Early Fall Color
It’s easy to overlook problems with your trees and shrubs. Sometimes, it’s nearly impossible to identify issues without the help of an arborist. But, there are certain things you should look for that can indicate a serious problem may exist.
This time of year, it’s important to notice any unusual changes in the leaves of your trees. Trees under stress frequently develop autumn coloration early and cast their leaves prematurely. This condition is often associated with serious root and soil disorders. If addressed early, soil or root management treatments like fertilization, proper irrigation and root invigoration, can help remedy issues.
Premature autumn color and leaf drop could also be caused by vascular diseases or certain boring insects. As such, it is important to have an arborist inspect trees to determine the underlying cause of this symptom and recommend appropriate action.
