Three Signs Your Tree Needs Professional Care

Trees are an important but often undervalued part of many people's gardens, both in their front and back yards. They come in all shapes and sizes, and unless you are quite well-versed in horticulture and in the danger signs it can be hard to tell when your tree actually needs a little bit of help. Many people just assume that because their trees are so big and tough on the exterior that help is never needed, but that is certainly not the case.

Here are three signs that your tree will present when it needs a professional tree service's help.


If you have lived in your house for a couple of years or even just a couple of months, you should be quite familiar with how your trees and their leaves look. After all, they are hard to miss! Over time, if you start to notice that your tree is not the same color as it used to be, and it is not during the fall or spring, then you may want to get a second opinion. Color is very important to trees, and it displays how successfully it is living. Discoloration should always be taken seriously when it comes to your trees.

Crack In The Trunk

Just because a tree starts to crack or break does not mean it is a goner. These problems, while very visually off-putting, are not fatal for the tree as long as you take steps to counter it. A tree service will be able to tell you how to save your tree, whether that is by binding it back together with strong ropes and clamps or by saving one side of the split tree and trimming the other. Whatever the case may be, you still need to take active steps to ensure that the tree will survive, so don't wait around too long!

Change In Texture Of Bark

You might not know this, but trees can, in fact, get sick. While it is not quite the same thing for trees and humans, when trees do get sick their whole demeanor can change and the outward texture of their bark can be affected. If you notice that your tree is doing much worse for wear lately, and has lost its leaves prematurely or has an odd feeling when you touch it, then there is a good chance it is sick and needs rehabilitation from a professional tree service.
