The weather is finally warming up bringing in the promise of spring! There are several things to do to make sure your trees and shrubs are healthy and ready to thrive this spring season!
How do you plan on preparing your yard for the spring?
It’s important to take care of the trees on your property. Not only are they good for the environment and our air quality, but trees can increase your property value. If you are observant, you may be able to help your sick tree before it’s too late.
Trees will normally have telltale signs that it is sick. It’s good to be able to visually inspect your tree for any abnormalities. Some of the most common visual cues are:
If you see one or more of these issues with your tree, it could be a sign that something serious is wrong with your tree. Dark spots, or discoloration on your leaves could be a sign of leaf disease. Holes and cavities in the wood may be a pest and insect problem. Your tree could also have a serious infection.
When you suspect that there is something wrong with your tree, you should call a licensed arborist to come out and inspect the tree. Sick trees can infect other trees on your property, so it’s best to contact someone as soon as you see any signs of illness. A professional arborist can help treat the disease, or safely remove the tree from your property.
