Common Signs Of Tree Problems
If you’re like most people, you probably don’t think about the health of your trees or shrubs much beyond their appearance. But just like human beings, these plants can get sick or die from a variety of problems. Some of these issues can be easy to spot, while others might go unnoticed until they’re so severe that it’s time to call in an expert.
A common sign of tree illness is a yellowing of the leaves on the trees. This is a sign that the plant has lost its ability to absorb sunlight and convert it into food energy for the leaves. This can occur because of environmental changes, soil deficiency, disease, and insect infestation.
Often, this is only a temporary situation that will pass and the tree will resume its normal growth. However, if the problem persists or the tree starts to wilt or fall over, it is likely an indicator of a serious issue.
Another possible sign of a serious issue is if the roots of the tree are rotting and bleeding. This can happen when a fungus infection enters the tree’s roots, which are vital for absorbing water and nutrients so the tree can thrive. The affected roots will begin to rot and may need to be removed.
Bark peeling and flaking is also a sign of a serious problem. Just like the skin on your body, a tree’s bark is the protective layer that protects the inside of the tree from harsh weather conditions. The deteriorating or flaking bark can be a clue that the tree isn’t receiving adequate nutrients from the environment or is suffering from an infectious disease, which will eventually kill the entire tree if left untreated.
A white haze covering the twigs of your tree could be a sign of scale insects, which are parasites that feed on the internal fluids of your plant. These bugs can appear as flat, small 1/16″ long flecks or larger bumps that are about the size of a ladybug.
If you notice dark or odd shaped spots on your tree’s leaves, it could be a sign of a fungal or bacterial disease that is causing the leaves to wilt and die. These areas can be black, yellow or green and can be spotted or sunken in, depending on what’s causing the infection.
It’s important to identify this problem as quickly as possible, and a professional arborist can help you assess the problem and determine the best course of action. This can include identifying the species of your tree and determining whether it’s in need of pruning or removal.
A leaning tree is a sign of structural damage to the trunk, according to Chris Meyer, an arborist in New York City. If a large tree leans more than 15 degrees, it’s usually due to wind or root damage and should be assessed as soon as possible.
Factors That Affect the Cost of Tree Services
If you have a tree that’s fallen and needs to be removed, or are looking to get some trimming done, getting an accurate price quote is key.
The cost of Tree Services depends on a variety of factors, including the size and condition of the tree, where it’s located, and its accessibility. Some factors are relatively obvious and others are not as apparent, but they all play a role in determining how much you’ll pay to have the tree removed. While we can’t give you an exact quote without seeing your trees, here are some things that can affect the price.
Size of the Tree: Generally speaking, smaller trees are cheaper to trim than larger ones. This is because it takes less time and technical expertise to trim a small tree than an old, large one.
Type of Tree: Generally speaking, a hardy, thick-branched tree like a pine is less expensive to trim than a soft, gnarled tree with thin branches. Also, if you have an older, tall tree that has a lot of overgrowth or decaying limbs, the cost of trimming it will be higher than a healthy tree.
Location: Generally speaking, a tree that is near traffic and power lines is going to be more difficult to remove than one that’s in an open yard with no obstructions, such as fences, sheds or other buildings. This will make it more costly for a tree service to come out and handle the removal.
Species: A tree that’s more likely to be damaged by pests or fungi may cost more to remove than one that isn’t prone to those issues. These trees can be a little more complicated to work with and therefore, they’ll take longer and require more equipment to complete the removal.
Height: The taller the tree, the more difficult and dangerous it is to work with and the more expensive it will be. The height of a tall tree will have an impact on how many workers will be needed to complete the removal, as well as the type of equipment required. All of these things affect the price involved.
Tree Diameter: Generally speaking, the diameter of a tree trunk is proportional to its height. This isn’t necessarily a factor when it comes to how much it will cost to grind a stump, but it can be if you have an unusually wide tree that is more likely to break or fall.
Health of the Tree: Sometimes, it can be cheaper to remove a diseased or dead tree than a healthy one because it’s weaker and easier to work with. It’s best to get an arborist like us to come out and inspect the tree before you pay for its removal.
Then, they’ll give you a quote for their price. They’ll also tell you if they’ll provide any additional services, such as stump grinding or limb chipping.
