A common landscaping oversight that many Connecticut home owners make is not paying enough attention to the health of the trees that inhabit their property. When you are focused on providing the best care for your lawn and garden, it is easy to overlook the most obvious object on your landscape. Trees are an important aspect of your landscape because they will add value to your property and provide the necessary shade that can help keep your house or commercial business cool in the summertime. Taking the proper measures to maintain the health of your trees is very important. The landscape professionals at Affordable Landscape and Tree Service of Hamden, Connecticut are experienced in understanding the appropriate steps you must take in order to keep the trees on your property flourishing all year round. We have put together a list of symptoms that may signal that your trees are in poor health and may need immediate care to prevent it from dying.
Damage to the trunk of your tree
If you notice that cracks or rotting are beginning to form in the base of the trunk area of your tree, then your tree may be experiencing some health problems. As years pass, the original bark of a tree will ultimately fall off of the tree and a new layer of bark will appear. If the new layer of bark is not surfacing and a polished level of wood remains on the surface layer of your tree, this is an obvious sign that the health of your tree is in jeopardy. The bark of a tree acts as a vessel to transport nutrients throughout the tree, so without bark, your tree will not receive the necessary nutrients it needs in order to survive.
Signs of dead wood within branches
During the spring and summer months, if you notice that some of your branches have leaves, while other branches are bare, it is an apparent sign that your tree is in poor health. The majority of tree will shed their leaves during the fall season, however dead branches will occasionally leave their leafs hanging well into winter months.
A tree that is healthy has the capability to acclimate and combat the harshest seasonal elements, from the freezing cold of winter to the dry hot conditions of summer. However just like people, trees can be subject to disease and can get sick and potentially die if they are not cared for properly. Having a landscape for your property, which is completely free of disease is very difficult to obtain because there are so many different types of disease carrying pests and organisms that can potentially infect your tree.
