While trees can be saved from many perceived threats, there are many situations where the seemingly damaged trees need to be removed and, in some instances, with extreme care. Depending on the extent of damage, with so many variables, trees can sustain harm a number of ways. To remedy the damage, professionals offer tree or limb removal, and in some cases emergency tree removal With this in mind, we at 207 Tree Service would like to discuss the primary common reasons as to how trees get damaged.
Nutrient Deficiency in Trees
Simply in an effort to keep your yard neat and clean by picking up leaves, twigs, and bark, you may be potentially causing more harm to your trees without even knowing it. The trees in the forest benefit from growing in soil that is rich in nutrients due to decomposing leaves. As opposed to leaving the leaves in the yard to rot, you can add nutrition back into the soil with proper fertilization and mulching your tree correctly.
Natural or Accidental Fallen Tree Damage
A storm passing through or a lawn mower causing trauma to the tree are all common causes to damaged trees. To provide your trees with optimal care, inspect it regularly for damage and contact a tree expert to diagnose the problem and give treatment advice. To prepare your trees, take the time to plan when the weather forecast predicts a severe storm passing through.
Soil Compaction & Trees
The soil in your yard has likely gotten compacted over time due to all the foot traffic going on. The residual affect has left a stressful environment for your trees to try to grow in from when your house was built, mowing the lawn, and to people walking around. To help with this issue, add organic matter to the soil and do some vertical mulching to replace soil in the root zone.
Tree Pest Infestation
Any weak trees, no matter the cause, will attract pests that generally make the trees deteriorate further and faster. Contact a local expert for treatment if any pests are found as you routinely monitor your trees for pest activity.
Tree Root Growth
When you first planted your trees as tiny saplings, you may not think about how far and wide the roots would spread as the tree grew. Due to structures such as road and the foundation of your house, or even other trees and plant life, the growth of your tree can be restricted. Improving the health of your soil can help roots continue to grow, though in some situations the trees may need to be removed, despite these obstacles in the way, however.
