There are trees all over the state of Oregon and most likely in your yard or property. Trees not only provide beauty and shade, but they also boost privacy and provide a habitable place that different creatures call home. With all of the benefits trees provide, it’s our job to take care of them. That’s why we’d like to provide you with the following signs it may be time to contact a certified arborist in Corvallis, Oregon if you notice anything troubling with a tree.
Dead or Broken Branches
A certified arborist should evaluate trees with dead or broken branches. Why? A strong gust of wind or heavy rainstorm could cause them to come crashing down unexpectedly at any moment. Branches falling from tall heights can damage your home or car and injure or kill someone below. That’s why it’s critical to remove these types of branches to prevent property damage or save a life. Furthermore, it’s extremely important to have these branches removed before any inclement weather to help reduce the chances of them falling.
A Broken Tree
This should come as a no-brainer. If you have a tree with a broken trunk, it’s essential to have a certified arborist remove it as soon as possible. This usually happens when other symptoms are left ignored or result from a strong storm.
A Thin Canopy
A tree with sparse leaves and little foliage is a sign of alarm. Taken care of early, there is a good chance a tree will survive and become healthy again. At Westcoast Tree Care, our certified arborist will diagnose whether or not a tree will recover or if it needs to be removed. We will then go through the steps concerning the services that need to take place for either situation.
A Tree with Mushrooms
If you spot mushrooms growing on or around the base of the tree, this can indicate the tree is decaying from the inside out. If a tree is decaying, it has an increased risk of falling over at any time. That’s why it’s essential to have it diagnosed by a certified arborist as soon as possible.
If a tree is missing large areas of bark (2-feet wide or more), this can be an indication of disease or insect infestation. That’s why it’s critical to identify the problem and correct it with the help of a certified arborist in Corvallis, Oregon.
A Tree Without Leaves
A tree with all brown leaves when other trees around it have healthy green leaves is another indication of a serious problem. Unless it’s lying dormant for the winter, a tree without leaves is probably already dead. However, only a certified arborist will be able to make this diagnosis.
