Do you have a tree in your yard that’s seen better days? If you would like to save a dying tree instead of removing it, there are a few steps you can take to try and revive it. If you’re unsure of how to do it or if the tree is simply too big for you to manage safely on your own, Quality Tree Service is here to help. However, even if you don’t think you can handle pruning and trimming on your own, you can still diagnose the problem and determine whether the tree is salvageable.
Diagnose the Problem
The tree in question may be dying due to environmental factors, such as lack of water or sunlight, or internal problems, such as a parasitic infestation or fungal growth. The tree experts at Quality Tree Service can help you determine the cause of the problem and let you know whether the tree has a chance of surviving. If the tree has significant fungal growth or a potentially dangerous insect problem, then it may be best to have it removed before the problem escalates.
Pruning and Trimming
Quality Tree Service can identify the parts of the tree that require trimming or pruning. Doing this in the right spots can encourage the tree to grow in a new way, potentially leading to healthier growth with some time. We can remove dead branches and help the tree take better advantage of available sunlight, if possible.
Watering and Fertilizing
Once your tree is pest and fungus-free and has been professionally trimmed, you can start the rehabilitation process with an appropriate watering schedule and fertilizer treatment. The Medford area sees quite a bit of rain, so lack of water is rarely an issue for most of the trees in the area. However, if the soil on your property is of lower quality, the tree may need a nutrient boost from the right fertilizer to reach peak condition again.
Trees are an essential part of the ecosystem and provide homeowners with many different benefits. If you’re unsure whether you can save a dying tree or want professional assistance in an attempt to do so, we can help.
