Unlike other living organisms, it can be hard to spot the signs of a diseased tree in your yard. While some symptoms may be perfectly clear, such as failure to grow new leaves in the springtime, or large limbs falling off, it can be harder to spot the subtle changes when a spruce, pine, maple, fir, or poplar is initially threatened by a tree disease. In Edmonton, one of the best ways to examine a deciduous tree for illness is comparing its foliage and growth to other trees of the same species and of a similar age.
Spotting a diseased tree in Edmonton is best done during spring and autumn, when blooms and foliage changes are both sudden and brilliant.
Examining the health of conifers can mostly be performed year-round, although many types of conifers do undergo somewhat of a dormant period during the winter, so it can be difficult for the layman to gauge a conifer’s health.
Should I Remove a Diseased Tree?
Like many families, the staff at All Season Tree Service loves nothing more than taking a leisurely stroll through the many natural sites and parks Alberta has to offer. Healthy trees are beautiful trees. But, when a tree becomes diseased, it may be necessary to have it removed. Dutch elm disease and other fungal diseases can pass from tree to tree, so it’s always best to remove one to preserve others.
If a tree is beyond any type of remedial effort, it may be best to have it removed. A slowly decaying tree is a welcome mat to termites and other pests. A tree with accelerated decay also poses a threat to your property and family if it were to fall.
