When Should I Contact a Tree Service?

Trees are a great way to fill your yard with landscaping, provide shade, and make a more pleasing aesthetic to your home.  Like any living organism, sometimes trees can get sick, and start to decline based on age or a possible disease. Trees are particularly affected by certain problems due to the climate, local area plant diseases, and wildlife.  When should you contact a tree service? Below is a list of things to look for that will give you some indication of when to call your local tree service.

Common Tree Problems

Following is a list comprised from tree service companies in the area that gives you an idea of what can be affecting your tree and the warning signs for you to know when to call your local tree service;

Ceratocystis– Is a fungus that grows on trees which will turn the leaves to yellow when the rest of the tree is green.  When you notice leaves starting to turn green and brown and it does not fall you should call your local tree service out to take a look to see if you are plagued by this fungus. This fungus will attack Oak Trees more and sometimes is known as “Oak Wilt”.

Chlorosis– This disease is also commonly a plague of Oak Trees, Pin Oak Trees in Particular.  This is a condition the tree suffers when there is not enough chlorophyll in the leaves, causing the leaves to turn yellow in color which will affect the tree from the top down. Chlorosis is commonly caused by higher acidic rates in soil around the tree.  This is the reason it mostly strikes Pink Oaks because they need this type of soil in order to grow. Chlorosis should be looked at by a tree service professional.

Rhizosphaera Needle– Fungus in the needles surrounding spruce trees.  This fungus then grows up the tree and causes the needles to turn a brown color.  This will cause a very unsightly spruce true in your yard. If you see your spruce tree turning brown and spotty then consider calling a tree service company in your area to come out and take a look.

Stem Roots– Stem roots are roots that grow up and out of the ground and then around the tree trunk.  By doing this you, it prevents the water from getting underneath the tree in order

Japanese Beetles– The most common insect to plague trees in Northern Illinois, the Japanese Beetle will destroy the entire tree.  It feeds on more than 300 species, and during its life cycle as a gurb will devour the root system for a tree and as an adult the leaves and bark.  Infestations usually work its way from the top of the tree to the bottom of the tree, so getting rid of the problem is hard. An excellent tree service company can help you with these little buggers.

Topping– Topping is the only man-made problem on this list.  Topping is cutting down the branches of a tree to much so there is nothing left.  This causes the tree to dry out and not replenish itself. Using a tree service to cut down that front lawn tree is much better than to try it yourself because you can avoid this common problem.
