Need some basic info about the early detection of issues affecting tree health? This resource provides a nice overview of what you should see when a tree is healthy and thriving.

The biggest advantage of regularly having your trees or yard inspected is that it’s a preventive measure which will not only improve the health of trees, but also offer a safeguard against future issues that can develop over time in an unhealthy tree. These are some of the most common issues we are able to detect when doing a tree inspection, all of which can be addressed easily and affordably if caught early enough:

  • Structural issues
  • Cracked branches
  • Soil health
  • Split trunks
  • Root rot & decay
  • Fungal issues
  • Pests & disease

In some cases, all that’s required is pruning or tree trimming to ensure that the tree has the necessary space and access to nutrients that will help it flourish. Other times, an inspection may reveal that there is a structural issue with the tree, which can be addressed with cabling or bracing to stabilize it. Another potential hazard that can be discovered is unhealthy soil, which can be particularly problematic.

The three factors mentioned above are all integral to the providing a healthy atmosphere in which trees can develop healthily and naturally, all of which can be quickly and easily diagnosed by the trained eye of an experienced arborist.
