How Do I Determine If My Tree Is Sick?

Were you walking through your yard and noticed something strange with your tree? Chances are there’s something wrong with it. When a tree is sick, it shows many signs for you to notice, and it’s better to know the undesired consequences of not taking care of it on time.

In this piece, you’ll learn about the symptoms of a sick tree and why removing it will help to eliminate potentially hazardous situations.

Trees are such an important part of our environment and landscape. Not only do they provide shade and beauty, but they also play an essential role in our ecosystem by helping to clean the air we breathe. That’s why it’s so important to keep them healthy! But when there’s nothing else to do with a sick tree, it is better to have it removed to avoid any major risk. 

Signs Of A Sick Tree

Some common symptoms of a sick tree are leaves that are not green anymore and have brown spots, branches that don’t grow or die, unusual growths on the bark of the tree, sap that flows from the trunk or branches in an excessive amount, mushrooms growing at the base of the tree. 

Insect Infestation Or Diseases

A tree infestation is very easy to spread, and most likely, it’ll affect your tree and others surrounding it. These are white of black spots, sticky substances, chewed foliage, holes in the trunk, and many others. For the safety of other trees and people surrounding it, it’s better to have them removed.

Decay Or Rotting

Tree rotting occurs due to the presence of fungi on your tree. The fungi spread throughout the trunk and weaken the wood, and if it’s not assisted at the proper time, it might cause risky situations such as falling limbs. Tree removal is the best option when this happens, so please contact a professional tree service company to have it inspected.

Cracks In The Main Trunk 

Trunk cracks are a sign of an unstable tree. If the major part of the tree is cracking, it could turn into an undesired situation and hurt someone, so the best thing you could do is remove it!
