think that mushrooms around the base of the tree are healthy, especially if the season is wet. Although there is a hint of truth to this, you must know that a large number of mushrooms around your tree can mean that your tree needs professional attention as soon as possible.
There are types of mushrooms that only grow when the tree is decaying. If you notice mushrooms at the base of your tree, it might indicate that your tree is diseased or worse, dying. As soon as you see mushrooms growing around the bottom of your tree, you should take action.
Growth in the Wrong Places
Spring means new growth. This is an exciting season for trees to grow and produce flowers and fruits. However, if you notice new growths at the base of your tree, it might mean that your tree's root structure is in danger. It may cause a lack of nutrients that the tree needs to live. This is a good reason for you to call tree experts for professional help.
