Tree health check up
Checking a tree's health may not only be subjective for a novice but determining the health of a tree is complicated and should be done by an expert. Still, there are things you can do that will alert you to tree health problems.
Ask yourself these questions when inspecting a tree:
Is the current year's growth much less than past years' growth? Although fast growth does not necessarily mean good health, a dramatic reduction in growth rate may be an indication of poor health.
Are there dead limbs, odd colors on leaves and bark or a patchy crown? These tree symptoms can be the first indicators that a tree is unhealthy and should be inspected in detail.
Remember that planting a healthy tree in the beginning is the best way to assure its future health!
