Tree Disease & Treatment

Call Today

As shrubs and trees mature, following a proactive maintenance program will assist in ensuring a plant’s continued longevity and health. Depending upon the species and age, an aging tree gradually will weaken because of general decline and decay.  Before feeding or pruning a mature tree, it’s vital that you speak to a highly qualified arborist to assess a tree’s structural integrity and identify all signs of decay or defects.
Many issues associated with decay and pests in older trees may be prevented by following the correct tree health care practices. Sprinklers, incorrect use of lawn equipment, mulch, pesticides, and fertilizers may cause damage to a tree and open up the door for fungi, bacteria, pests, and rot.  A common problem seen repeatedly in landscaping includes the practice of turbo mulching or placing a massive mound of mulch around a tree’s trunk. Too much mulching leads to the retention of excessive moisture around a tree’s trunk, which leads to premature decay.  Also, it creates a favorable environment for harmful insects and also can promote shallow root systems.

Tree Disease Identification 


While some tree diseases are simple to spot, like bug bites or tree spotting, other ones are more hidden and will require professional knowledge. Here we go over the most popular diseases in trees that might try and attack the tree:

Witches’ Broom - This is a tree disease which causes a deformed physical appearance. Witches Broom appears precisely as its name suggests: Like a dense pile of sticks growing from one point, resulting in a shape resembling a broom. A Witches’ Broom frequently may be cut out from an impacted tree. But the tree ought to be carefully evaluated by an arborist to figure out if it’s disease or pest-related.

Gall - This is a condition which manifests itself as abnormal growths upon various spaces of a tree. The unsightly bumps vary in color and size, yet typically are described as a bladder or a pouch-like growth. The majority of galls are created by mites and insects to store eggs. While they’re very unsightly, the majority of galls are mainly an aesthetic issue and do very little to no damage to a tree. 

Mildew - Mildew can form a white coating on the surface of a leaf and damage the overall health of the leaf. Mildew may successfully be treated by fungicides that are specialized to control the outbreak of mildew.
Leaf Rust - A common disease that is found in plants and trees is rust fungus. It’ll work to quietly weaken the photosynthesis system of a plant, which leaves the leaves with yellow-brown, unattractive spots. Leaf rust may be combatted through using fungicides and/or eliminating already-damaged leaves.
