4 Tips for Excellent Tree Health in Canby, OR , Northwest Clackamas, Oregon

With spring fast approaching in Canby, OR, it is easy to get caught up in the delight of blooming flowers and emerging leaves. Full, lush trees will soon provide shelter from the increasingly warm sun— but for the most part, not much thought is given to the health of those beautiful trees. When you allow the tree health experts at True Care to help care for your trees, keeping your property in top shape is never a daunting task.

Maintenance is essential to the health of your trees, and the professionals at True Care enjoy educating clients in proper tree health care. Here are a few ways to tell if your trees are healthy:

tree health

  • Trunk: The main trunk should be straight in appearance without an abundance of dead branches.
  • Bark: Healthy tree bark is free from diseases and fungi, cracks or large holes. Unless it belongs to a species that naturally peels, like birch or maple, the bark should be free from peeling.
  • Branches: Broken and dead branches may be a sign of trouble, and should be pruned away to avoid insects and diseases. Calling in a tree health professional is recommended to diagnose any possible issues. 
  • Leaves: Lots of leaves should be present on deciduous trees during the peak season. Evergreen trees and bushes should be checked for bare patches, since these often indicate problems such as disease, improper pruning, nutrient deficiency, pest infestation, or pesticide damage. Leaves should also be the appropriate color for the season; if you think there is a problem, the arborists at True Care will help determine the cause.
