Do your trees need to see a doctor?
Mature garden trees can add shade, contribute towards a calm and relaxing environment and add value to your home – but only if they’re healthy. Here are 4 signs that they might need some professional attention.
Often, you don’t realise there is something wrong with your garden tree until it’s too late – and then it may have to be removed.
Here are 4 signs to watch out for to protect your investment
- Bare branches - a tree without leaves in the spring or summer months is a sign that something may be wrong
- Loosely hanging or obviously brittle branches
- Small mushrooms or fungi sprouting on the trunk
- Cracks, hollows or bulges in the trunk
Trees usually decay from the inside out, so it can be difficult to tell is something is wrong unless you know the subtle signs. A regular, professional inspection of mature trees on your property means that any problems will be spotted early, and the tree has more chance of being saved.
