Tree diseases cause unsightly blemishes on your trees and even death if not controlled and treated. Weeds can also spread diseases to your trees causing a huge amount of loss to any property owner without their knowledge. They grow out of place and become competitive. They end up depriving your trees of proper nutrients, thus making them an easy target for diseases.
Pay close attention to your trees
Prior to the analysis, it is important to have knowledge of what is normal for a specific tree species. Growth characteristics of the specified tree should be well identified. Some trees’ leaves shed during the fall and should not be categorized as abnormal, hence, should not raise alarm. We perform a careful analysis and help you understand the cause and proper treatment.
Blossoms, leaves, and barks are just a few of the parts that one can use to identify tree diseases. Some diseases occur internally and take the time to be manifested externally. That is why our company was established. To help you, our client, avoid worse, devastating conditions for your plants.
Infectious vs Non-Infectious Diseases
Trees suffer from both infectious diseases, which are caused by living things, and noninfectious tree diseases which are caused by nonliving agents; thus cannot be transmitted from one tree or plant to another. Most common nonliving causative agents are pollution, chemicals, mostly within the soil, mechanical injuries, extreme temperature and moisture extreme.
Certain diseases only affect specific tree species. Changes in the environment and season also trigger some diseases.
Common Tree Diseases
Some of the common tree diseases include Anthracnose, Apple scab, Diplodia tip blight, the lethal Yellowing of Palm Trees and Cedar rusts. If not identified and treated in time, most of these diseases lead to the death of part or even an entire tree. Our team of experts regularly check your trees and plants for any diseases and provides the needed treatment.
Disease Analysis Process
Our company uses a step-wise routine to deduce the proper analysis. After identifying the tree, our experts look for any previous abnormalities and establish a pattern of abnormality, if any. This helps in short-listing possible causes for trees in the same environment. The land is then examined to identify any factors within the soil that could have caused the abnormalities.
Different parts of the tree, majorly the roots, leaves, trunk, and branches are then checked and professionally examined. If the crown shows any signs of wounding, then high chances are the disease used that as an entry point. Odd color roots also point out a high probability for diseases. The position and appearance of the leaves also play a major role in deciding the type of causative agent, whether biotic or abiotic.
What comes after the problem is found
After diagnosing the problem, our company offers appropriate treatment options. Such include sanitation, whereby we get rid of the infected parts of the tree or the whole tree if it is past redemption. We also advice our clients on the best fungicides in the market and how to use them efficiently to avoid similar problems in the future. Additionally, we show you how to protect target hosts via pruning, watering, and mulching. This consequently maintains proper health of the tree.
It is therefore advisable to ensure your trees and plants are healthy. Most healthy plants have a resistive characteristic to fight attacks. Unfortunately, a large number of trees in the urban environment are of poor health and are under stress. This reduces the ability of the trees to fend off attacks.
