Why Is Tree Health Important?

Tree health services are the best way to maintain trees’ vitality, longevity, and safety in urban and natural environments. These services are important because they help identify and address issues that may affect your trees’ health and well-being, including diseases, pests, nutrient deficiencies, and environmental stressors.

Keeping your trees in good shape also helps you:

  • Protect property and people with tree risks being identified and mitigated early
  • Preserve urban greenery, providing shade, improving air quality, and reducing noise pollution around your property
  • Prevent the spread of tree diseases
  • Safeguard your property value and aesthetic appeal

How Can You Tell When a Tree Isn’t Healthy?

Here’s what to look for:

  • Leaf discoloration
  • Thinning canopy
  • Dead or decaying branches
  • Unusual growth patterns
  • Bark damage
  • Visible pests

What’s Involved in a Tree Inspection?

A tree inspection involves a thorough evaluation of your tree’s health, structure, and condition. The goal is to identify any issues, risks, or potential problems.

The process typically looks like this:

  • Visual assessment: An on-site inspection where technicians check your tree’s health, stability, and overall appearance.
  • Health evaluation: A check that considers your tree’s color, density, and foilage condition to determine an accurate picture of its overall health.
  • Structural inspection: A close examination of your tree’s structure and architecture, including the stability of its trunk and the attachment of branches.
  • Root assessment: An inspection for exposed roots, root damage, and abnormal root growth.
  • Pest and disease inspection: An evaluation that considers pest activity, feeding damage, egg masses, and symptoms of fungal, bacterial, or viral diseases like cankers, lesions, and oozing sap.

Tree Insect Infestation and Tree Disease

Caring for the health of trees includes regular evaluation for insect and disease. Insects can quickly and significantly damage a tree if left unchecked. A thinning canopy, small holes in the bark and discolored leaves are some of the indicators that the experienced staff at Adam’s Tree Service are trained to assess and identify. We have several disease and insect control options for serious threats such as Emerald Ash Borer and other tree ailments that pose a threat to your property.

What Are Common Regional Tree Diseases?

Some of the most common tree diseases affecting our area include:

  • Oak wilt is a fungal disease that affects oak trees. It spreads rapidly through interconnected root systems or by sap-feeding beetles. It’s characterized by leaf wilting, discoloration, and eventual tree death.
  • Verticillium wilt is a soil-borne fungal disease that affects maples, elms, and ash trees. It causes wilting, yellowing, and browning of the tree’s leaves, vascular discoloration, and premature tree death.
  • Anthracnose is a fungal disease affecting sycamore, oak, and maple trees. It causes leaf blight, spotting, and defoliation.
  • Fire blight is a bacterial disease that primarily affects fruit trees in the rose family, including apple and pear trees. It causes wilting, blackening, and a fire-like appearance you can see on an affected tree’s leaves.
  • Powdery mildew is a fungal disease that affects ornamental tree species, including crepe myrtle and flowering dogwood. It appears as a white or powdery gray coating on leaves, shoots, and buds, causing leaf distortion and early leaf drop.

Tree Root Protection

The source of many tree problems starts underground at the root. Poor growth, girdling of roots and other pest problems can often be traced back to a tree that was incorrectly planted in the first place. Removal of soil and mulch from the trunk area and professional root collar excavation are effective processes that a Adam’s Tree Service arborist can use to correct such problems. Specialized root pruning with advanced equipment is also an option for preserving optimal tree health.

Soil Assessment

Proper assessment of the soil at the roots of your trees on your property in Cleburne is an environmentally sound approach to optimal tree care. Trees, shrubs and hedges are less vulnerable to damage from disease and adverse climate conditions when proper soil compaction and nutrient deficiencies are identified and rectified promptly.
