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.

I had a large oak tree taken down near power lines and an outdoor kitchen. I was well informed about the work they were going to do and how long it should take. The team was professional, fast and dropped the tree safely. They used a bucket truck and climber to trim branches from the top half of the tree with no damage to the yard around the tree.  I am extremely pleased with Driscoll Tree service work.

Brown or Black Spots on Tree Leaves

As a homeowner, landscaping enhances curb appeal, safety, and property value. This includes scheduling routine inspections with a professional tree service provider. Trees provide many benefits to your home and the ecosystem, hence the need for regular care. There are many telltale signs of deterioration to look out for, but the most noticeable are brown or black spots on the leaves. If your trees show discoloration on the foliage, it may be time to call Driscoll Tree Service. Our certified arborists leverage extensive industry knowledge and experience to inspect, diagnose, and address the problem before things get out of hand.

The Cause of Brown and Black Spots

secondary

Although there are many causes of discoloration or spotting in leaves, the most likely culprit is a fungal infection. However, hiring a tree care company helps to rule out other causes, such as bacteria or the lack of nutrients. If you prefer a more hands-on approach to tree care, consult an expert for guidance and advice on addressing the problem.

Usually, the infection is ornamental and will end on its own. Call a tree service provider immediately if the spots don’t disappear after several days or spread throughout the tree. Fungal infections spread with time, and delaying treatment can wreak havoc in your yard. We provide emergency tree services to mitigate further damages and costly repairs under challenging situations.

Symptoms You Might Notice

When assessing the symptoms, account for the tree species, size, shape and number of brown and black spots. Some trees’ spots are conspicuous and don’t resemble the leaf tissue. Some common causes that present similar symptoms, like fungal infections, include aphids, mites, scale, and whiteflies.

If the blemishes appear on the bottom of the leaves, and the leaves appear dry and lustrous, the likely cause might be nematodes or thrips. However, spots different from the leaf tissue show a more severe problem. A pH imbalance, blight, mold, or dirty water could infect your trees. These may seem minor, but delaying treatment can cause devastating damage.

What You Should Do

Black and brown spots affect your trees’ aesthetics and the premises’ overall quality. If a tree in your yard develops an infection, rake the diseased leaves on the ground and remove infected foliage on the tree. This is not a cure, but an effective way to prevent spreading.

The next step is to keep the leaves as dry as possible. While this may seem challenging during rainy seasons, minimizing overhead irrigation can help. We also recommend working with a professional arborist to ensure you use the right fungicide and take preventive measures. Even if you are not concerned about the appearance of your trees, regular checks by a tree care company ensure durable and healthy trees. Contact us at Driscoll Tree Service and schedule a consultation with our experts. We provide top-notch services, including planting, maintenance, and removal, at competitive rates.
