How to Prevent Tree Disease

Unfortunately, trees are plagued with common diseases more often than we realize, but if you take the necessary steps to properly care for your tree, you won’t have to be concerned about saving your tree in the future.

When you prevent tree disease, you are not only saving that specific tree but also the trees around it. Consider the following ways to prevent disease:

  • Trim your tree branches as needed. Trimming dead branches or overgrowth allows for your tree to grow properly.
  • Water your trees when a drought occurs. Just like small shrubs or flower gardens, trees need water to survive.
  • Protect your trees while working in the yard. Avoid making a gash in the bark or near the stump.

If you need a tree removed, it’s vital to contact a tree professional. There are many elements to a tree that needs to be considered while cutting it down. At Mr. Tree, we have extensive experience serving the residents of Gainesville. Allow us to serve you!
