Here are some details ways to tell if your tree is dying and needs tree care:
Leaning Tree - This is caused most of the time due to damage and weakened roots. If untreated, the tree can fall on power lines and vehicles.
Naked Branches - If you notice your tree is not producing leaves during the right time of year, your tree may have trunk or root damage.
Loss of Bark - Bark will fall off causing holes from insects in your tree when your tree is dying. If you see bark beetles, your tree is most likely dead and requires removal before infecting other surrounding trees.
Mushrooms - When you see mushrooms or toadstools on your tree, this means that the wood is decaying or your tree in dying from the inside.
