||Excessive crowding of trees: Will cause them to grow tall and spindly, weaker and less desirable. Remove less vaulable trees to allow the remaining trees to grow properly.
||Thick Canopy: Allowing too much wind resistance and excessive weight. Selectively thin out canopy by reducing the weight and allowing wind to pass through will promote a much healthier tree.
||Leaning Trees: With surface roots and heavy canopy’s, leaning trees can become an emanate danger to people and property. Lighten up or remove depending on situation.
||Boring Insects: Borers are attracted to unhealthy trees, burrowing in and laying eggs inside the trunk. The best defense against these pests is to keep your trees healthy and unstressed.
||Trees growing too close to a structure: This can cause damage to roofs and foundations. To alleviate possible damage, trim back limbs from over roof and if necessary cut roots growing toward the structure.
||Non Native/ Invasive Trees: These trees rob much needed nutrition from native specimen trees. Remove these trees and give life back to your more valuable trees.
||Hardwood Stem Diseases: Such as hispidus canker, hypoxylon cankers, root rot, etc. Remove diseased trees or treat if possible.
||Tree trimming by unqualified personal: This results in excessive stress on trees and can sometimes caused un-repairable damage. Always rely on a ISA Certified Arborist before this happens, he or she can offer solutions to correct the damage.
||Cracks between dominate and co-dominate stems: These cracks can be caused by too much weight and inclement weather conditions. Lighten up each stem and possibly install cables for support.
||Vines or Ivy Covering Canopy: Vines add excessive weight and wind resistance. Cut or remove ivy or vines to reduce weight and keep your trees healthy.
