Identifying issues early
Often by the time a tree shows outward signs of distress like early loss of leaves or decay, the underlying issue has already progressed to the late stages. As experts in local conditions and tree problems, Bartlett arborists meet with property-owners to provide tree and shrub inspections. This process is invaluable in uncovering issues before they cause serious damage.
During an inspection, an arborist can check the overall health of the trees, look for signs of pest and disease infestations, identify any structural problems, and determine soil requirements. Based on the information found, the arborist will then make recommendations on any treatments required. Much like a doctor's checkup, this type of visit is essential to maintaining healthy trees.

- It looks like my giant sequoia is dying! It’s about 25 years old and 40 feet tall. It looks like 80% of the healthy thick dark bark is missing, leaving a bright tan sort of fuzzy wood. What is left looks like it’s dry rotting. I don’t see any insects. I’d love to find a way to treat it if possible. Might you be able to diagnose this severe bark loss?
- We have a stretch of six to eight feet tall Emerald Green Arborvitae which, this year, have a lot of brown foliage in the center of the tree.
