Tree Root Damage

Tree Root Damage
on April 18, 2016 in Tree Health Warnings, Uncategorized

The health and longevity of trees depends on the health of their roots. Root damage is one of the major causes of tree failure. Trees with root damage may fall over due to the roots no longer being able to support their weight, or supply water and nutrients. Indications of root problems include: discoloration and reduced size of the tree canopy, branches dying, leaning, visible dead roots, broken roots, and the presence of fungi. These symptoms may be undetectable to the untrained eye. To determine how much damage the root system of your tree has sustained, consult with our arborist to find out how much of the rooting area was affected and what can be done to improve the situation. Stressed trees are more prone to attack by certain pests. We will also inspect your trees for signs of insects or diseases.
