This page looks at the signs to watch out for if you think your trees are diseased. If you have any concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
The following are indicators that something may be wrong with the trees at your Exeter home or premises:
Our tree surgeons at Kingfisher Tree Services begin each investigation with tree surveys, considering every aspect of the tree and its current state. We can spot problematic signs easily, something the general public may overlook, so we strongly advise calling in the experts if you’re worried about your trees. You may also like to talk to us about our tree cutting, hedge trimming, and tree removal services.
Look for dry and cracked leaves. If you see holes in them, the chances are you have an infestation of wood-boring insects. Another sign that something is wrong is the failure of fresh leaves to appear in the spring, leaving bare branches. Dead leaves that remain on the branches and don’t fall are another sign of something wrong. Remember, healthy trees will always shed their leaves to make way for new ones.
Have you noticed any peeling bark? Our tree surgeons can tell a lot from a tree’s bark and examine it closely when conducting surveys in Exeter. If the bark's internal fibres are exposed, call us at Kingfisher Tree Services so we can assess the tree’s condition. The trunk also provides us with plenty of information. There shouldn’t be any cracks or holes in the trunk; if the bark has previously fallen away, new and healthier bark should be growing.
Our tree surgeons will always try to save a tree or hedge by removing the areas where decay or disease has occurred, using our trusted tree-cutting and hedge-trimming methods. It may be necessary, however, to carry out our tree removal service instead for health and safety.
