Dealing with Sick Trees | Cleveland Heights Tree Service

cleveland heights oh tree removal company
Is it time to contact a Cleveland Heights tree removal and service company? When a tree that you believe to be big and strong suddenly starts to look sickly, with an infection or an infestation, you’ll want to know which one is affecting your tree on your Cleveland Heights property.

Your first question, however is probably along the lines of, how can I prevent the symptoms from getting worse? The answer to this and other similar questions can be summed up in two words: early detection, followed by: be proactive. If the invasion has traveled too deeply into the tree, the damage is irreparable and the likely solution is tree removal.

Signs of an infected or infested tree:

Out-of-season discoloration – One of the first signs you may notice is a change in leaf color. A damaged system blocks nutrients from reaching the leaves. This can be a bit deceiving as seasonal trees will also show browning leaves right before winter. In this case, there is no need to worry, this is normal and is part of the tree’s cycle into its dormant state. If you notice yellowing or brown leaves in say, the spring, then there might be an issue. Other trees like evergreens are meant to stay green year-round. For these types of trees, the evidence will be obvious.

Mushroom growth – Mushrooms are the result of underlying fungus. While not all fungus is bad for a tree’s health, more often than not, mushroom growth means trouble. Whether a fungus finds its way into the roots of the tree through an opening in the bark or directly through the roots, once it enters the tree’s system it begins to nonstop feed on the tree’s tissue. If the fungus has already weakened the base of the tree, the best option is tree removal.
