Tree Lifecycle Health Issues

Problems take advantage of tree and shrub weaknesses. The best way to avoid those issues is to assess your landscape’s overall health on a regular basis and take any necessary steps to mitigate them before they turn into major disasters. Setting up the landscape for success takes many forms.

Plant right and plant well: Selecting a tree or shrub appropriate to the conditions it will grow in is the important first step. Planting it correctly means it begins its life in your landscape with the best opportunity to thrive.

Dish on dirt: If you live in an urban subdivision, chances are the native topsoil was scraped off before construction. Trucks and other heavy equipment may have compacted the soil. Knowing what soil structure you’re planting in helps you take actions so your plants will grow well.

Feed and water with care: Not all soils carry the nutrients your plants need. Heavy clay means water runs off rather than absorbs to the root zone. Fertilization or the addition of organic matter are good proactive approaches in these cases.

Trim or prune to type: The growth habits and physiology of plants should be considered before planting. Once the tree or shrub is in place, trimming or pruning it into something it’s not creates possible vulnerability. Understanding how your plants grow means those cuts can be planned for maximum benefit.

Address damage or pests promptly: Storm damage, mechanical damage, soil disturbances and infestations all produce risks and weaknesses for our landscape plants. These problems should be addressed immediately with professional assistance from a Denver tree company.

Remove risky plants completely: When it is clear a tree or shrub is a risk to the property or its occupants, the safest solution is removal. This includes trunks and stumps to avoid lingering pest or disease issues and tripping hazards.

It is easy to take a wait-and-see attitude – it costs nothing now and hopefully you can put it out of your mind and not worry about what might happen later. Those ‘later’ problems, though, often cost more to solve. It’s best to avoid the problem in the first place.
