Sick Tree Symptoms
Our arborists will look for signs of sickness in your trees. Some of the most common ones include galls, yellowing, wilting, poor or slow growth, stem dieback, cankers, blotches on the leaves or spotty leaves.
The largest problem that we see is when a tree is generally infectious to the other trees in an area. A disease or injury to a tree can be abiotic or biotic. Abiotic stresses are caused by the environment and include issues related to nutrients, temperature, water or air. Biotic Stresses are other factors such as fungus, viruses, bacteria and insects.
The most common issues that can lead to tree stress include:
- When a tree is under watered or over watered
- When there is an issue with the fertilizer
- When construction leads to root damage
Anytime that you are going to start a construction project you should contact a certified arborist. You will notice that simply having one on hand and getting their input before the construction begins can ensure that most of your trees survive the construction process.
When doing construction, you should also do your best to avoid causing mechanical injuries to the trees. Any heavy equipment such as bulldozers can damage the tree bark or roots, so it is important to consult an arborist and do your best to avoid the trees when working.
You should always pay attention to the soil grade as there are several options available. Keep in mind that microbes sit on top of your soil and there are ways to influence their numbers as well. In terms of soil compaction, you should always make sure that the soil is not too solid. If this happens, it can damage or kills some of the roots.
