Like with any new flowers, plants, shrubs, hedges and trees – taking the time to understand how best to look after them will ensure that they always look their best. It’s common for people to believe that trees simply look after themselves, but this is not the case. They can suffer from disease, rot and infestations.
Well-established trees and shrubs, after years of growing well, can start to decline and that is why it is important to get them regularly inspected by a tree surgeon. The following list outlines a few issues that your tree can suffer from.
This issue can be seen on oak trees. It’s a fungal disease of the foliage and stems which covers the surface of the plant. This issue commonly occurs during summer which is caused by dryness at the roots and poor air circulation. Once solution is to add mulching and avoid high-nitrogen products.
Tree often get overlooked during dry spells. If left without water for very long periods they will experience, leaf browning, tree decline and increased susceptibility to insect and disease.
There are cases when trees are not suited to the soil that they have been planted in and become deficient in iron, manganese or different macro and micro nutrients. Nutrient deficiency manifests in the following ways: partial or complete yellowing of leaves, stunted growth, poor flower or fruit production.
This issue is caused by dead leaves and branches as well as mal-pruning. If left un-inspected, the tree can become a hazard to people and pets within the vicinity.
