Baltimore Tree Services – Trees Catching Disease

Even the toughest of tress are susceptible to getting sick and catching disease. A variety of uncontrollable environmental factors, such as extreme heat or cold, wind and rain could harm a healthy tree. We recommend that you check your trees after a severe storm and as the seasons change. You may think that your trees are healthy because the leaves are green and full. However, there are other signs of damage to trees to look out for. One example of a warning sign is dead wood on the tree. It breaks very easily and makes trees dangerous as branches could easily and unexpectedly fall. Mushrooms and crumbling wood are other examples of warning signs that show decay in trees.

Baltimore Tree Services – Arborist Tree Care Evaluation

An arborist from our team can guide you through these and other warning signs for diseased trees. An arborist is someone who has been specially trained in the art and science of planting, caring for and maintaining trees, as defined by the International Society of Arboriculture. Our arborists are especially familiar with the environmental elements and trees in the Baltimore Maryland area, and we can give you local knowledge to properly treat and restore your trees.

Additionally, National Arborists have identified three tree diseases that are common in the Baltimore Maryland area: Anthracnose, Apple Scab, and Dutch Elm. Anthracnose can cause a loss of foliage in landscape trees and can cause cankers on a tree’s twigs and stems. Apple Scab impacts many varieties of Crabapple trees and harms the foliage. Dutch Elm disease is severe and has sadly eliminated millions of Elm trees from the United States. Our arborists are knowledgeable about these diseases and can easily catch them. We can help you with a treatment plan to prevent such diseases and often restore your trees if they have already been affected.
