Common Problems You May Spot On Your Trees

If you’re lucky enough to have a big garden with lots of lovely trees, you’d be wise to keep an eye on them throughout the year so you can spot any issues as they arise and before they become problematic. By and large, trees tend to look after themselves but you may find you need the services of a Somerset tree surgery expert at some point or other. Here are a few common issues you might see on your trees.

Honey fungus

This is the name given to different types of fungi that can attack and kill lots of woody or perennial plants by going for the roots. Do you see any white fungal growth at ground level between the bark and wood? You might also spot some toadstools on infected bits of the tree during autumn.

Powdery mildew

You may spot this during the summer months on trees like maples and oaks. Dryness at the root of the tree and poor air circulation can cause this, so try to avoid using high-nitrogen feed as this can affect younger shoots.

Dutch elm disease

This was first spotted in Europe at the turn of the century, dying out by the 40s. It came back with a vengeance in the late 60s – and ten years later, the majority of the elm population in the UK was dead. Symptoms (which appear at the start of summer) include wilting or yellowing leaves that turn brown and fall off. Peel back the bark to see if you can spot any dark brown or purple streaks in the wood.

Horse chestnut canker

According to The Woodland Trust, a new strain of this disease has increased in the UK, affecting trees of all ages right across the country. Symptoms include bleeding areas on tree stems and occasional bleeding on scaffold branches.
