Having a garden and you may be a bit in a panic if you find that one of your favourite trees is being threatened by an infectious disease. There are a lot of things that can happen to your tree and they may need urgent care. Before you call an arborist to help you with tree care, here are some things that can help your tree’s health.
1. Trees get sick for several reasons. While some illnesses can easily be cured, others may be difficult to cure and at times can be the cause for a tree to die. Help your tree by examining its conditions around the base as this will give you a better view of what is happening with it. Search for raised soil, damage in soil made by pests, rotting growth overall lean, or exposed root systems.
2. See the bark and its structure if it has been continually tampered with or damaged. It can also cause the tree to be susceptible to disease. Remember that a tree that has been ring-barked intentionally or accidentally may eventually die especially if the bark was removed from the mid-section.
3. See if the tree has good foliage. Check the limbs and external reaches of the tree especially in areas where there are no leaves. Check also for leaves discolouration, oddly leaf structure, and yellow or block leaves spots.
When you know the tree’s problem, you can either treat the problem or hire an arborist to help your tree further. If you do not know the next step to take, contact your local Ipswich tree service provider for proper care.
