Great job they removed a big tree stump on our property with no problem and at a better price than the others guys wanted to charge us. Driscoll Tree Service team was on time and had the right equipment and got right to work.

4 Signs of Tree Root Damage

Trees are valuable additions to any landscape and offer various environmental benefits. Regular care is critical to maintaining healthy and durable trees, like most living things. If you suspect deterioration in your trees, the best solution is to hire a professional tree service. While the damage may not be severe, it usually shows an underlying issue that becomes more pronounced in the long run. Driscoll Tree Service has seasoned arborists with extensive experience ready to assess, detect, diagnose, and address trivial telltale signs before your trees succumb and die. Here are four signs you have damaged roots.

Leaf Scorch

Scorched leaves are brown and shriveled. A range of things causes this, but lack of sufficient water is often the reason for the deterioration. Roots transfer essential nutrients and water to other parts of the tree, but damaged roots can’t perform this vital task, which affects the tree’s health. As mentioned, leaf scorch is caused by various factors, and hiring a tree care company to pinpoint the problem is important. We use industry-standard equipment and experience to ensure the root of the leaf scorch is detected and addressed before wreaking havoc on other parts of the tree.

Fungal Infections

Fungal infections can compromise tree roots, resulting in diseases like root rot which percolates through the entire root system. It can be challenging for homeowners to detect root rot in the initial stages of infection, hence the need to schedule routine inspections with a reputable tree service. This prevents us from spreading upwards into the canopy and consuming the whole tree. Severe cases of fungal infections usually result in the growth of mushrooms and conks around the base of the tree. If you see any of these signs, please call a professional.

Slow Growth

Steady growth is a sign of healthy roots. While this may depend on the tree species, soil type, and nutrients, we recommend checking the roots in most cases. This is critical if you regularly water and fertilize your trees. Damaged roots can’t absorb moisture and nutrients needed for healthy growth, leading to stunted development. A tree care company has the tools and expertise to determine the cause of slow growth and recommend long-term solutions. Before attempting DIY alternatives to salvage a tree growing smaller than expected, consult a trusted tree service for advice.

Branch Dieback

When branches lack sufficient sustenance, they die. The roots connect the tree’s vascular system, which carries nutrients and water from the ground to the branches. If a section of the roots is damaged, the corresponding section of branches will suffer from dieback. It is advisable to schedule a maintenance inspection with a tree care company when you detect deterioration. Identifying minor signs of damage goes a long way in salvaging the tree and preventing an untimely death.
