Trees bring life to your property. It is hard for dedicated gardeners to see a precious tree diseased or dying. They appreciate the importance of trees and the natural beauty they possess. However, it can be difficult for them to let go when removal is a must. If it is time to cut it down, then having a qualified arborist come to your property should be your next step.
Your local tree service companies know if the tree can survive or need to be cut down. Here are some ways to consider if your tree needs a professional or if you can save it on your own:
- Check the roots if they look soft and slimy or become a habitat for pests. It would help if you also looked for fungus, which means the wood is rotting.
- Missing bark patches, the presence of beetles, and holes made by insects are not a good sign that your tree is in good health. You should contact an arborist to assess the tree’s condition properly.
- It is not a good sign if your tree is not evergreen. When evergreens are ill, you will see the leaves rust coloured foliage. Check the leaves if they are crispy and brown or yellow and spongy. If they are, have an arborist check the tree right away.
Also, the wintertime is a good time for an arborist to visit your property since trees mostly go in their dormant stage. It will be easier for a qualified tree care specialist to diagnose your tree and do the necessary treatment it requires.
