While you have likely had a tree growing in your yard or around your complex over the years, you may never have to identify trees that require emergency treatment or removal. It is important to be able to see the dead or diseased trees because they can be dangerous once they become weak.
If you do not have time to take a look at your trees, you may hire professionals for tree assessment through A-CUT tree services.
What to look for
Warning signs may be different at different times of the year. For example, in the spring and summer, you have to look for the presence or absence of leaves. If a tree has no leaves at all, or if it seems dry, withered, and Browning leaves are falling mass – which is a good sign that the tree was dead.
Test for elasticity. Springy branches that are resistant to abuse indicate a healthy tree. Conversely, if the branch is locked from the right, the tree is in a weakened state.
Every tree bark – dead or alive – would feel rough to the touch. Try to do a piece of bark – that of a live tree will resist a bit and wanted to stay in place. Bark dead will feel dryer than usual, rupture more easily, and will peel apart in your hands with a little pressure.
