Fungi and Mushrooms

Broken or Falling Limbs

The tree could be dying from extensive damage or a disease. It is a good idea to ask a professional or an opinion here as the entire tree may need to be felled to avoid any unnecessary stress and risk.
Leaves Falling Early or Turning Brown
The leaves on your favourite trees can be a good indication of the health of your trees. If there is strange or unusual things occurring such as the leaves turning brown or falling earlier than usual – it could indicate a wide variety of things. These include disease, pest infestation, malnutrition, and damage. A professional can assess the tree and make a proper diagnosis as well as suggest the best way to proceed.
Leaning Trees And Bare Sides
If your tree is beginning to lean to one direction or is bare of branches and leaves on one side it could be an indication that the tree may have some root damage – this is an issue because the tree has been weakened and is likely not receiving enough nutrients or water through its root system. This can lead to a weak tree that is more susceptible to damage.
