In the winter it can be hard to tell when a tree is diseased but in the spring, when all the nearby trees are blooming or growing leaves yet your tree remains bare, it’s a lot more obvious.
Other signs of tree disease:
- Bark abnormalities such as missing bark, holes from wood-boring insects, mushroom growth
- Leaning (can be a sign of root damage)
- Deep vertical cracks on the trunk
- Distorted or discolored leaves
- Large clusters of white spots (insect infestation)
If you suspect your tree may be diseased, don’t hesitate to have it removed before it effects other trees on your property. Contact Woodchuck Tree Service today at 716-774-8717 or get your free quote.
