A dying tree in a forest is nature running its course. However, a dying tree in your landscape can create issues for other trees and anything else nearby.
If you have trees near or around your house, it's a good idea to watch their progress and to take action if you believe your tree is dying.
First, it's vital to be sure your tree is very sick. This might sound like common sense, but some trees will show signs of illness as part of their seasonal cycles. Some trees will temporarily appear sick because of normal seasonal dieback. Therefore, the first step to identifying if a tree is dying is to classify the tree to ensure it's not just acting like it's supposed to.
It's also vital to remember that not all reasons for tree sickness are pest-related. Illnesses can be the result of diseases, adverse weather (storms and droughts), and improper planting. It is best to schedule a tree inspection with a Harrisburg arborist.
