Tree Disease

A wet spring may seem like Nature’s gift to landscape. After all, trees are soaking in all the water they can as they wake up for the season.  To keep your trees and plants healthy this spring, prevention is often the best protection against diseases. We should always find symptoms of common tree diseases to look out for this spring – and learn what to do if you find them.

Trees are also prone to diseases and require a proper treatment. It gets difficult to identify diseases in tree because the cause of them are microbial organisms and they spread by microscopic growth and spores. Though, the signs and symptoms on the tree become obvious and available to see as the disease takes hold. Tree diseases can affect any part of the tree, including the tree as whole. For example, we have leaf spot, leaf blotch, needle cast, scab and blister, defoliation and yellowing or chlorosis as named symptoms. Stem canker and galls, trunk and root rot are also very common tree disorders.
