Hollow Trees


Cracks and holes are a sure sign that a tree is starting to hollow out and is a sign of a structural integrity issue. A tree can become hollow from various forms of stress or damage: storm, insect infestation, bacteria or fungi. Older trees have weak branches which can break off easily, making this part of the tree at risk of forming a cavity. Any large wound on your tree usually leads to decay. If the tree is old, unhealthy, leaning, and has a large hollow area, you may need to consider cutting it down. We do not recommend filling the hollow part, it will damage the tree by slowing down the development of included bark – a natural healing process for your tree.

Remember, some trees are prone to hollowing, like silver maples, hackberry or ash. Some trees, like oaks, for example, do a good job of protecting themselves from decay; fungi only rot away the dead wood in the center of the tree and the newer growth is protected by “compartmentalizing” the decay.

A well-maintained tree has a better chance with dealing with stress, making it much less likely to become hollow. Not every tree with hollow areas needs to be removed, if you’re unsure about your tree, ask our arborist for a proper assessment. Tree species, tree health, size of the hollow area, and the location of your tree will play a big role in assessing the risk factor of a tree with internal decay.
