Importance of Early Detection
Pest and disease infestations may not be noticed by the untrained eye until the damage they cause shows up in the canopy or along the trunk. By then, it may be beyond the window of opportunity to effectively treat, so early detection is often critical. Infections of any sort on your trees can turn a healthy tree into a disease-ridden liability.
Once a tree is infected, that disease or tree pest can quickly spread to the surrounding trees and create a larger health problem for the neighboring trees, frequently extending outside of your own grounds.
Signs that Your Tree is Under Attack from Tree Pests & Disease
Any of the following signs could indicate that you have tree pests or that there is a disease attacking your trees. Should you see any of these signs, it would be wise to contact the arborists at Growing Earth straight away for an assessment and recommendations:
- Spots, holes, “spider webbing”, discoloration of the leaves, or smaller leaves
- Fungus on the bark
- Discoloration of the bark with white and black spots
- Crackling or crumbling bark
- Unusual sponginess in the bark texture
- Cracks in the tree trunk
- Finding wood shavings on the tree trunk
- A hollow trunk
- Signs of insect nest in the soil around the base of the tree
