Welcome spring! The gloomy, cloudy days have come to an end. The new season welcomes new beginnings. Similarly, you must observe the trees in your backyard or front yard to ensure they are ready for the warmer weather. While some damages are more obvious, others can harm the trees immediately. Here is how to perform a detailed tree inspection:
Step 1: Observe the roots
Anchoring and absorbing are the two forms of roots. The former is present above the ground. The trees with an anchoring root have green leaves, regardless of the damage. However, a gentle breeze or rainwater weight means the tree falls to the ground due to the weakened root.
The absorbing roots are underneath. Their name is derived from absorbing water and vitamins from the soil. If the roots are damaged, the leaf’s discoloration means the tree’s health is threatened.
It would help if you observed mushrooms or fungus at the trunk. Hollows, cavities and cracked soil signal a deeper issue.
Step 2: observe the trunk
If the trunk has cavities, the tree’s health is deteriorating. Another common sign of concern is bleeding or an oozing trunk. In addition, missing bark or a sunken outer layer means you need professional help.
Even though the tree may appear healthy from the outside, cavities and fungi are damaging it internally. Aesthetic Tree and Hedge Service have the relevant tools to observe the interior professionally. We will insert cables to prevent the tree from leaning or angling closer to the ground if needed. Aesthetic Tree and Hedge Service openly discuss the tree’s health with the clients.
Step 3: Observe the branches
A broken or a soon-to-be broken branch is extremely dangerous. If the dangling branch is part of a canopy, it threatens human and animal lives.
Secondly, dead branches are also injurious. However, they are difficult to recognize in summer and spring due to the blooming leaves. Dead branches are black and usually surface in the winter when no leaves exist. You can hire Aesthetic Tree and Hedge Service, who will expertly remove dead or broken branches.
Thirdly, if the branch is missing bark at random places or has fungus growing, these usually signal a dead tree. In addition, keep a close eye on branches connected to the trunk.
Lastly, the individual must also observe narrow angles which open into multiple branches. These are attached to the trunk and weaken incredibly due to breaking. The attribute is very common in Elm and Maple trees.
What to do?
- If you notice any of these issues, remove the dead branches/wood from the garden regardless of the time of the year.
- You must monitor the branches closely to keep everyone safe if they seem dead.
- If you cannot figure out what to do, hire Aesthetic Tree and Hedge Service. Our experts will observe the trees thoroughly. We will eliminate the branches at the canopy’s apex and the crotch point.
