Sick Trees

Trees provide us with countless benefits.  Beauty, shade, bird songs, fruits, nuts, in fact, the very oxygen we breathe is emitted from trees, and carbon dioxide is cleared from our environment by trees. So you could say, or lives are dependent on the health of our trees to a large extent. Trees in our yards and neighborhoods, and in urban settings depend on us to get the nutrients and water they require to remain healthy. Trees are a vital feature of our environment and we do well to take care of them, as they take good care of us.
However, trees face more threats from the environment than there are species of trees!  Our trees are vulnerable to an enormous range of diseases, insect infestations, storm damage,and lack of care in many areas.
 Have you noticed unusual  things occurring with your trees? If you suspect your trees are being damaged, these are some possible causes:

  • Mushroom fungi growing around the tree
  • Sawdust chips at the base and visible roots
  • Hollow or sickly-looking areas on the tree
  • Dead limbs and broken tops
  • Discoloration of branches, leaves, and roots
  • Cracks at the tree base or on limbs
  • Cavities on the tree.

Tree Uncared For

There are a diverse variety of Pine trees, for instance, and many insects love to burrow into them. The Pine Bark Beetle, as one example, have been capable of eradicating forests of pines in a very short time. These insects are barely the size of a grain of rice, but what they lack in size, they more than compensate for in sheer volume! Their mouths are developed in such a way that they are just right for chewing voraciously. When untreated these Beetles make waste areas of once strong, healthy Pine Trees. Pine Bark Beetles leave behind formations of yellowish-white pitch resembling popcorn, reddish dust in bark crevices, and adult beetles leave a blue stain fungus. And this is only one insect threatening Tree Health!

Beetles, borers, aphids, various worms, the list is almost endless! These enemies of our trees leave them with root rot, blights, ugly, malformed leaves, sparse, inedible fruit and nuts, and many other ailments which generally result in the death of a tree.
