Trees offer shade and are an important asset to a property. You should know the common problems that desert trees have so that you will know them when you see them. It’s the best way to resolve an issue fast.
Let’s Get Started
If you’re going to leave a big stub with a little bit of branches coming off of it, remove it. Don’t do this.
Mistletoe is a big problem in desert trees. The dark spots in this tree are clumps of mistletoe. It is a parasite that is carried from tree to tree by birds. It will often take hold in a tree that is already stressed, diseased or declining. So, if you see this, the tree already has problems .
Wrong Tree Wrong Place
Having a tree planted too close to a building, wall, sidewalk or driveway will cause roots to start lifting the wall, sidewalk or drive. Roots can also cause sewer problems. And, that can become a costly repair. Plus, lifted sidewalks are a trip hazard. Always plant a tree with enough room to grow. Remember that a tree’s roots grow to approximately double the size of it’s canopy.
