Arborist Care – Here’s How To Tell If A Tree Is Dying Or Dead

You can usually tell when something is wrong with your tree. You might be concerned that one or some of the trees in your yard might be dying or in danger of falling on our house or other buildings. And such concern will want you to know some dying tree symptoms.

You will not want to ignore a dead or dying tree. Here are simple steps to check on your tree.

Symptoms of a dying tree

Knowing the difference between a dead and a declining tree is important. In many situations, sick trees can be saved, but a dead tree may cause harm to you and damage to your property. Some telling symptoms of a dead tree include cracks in the trunk or peeling bark, mushrooms growing in the tree roots and multiple branches with no living buds.

Dead tree symptoms

Dead trees often have a mix of visible signs. For example, aside from the branches not leafing out, there may be problems with the trunk or unfamiliar growth near the roots. If you think there’s something wrong with your tree, check top-to-bottom, and keep an eye out for a mix of concerning symptoms.

Identifying a dying tree

You can do a quick test to help reduce the risks that come with having a dead tree in your yard. Using your fingertip or a pocket knife, scratch one of the tree’s twigs. If ithe underneath is green and moist, then it is alive. If it’s brown and brittle underneath, it indicate a state of dying. Call an expert in arborist care as soon as possible to look and remove it if necessary.
