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:
- 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.
