How to know if your tree is expiring or if it requires a tree nurse

Tree problems

Maybe this answers the query of why the tree surgeon calling is a larger pull than before and is very much in the public demand.

In an ideal world you should have basic knowledge of being able to diagnose a tree, so there are some suggestions from experts.

Puddles at the foot of the tree could be a sign that the roots are not absorbing the water properly and this can suggest that there are issues to address. The lack of water absorption could be due to a number of environmental or even biological problems within the tree itself; this is something that you should try to identify as soon as possible. This is because if the tree is not taking up water then it will become depleted of water and become dangerously dehydrated. Talking to a professional might be of help if your tree is drying out, who can provide some expert opinions on what to do.

Spring blossom is perhaps one of the most visually stunning times of the year, so if you see that your tree isn't blooming it will be clear. Not only will your garden be deprived of beauty but it may also mean that your tree could be diseased and needs treatment. This is because flowering is something that most trees do naturally, so if the tree is a flowering tree yet it doesn't flower then it could indicate the need for action. It is better to sort something out as soon as possible but treatment is often a very simple affair and there are a few things you can do; such as adding nutritious peat or some more fertiliser.

Animals use trees for shelter and for food, so it is worth noting whether animals are attracted to the tree as if they are absent that can suggest that there is an imbalance. You can tell this because if animals aren't keen to live there then it isn't offering enough food or shelter, which may mean that they are not growing properly. This is especially true during the summer as it is around this time that animals have come out of hibernation and are more active. So if your tree is looking a little bare of animal life, it is time to investigate.

Sand-like or white soil may signify that the soil is too nutritionally poor for the tree to survive in. Changing the water, soil or fertilizer could be the next step. Adding worms to the grass is another option because they can aid the betterment of the soil quality. Still, in this situation it is suggested that you deal with a specialist with a history of successful projects. Otherwise if you have tree problems then a professional from the Tree Contractors Directory could be able to guide you down the best route.

If you have fruit bearing trees such as plum trees or apple tree in your back garden then if the fruit doesn't grow it can be a sign that something is wrong. This is because trees often flower and then begin to bear fruit once annually, so if they don't it indicates a change. A change in the balance of PH levels in the soil could cause obvious problems or a lack of nutrients being absorbed by the roots. Soil that isn't sufficiently watered could also be a possible explanation, which could be easily resolved by making regular trips with the watering can. This is an important sign to look out for when looking at the health of your trees.

By following the guidance given then you should have little hesitancy in diagnosing if your tree is dying or whether a tree surgeon could ensure a revival takes place.
