Signs Of An Infection
Like any living thing, there may be many signs that indicate when a tree is sick. Deep splits in the tree’s bark, discolored leaves, or the appearance of fungi are just some of the visual signs that indicate your trees illness. If you notice these signs, then it is important that you contact a tree removal service to assist you in determining what your best course of action is.
These signs are less apparent due to the fact that they are under the ground, but they are still important to note if you do notice signs of heaving soil or fungi growing near the base of the tree. Fungi is a strong indicator of root or trunk decay and could result in the tree breaking or buckling if too much of the trunk has decayed.
If a tree is rotten or hollow on the inside, removal is the next step to take. A hollow trunk can compromise a tree’s stability, causing it to potentially fall or break. Cavities on the trunk of a tree can also be quite dangerous. Depending on its size, location, and depth, cavities may help indicate the amount of decay within the tree trunk.
- Chipped or peeling bark
- Dead or hanging branches around the tree’s crown
- Low-hanging branches
- Branches with no growing buds
