Signs of a Sick Tree

Is my tree sick?

You’re looking at your tree and you notice something just doesn’t seem right. Whether it’s the leaves, the trunk, or its just lost its overall glow, you know your tree needs help. Chances are you have a sick tree. The next questions become – What disease does my tree have? How did my tree get sick? And most importantly, what can I do to help my tree recover?

Trees in Wisconsin are threatened by diseases, pests, shifts in weather, and nutrient deficiencies in soils among other factors. To identify why your tree is sick, you’ll need help from a Wisconsin Certified Arborist. After inspecting the symptoms of your tree, our team will give a diagnosis and recommendations on how to bring your tree back to its full health.

Signs your tree may be sick:

  • Early leaf loss
  • Leaf discoloration
  • Bark falling off
  • Dead or decaying branches
  • Needle loss
  • Infestations of insects in your tree

Sick Tree Treatment

Treatment for sick trees may include sprays, trunk injections, soil restoration, root collar excavation, or others. How to treat your sick tree will vary depending on the type of tree and its symptoms. Bringing your tree back to health could take a few months up to a few years of treatment to get it back to its full potential. Your Wachtel Tree Science Certified Arborist will ensure you understand the entire process.
