How do I know if my tree is dying?

The first symptom you may notice is excessive leaf drop.  If your tree is suddenly losing leaves unseasonably, it may be sick.  Another aspect of tree health is the branches.  Falling branches is another sign that your tree is unhealthy or dying. A sick tree will drop bare, leafless branches.  The bark of your tree should be soft and pliable.  A sick tree will have brittle and flaking bark.  Bald spots are another symptom sick trees can exhibit.  If a tree's root are constantly waterlogged or damaged by heavy vehicles or cuts from lawn mowers, the entire tree could be at risk.  Look for signs of sogginess, such as fungus or wood ears.

It vitally important to evaluate the health of your trees.  It's important to know how to spot the various signs of an unhealthy tree, to prevent death of trees and damage to your property.
