A Technical Report from The Bartlett Tree Research Laboratories

 Flooding can have many long-term detrimental effects on landscape plants. Flooding impedes the function of tree roots, where the majority of a tree’s energy reserves are stored, with potentially serious physical damage. It also causes detrimental changes in soil nutrient availability and microbial communities present. Long-term flooding eventually leads to root and branch dieback and tree decline. Flooding stress can also increase the susceptibility of plants to serious plant pathogens.
